Laminating adds dimension and value to your business while adding functionality, strength and appeal to your products. The lamination process can be as basic as gluing two or more smaller pieces of wood together to construct a wider and larger component. Like finger jointing, laminated product can be stronger than solid wood and less likely to warp under stress.
Complex shapes machined to precise tolerances at high processing speeds require accuracy that only CNC technology can deliver. Creating highly detailed components from costly raw materials leaves no room for error. CNC routers and machining centers eliminate human error while performing tedious and dangerous tasks endlessly, shift after shift, year after year.
The variety of edge banding machines offered by Stiles range from simple gluing machines to machines that sand, shape, cut, and apply an assortment of edge treatments using a variety of application methods. Edgebanders range from stand-alone units for small-to-medium size shops, to mid-grade machines with a variety of options, to high-performance machines for optimum quality at very high production speeds.
We understand how important a quality finish is to your business. From kitchen cabinets to architectural millwork; automotive to aerospace, plastic component suppliers; to flooring and store fixtures, we help you deliver higher quality products more efficiently, more economically, and using "green" technology.
Material handling can match up seamlessly. For decades, manufacturing processes were labor-intensive; hands-on at every stage of processing. While many shops now run higher speed processing machines that are semi- or fully-automated, production rates drop and damage occurs between machines, as pieces are moved from one processing stage to the next. A wobbly pallet loader or a shaky hi-lo operator can set you back on production and put a dent in your profitability.
Panel sizing is the workhorse of many shops, an operation that links you to almost every one of your competitors. Panel and beam saws and sliding table saws will quickly process wood panels, wood composites, plastics, and non-ferrous metals into smaller components for other products. The more precise your equipment, the better your product.
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.
Make the most of your machinery investment with precision tools that are exactly right for the job. Stiles tooling is designed to withstand demanding tasks, and to help you increase production, improve efficiency, assure quality and extend the life of your equipment.
We strive to bring the best possible products at the best possible price. We know that means providing a high-quality product free from defects and issues to provide an optimal manufacturing environment.
