The Manufacturing Solutions Seminar is hosted by Stiles Machinery twice a year in the fall and spring.

Fall Manufacturing Solutions Seminar attendees were exposed to new techniques, trends and technologies related to panel processing, solid wood, and surface finishing and sanding solutions. The two-day event included live demonstrations of machinery, presentations from experts in the field, and panel discussions where various industry perspectives were shared.

Manufacturers in attendance came from a variety of different industry backgrounds and experiences and learned from both the planned event curriculum happening around them, as well as from fellow industry professionals there. Guests arrived eager to learn, asking questions and exploring equipment during open machine demonstrations. Seminar guests seemed to be particularly interested in advancing technology solutions—such as manufacturing software like HOMAG iX and SmartCabinet, and automation—and how they will impact the future of the woodworking manufacturing industry.

“It was great to see so many manufacturers deeply focused on automation and software to combat their ongoing challenges with skilled labor shortages. Having this many thought leaders and industry experts in one building creates an exciting atmosphere that fosters continuous improvement, growth, and entrepreneurship,” said Kameron Wildfong, marketing manager at Stiles Machinery.

Stiles Machinery will host the next Manufacturing Solutions Seminar in Spring 2024. Visit to stay updated with the latest event information.
