Milling & Machining
Stiles offers single- and dual-zone CNC equipment that will exceed your demands for flat panel and 3D milling and machining. Achieve high-level accuracy with automated feedback loops and error compensation. Our industry-leading solutions have three-, four- or five-axis head configurations capable of 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. Stiles machines provide the flexibility and durability you need to increase your capabilities in high production manufacturing.
Cutting & Sawing
Increase your throughput on any size, any thickness and any material. We offer any size marine and automotive component manufacturers the beam saws, sliding table saws, rip saws, and chop saws to produce chip-free cuts with precision and accuracy. Our dependable and accurate cutting equipment produce razor-sharp cuts that are ready for the next production process. To find the best saw for your application.
How you handle your material is critical to your manufacturing efficiency. We offer material handling systems that range from basic, entry-level handling to completely automated and integrated systems—everything from return conveyers and vacuum and scissor lifts to fully automated robotics. No matter the material, we have the equipment to turn it, flip it, move it, stack and store it. Let us design a material handling system to reduce your labor and damage while putting the right material in the right place for faster production.
Stiles’ offers proven technology for orbital, wide-belt, profile, brush, robotic and calibration sanding for all your manufacturing needs. We can provide excellent surface preparation before finishing or the perfect finish on your end product. We meet the high performance standards for sensitivity, precision, calibration, accuracy and thickness tolerances you demand. The result is consistent and 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 requirements and we will find the best options available to be certain you finish strong.
Our finishing technologies provide savings in operating costs by reducing your waste, time savings on cleaning, which all improve your uptime. We offer the most complete line of finishing equipment from roll coaters and spray machines, to vacuum coating and robotic processes for consistent finishes in profile, flat, 3D and non-rigid parts. Our equipment will clean and dry, apply surface finishes for any color, clarity and sheen on a full range of substrates from plastics and wood, to solid surfaces and metals. Let’s talk about how you would like to finish.
The latest technology from Stiles can eliminate the labor-intensive process of polishing edges by hand. Our solutions polish flat edges from a matte finish to high-gloss on visible plastics, acrylics, polycarbonates, aluminum and Corian®. You can also chamfer edges for perfect joints every time. Consult with us. You will learn how substantial your savings can be, while you increase your efficiency and product quality.
Laminating & Pressing
Stiles laminating and pressing equipment provides you with high-efficiency on large and small batch sizes. We offer the most cost effective solutions for laminating with paper, PMMA (acrylics), vinyl, HPL or high-gloss film, plus pressing for veneer through feed applications, 3DL and TFL – as well as profile wrapping. Our machines are capable of working with a wide variety of substrates, adhesives and processes, including PUR lamination for the latest in high-gloss surfaces. Let us find the best solutions for your laminating needs.
Planing, Shaping & Moulding
We offer the technology to shape, mould, plane and joint in small-batch or high-speed, high-capacity manufacturing. Stiles’ machines handle the heavy use these applications require with accuracy, consistency and reliability. Ease of operation means quick changeover so you can move faster, producing top-quality products.
Dust Extraction & Collection
Effective dust extraction is critical to your safety and production performance. Stiles’ dust extraction equipment offers numerous safety features to reduce the risks of explosions, protecting your investment. Proper dust extraction will also increase your machine and tool life, your production efficiency and provide healthy working conditions, which align with OSHA and NFPA regulations.
