The two-day seminar is a long tradition of Stiles, designed to provide manufacturing professionals with the latest production solutions in the industry. Guests of the event received valuable insights from some of the industry's leading experts and experienced hands-on demonstrations in innovative panel and solid wood processing techniques, many of which will be on display at AWFS in Las Vegas this July.
“Exposure to new manufacturing concepts and technologies as well as the desire to continuously improve are imperative for companies who wish to remain successful in this rapidly evolving industry,” says Chris Dolbow, Director of Marketing at Stiles Machinery.
“Events like our recent Manufacturing Solutions Seminar and the upcoming AWFS show in July are excellent opportunities for manufacturers to gain a competitive advantage over their competition through smarter production concepts.”
The first day of the seminar was dedicated to panel processing where experts showcased real-world solutions in inventory management as well as work-cell demonstrations in workpiece sorting, sizing, machining, edgebanding and more. Day two was dedicated to solid wood processing with a special focus on entry doors and windows. Guests were introduced to the newest addition to Stiles’ impressive line of wood machinery, the Salvador SuperPush 200 Optimizing Cross Cut Saw.
Stiles continued to wow guests with the introduction of tapio, the world’s first digital platform designed to coordinate the entire value chain of the wood industry. From production and processes to marketing and data flow, everything manufacturers need to be successful is now centralized in one easy-to-use platform designed to dramatically increase efficiency and productivity.
