The W Exhibition is just around the corner and will be happening at the NEC for four days from 30 September to 3 October. Now under the wing of events company Angus Montgomery, the event has been running in one guise or another for over 40 years. Taking place every two years, the W Exhibition offers the UK’s furniture and joinery manufacturers the chance to meet and network with other industry players and see what’s new on the market.
New Axminster Trade machines
Once again, Axminster will be exhibiting, using the event as a platform to showcase the recently upgraded trade rated range of woodworking machinery. As a result, five new machines have joined the Axminster Trade range: a bandsaw, table saw, two spindle moulders and a dust processor. These machines are aimed at bespoke furniture and joinery makers, small scale kitchen/bathroom producers and keen home woodworkers wanting a higher spec machine.
The five new machines were chosen for their uniqueness or build quality. The Gyro dust processor is compact and needs no assembly. It is built with ground-breaking axial centrifugation technology. The new bandsaw is designed to be one of the best 350mm bandsaws on the market with many exclusive features. The table saw will take some of Axminster’s unique accessories such as parts from the UJK Technology range. There are two spindle moulders: deluxe and CNC. The CNC has a Siemens control system, allowing you to mould profiles with optimum accuracy and achieve perfect results. The deluxe comes as a 230V and 415V version.
Swedish wood processing from Logosol
Also new this year to the Axminster product range are three 4-sided planer moulding machines from Swedish company Logosol. These compact, multi-head machines enable you to plane and mould timber on all four sides in one swift manoeuvre. Logosol design machines to suit a large majority of woodworking projects whether you are a joiner, door maker or furniture manufacturer.
A big plus is that Logosol supply these machines ready to run; you just need to attach a chip extractor. So, from day one you will be able to produce up to 720 linear metres of wood per hour.
Logosol design their machines to give you maximum comfort. When you operate the machine, you’re in a comfortable working position where the machined timber comes out at waist level. Plus, the settings for the different machined products are logical and simple to understand, making it easy to achieve good results straightaway.
All models have planing and moulding mills to enable you to produce superb, finished products. The largest model (PH360) will be at the W Exhibition. Therefore, visitors will be able to see a demonstration of this machine.
Elements of Innovation
This is an important show for us where we will be exhibiting our new and exciting high-end woodworking machinery. We have also entered a product into the Elements of Innovation awards running at the W Exhibition. The criteria stated that the product must have come to market since W Exhibition 2016. Also, the product should be brand new, standout and innovative. For us there was only one contender: the UJK Parf Super Dog which we launched earlier this year. Wish us luck!
