Milling & Machining
Our single- and dual-zone CNC equipment can exceed your demands in flat panel and 3D milling and machining. Stiles industry-leading solutions have three-, four- or five-axis head configurations for milling mechanical and visual plastics, fiberglass, nonferrous metals, composites and other advanced materials. We offer multiple milling and sawing, drilling or water jet processes, and material holding options including mechanical clamping, roller or vacuum holding. You can achieve high-levels of accuracy with automated feedback loops and error compensation. For proven flexibility, durability and to increase your capabilities in high production manufacturing contact Stiles.
Cutting & Sawing
We offer saws to cut all types of materials with precision, dependability and accuracy. When working with nonferrous metals, plastics or advanced materials and composites, our wide range of panel-sizing equipment is capable of cutting at near-finish dimensions, reducing waste and saving material within your entire aircraft interior. For high quality, chip-free cuts with exceptionally clean, smooth edges work with Stiles.
Sanding & Veneering
Stiles technology in orbital, wide-belt, brush, profile, robotic and calibration sanding can fill all your production needs. Our sanding equipment provides excellent surface preparation for finishing or the perfect finish on your end product. We can meet the high performance standards for sensitivity, precision, calibration, accuracy, and thickness tolerances you demand. We offer consistent, smooth results on every material our sanders touch, including wood, PVC, glass, fiberglass, composites, metals and even some difficult to sand plastics. Talk to us about your sanding problems and we will find the best options available to be certain you finish strong.
Stiles can help you reliably produce veneers for any project. With guillotines that produce the highest cutting accuracy, and splicers for making the tightest joints—regardless if you book match or slip match faces—we have the veneering technology you’re looking for. Let us custom-tailor the right line for your operation.
Quality aircraft interiors require quality finishes. We offer the most comprehensive line of finishing equipment from spray machines, to vacuum coating, roll coating, and robotic processes to provide consistent finishes for profile, flat, 3D and non-rigid parts. Stiles’ finishing technologies translate into savings in operating costs by reducing waste, time on cleaning and maintenance, all improving uptime on your line. We offer equipment that will apply, dry and clean surface finishes for any color, clarity and sheen on a full range of substrates from plastics and wood, to solid surfaces and metals. Let us help you achieve top-quality finishes for top quality interiors and bottom-line savings.
Eliminate the arduous process of polishing edges by hand with the latest technology from Stiles. We offer solutions to polish flat edges from a matte finish to high-gloss on visible plastics, acrylics, polycarbonates, aluminum and Corian®. They can also apply chamfered edges for perfect joints. Talk to us and learn how you can realize substantial savings on time and labor costs while increasing your efficiency and product quality.
Material handling is critical to efficient manufacturing. We can provide material handling options from the basic, entry-level equipment to completely automated and integrated systems—everything from vacuum and scissor lifts to return conveyers, even full robotic systems with lights-out capabilities. Whatever material you use, we have the equipment to move it, turn it, flip it, stack it and store it. Let us design a material handling system to speed your production, reduce your labor and damage while putting the right material in the right place, at the right time.
Dust Extraction & Collection
Dust extraction reduces your costs and improves your performance. Machine and tool life increases while improving your production efficiency, avoiding slowdowns and promoting healthy working conditions. Stiles dust collection systems incorporate numerous safety features to help reduce potential risks of explosions, protecting your employees—and your investment—and aligning with OSHA and NFPA guidelines. Let us design a custom dust collection system that meets your needs.
