Bring It All Together. Or Take It Apart.
Archdale, North Carolina, USA, July 17, 2019
When it comes to connections, they’re not always permanent, nor do they need to be. With the all-new Häfele Ixconnect Spreading Connector SC 8/60 large pieces of furniture can be assembled and disassembled as needed for transport. This Häfele exclusive, patented innovation is on display at the Association of Woodworking and Furnishing Suppliers (AWFS) Fair in booth 4422.
“The one-piece Ixconnect Spreading Connector SC 8/60 creates new design and construction possibilities for the industry,” says Jon Farlow, category manager for Häfele. “This is a simple, quick connection for large furniture that can be easily disassembled for transport and reassembled upon arriving to the final destination.”
The SC 8/60 is almost completely invisible once assembled leaving a clean look with this connection. It spreads out and pulls furniture parts together with a 180 degree turn using a hex key. Machining is a standard 8 mm bore, with no glue or clamps needed and a simple hex key allows you take apart or put together your project as needed. Panels can be as thin as 15 mm.
Working in concert with the SC 8/60 the Ixconnect Rear Panel Connect RPC S 15/25 screws in the rear panel from the front side with no drill hole required. The connector is used with standard 15mm holes and serves as a mounting aid for the rear panel.

The Ixconnect Spreading Connector SC 8/25 is ideal for putting together small furniture and/or associated drawer boxes with no tools or glue. All you need is a few 8 mm holes to get started. Furniture is efficiently assembled with the SC 8/25 and won’t come apart. A definite must-have for any woodworking project with scale of production.
