OVVO launches new V-1230 invisible connector

The new V-1230. Perfect for high-grade particle board of 15, 16 and 18mm thickness.

OVVO®, creator of the innovative, award-winning, INVISIBLE connection system, is excited to announce the launch of another NEW product in the “V” range, in direct response to industry requirements.   The new connector – the V-1230 – incorporates all features of the Interzum 2017 “Best of the Best”- award-winning V-0930 in a format that is ideally suited to high-grade chipboard of 15, 16 and 18mm thickness, and is also available in both permanent and releasable versions. Launching at FIMMA, Valencia, Spain on February 6th, the V-1230 will be demonstrated in a range of applications by Virutex on behalf of OVVO Ltd.

The new V-1230 connector has a deeper profile than the award-winning V-0930 connector, and significantly increases the holding strength delivered in chipboard materials, in which OVVO® can be used to deliver an invisible connection. It works best in high-grade chipboard with the thickness of 15mm, 16mm & 18mm and above, and is also compatible with leading high-end materials, such as high-pressure laminates, composite material and solid woods.

The innovative dovetail design featured in the “Best of the Best” award-winning V-0930 connector is retained and delivers increased intrinsic tolerance, which leads to enhanced shear and tensile strength of the joint created; the new connector also features a solid central rib that confers increased joint rigidity.   The single piece housing makes automatic insertion possible – a significant enhancement on the design of the original 1240 OVVO® Connector.

The team at OVVO® has worked tirelessly with industry partners to ensure the new connector is compatible with benchmark industry equipment – specifically with leading CNC equipment suppliers and software vendors to ensure ease of adoption leading to fully integrated manufacturing processes.  Each connection set is used with its own bespoke OVVO cutter for CNC compatibility and all OVVO connection sets are designed to work in conjunction with the OVVO hand tool (AB181), developed with Virutex.

OVVO® is now fully accessible to every level of the industry, from large-scale, CNC-equipped, manufacturer to DIY-enthusiast. Architects, interior designers and clients associated with prestige construction projects in both residential and commercial property sectors are increasingly seeking more flexibility in design, and OVVO® can inspire a wider range of design possibilities.

The range of applications that manufacturers are finding for OVVO® continues to increase, and the benefits and efficiencies that OVVO® brings to customers are continually being proven: this invisible, tool-free connection system not only saves customers time and money, driven by increased production efficiencies, reduced product assembly times and reduced shipping and transportation costs, but also provides customers with a differentiated product or service that allows them to develop significant competitive advantage in their industry channels.

OVVO® MD, Brendan Phillips said “the industry has been excited by OVVO® since the original 1240 connector launched; we have identified significant demand for a product that will work effectively in chipboard and proudly present the V-1230. We are truly excited to extend the award-winning V-range and bring the bigger connector to market that widens the range and scale of applications to which OVVO® can bring a unique set of design possibilities and production efficiencies”.
