Boa-S Machine Description

The dowel construction process is proven to produce more boxes per hour per employee than any other process. The case clamp is an integral part of this process. The Pillar Machine BOA-S is designed to meet medium to large production needs while maintaining the flexibility for a large variety of sizes. Ultimately the case clamps speeds up production, eliminates the need to post laminate finished ends and ensures all your boxes are clamped square.

Standard Operation

While parts are setting up in the clamp, additional hardware, drawer slides and doors can be installed. The interwoven pressure beam design is faster than pod style clamping systems. Constant and even force is applied through both beams evenly to force the box into a square location while the glue on the dowels is cured.

installation and training

Installation & Training

One day of installation is included in price of machinery.

Customer Responsibilities:
1. Floor preparation per your needs.
2. All power supply connection per national and local codes and standards.
3. Any necessary pneumatic connections and supply.
4. Moving of the equipment which could require forklift(s), rigging, and labor.
5. Materials and tooling needed for machine testing, training, or adjusting.


The machine will ship fully assembled, and nearly functional. Pillar Machine expects the machinery to be in place, and all the necessary utilities to have already been brought to the machine before the technician arrives. The technician will finish preparing the machine to run and instruct any machine operators in how to maintain and operate the machine properly.

Should the machine not be ready at the time of the technician’s arrival, Pillar Machine reserves the right to charge up to $1000 for itinerary changes in the case of a complete cancellation of the installation, Pillar Machine will charge the full $1600 per day rate plus all travel expenses for the return visit.


Training should be attended by all individuals that need to understand how the machine functions including all Management personnel, Team Leaders, Operators and Maintenance personnel. If this machine is going in operation for multiple shifts per day, we suggest having all personal from those shifts attend this training session as well. If this is not possible and they need to be trained from the factory technician, please ask your Pillar Machine sales representative to add an additional day of training.


Notes: One day of technician time is defined no less than 6 hours on-site. The technician will spend the first few hours getting the machine setup correctly and the remaining time training.

If you have purchased a custom machine that has custom tooling you have purchased, make sure to have the tooling onsite and ready for installation, prior to the installer arriving. If we purchased the tooling, it will be on your machine. Have your samples ready for the installer.

The technician has planned the day(s) to install the machine and do any training of the machine as indicated in the contract. Having your appropriate tools and equipment needed to do the install and training will provide you and the technician a smooth install.
