Surface finish is the key to craftsmanship
You can do everything else well, but if your finishes aren’t flawless, it reflects poorly on everything you do.
Wood finishing still dominates the industry but other materials and new technologies are arriving constantly. Metals and plastics are becoming more common, redefining the art and science of sanding.
Stiles brings you sanding machines that offer a wide variety of functionality and capability so you can make the highest quality product with an affordable investment. We offer sanders for all sanding projects, from complex sanders to surface sanders for solid wood, veneer, lacquers and edge sanders.
Edge and profile sanding machines are equipped with belt sanding units for an equal sanding result on the each piece. A flexible suspension of the sanding shoes enables the sanding units to adapt optimally to the profile tolerances. For special tasks there are edge chamfering units, units for rounded edges and sanding wheel units.
Stock removal from solid wood is accomplished with a longitudinal sanding process. Unlike surface sanding machines, solid wood sanding machines incorporate brush rollers or air jets to remove debris. Some machines can sand both sides of a piece in one pass reducing operator involvement and speeding processing. In addition to flat surfaces, several machines are adept at finishing shaped panels and pieces with varying thicknesses and contours.
Lacquer finishes require a specific surface for the best adhesion. Machines integrating both longitudinal and cross sanding abrasive belts offer the best results. These machines must be equipped with a de-ionization and dust-cleaning device installed on the machines out feed.
Surface sanding is the most common form of stock removal, accomplished with abrasive belts or orbiting abrasive pads. Key differences in machines include size and direction of the feed, the number of heads/rollers employed to rotate abrasive belts, and the way belt or pad pressure is applied to the surface. Longitudinal sanding is typical but cross sanding is used when preparing a surface for a lacquer finish. Brush rollers may be used to clean and smooth the surface before final finishing.
Complex profiles, cutouts, contours and three-dimensional components can be handled by programmable, high precision robot sanders.
Veneer sanding is used to clean up glue seams and remove slight surface imperfections that are sometimes encountered in the veneer splicing, jointing and gluing process. Brush rollers or air jets are used for cleaning and some machines combine longitudinal and cross sanding features as well as one-pass upper and lower longitudinal sanding.
