More than 100 woodworkers attended the two day seminar June 9 to 10, 2016 learning from experts about best practices and manufacturing trends and seeing demonstrations on the latest technologies in panel processing and solid wood manufacturing. The information provided at the event sets them up for success at IWF.
“Having this event prior to IWF is really crucial for woodworkers looking for the best solution for their manufacturing process,” says Chris Dolbow, marketing manager at Stiles Machinery. “It offers them a head start on understanding the competitive advantages of the new technologies they will experience in our booth at the IWF fair this August.” He concluded.
Attendees at the event witnessed trend-setting construction methods demonstrated for both frameless and face frame cabinet construction and furniture manufacturing. Experts showcased a variety of manufacturing work flows that combined innovative applications and award-winning software in material sizing, machining, edgebanding and inventory management – all of which will be on display in Atlanta in the Stiles booth. Advanced technologies in solid wood manufacturing provided attendees with a first-hand look at self-centering planers, state-of-the-art defect scanning solutions and the latest in millwork processing developments to drive quality and yield optimization.
Visitors also received thought-provoking information from trending topics including ‘Industry 4.0’ for data-driven manufacturing and maintaining machine longevity through preventative maintenance and tooling. This was the second in a series of three Manufacturing Solutions Seminars that Stiles Machinery will host this year, with the next event scheduled for the middle of November.
