Meetings & Events

To showcase its new Stiles Finishing Technologies business, Stiles Machinery Inc. is hosting an open house at its facility in High Point, N.C. The event, targeted at everyone from the small shop owner to major manufacturers, is scheduled for October 4-6.

"Our new applications and testing facility in High Point has the broadest range of finishing equipment in North America. We have combined Stiles Finishing and Sanding departments together at our lab in recognition that sanding, coating, and drying applications are equally important factors of the total finishing process," states Jim Stube, sales engineer for Stiles' E-Tech Services.

"While there truly is a ‘something for everyone’ here that does, or has an interest in finishing, we will be doing demonstrations as well as seminars  that cater to all manufacturers in the wood and non-wood sectors of business," Stube notes.  "If I had to choose one area of interest to the window and door market specifically, it would be the Makor Iride Profile Spray Demo on Tuesday at 3:30 p.m. and Thursday at 11:00 a.m."

Among other highlights of the event will be  educational sessions covering quick-change color technology, digital imaging systems for decorative surfaces, new oven curing technologies, edge coating and filling processes and orbital sanding.

More details on the event are available on the Stiles website at
