WPE Florida preview videos: Maksiwa bander and saw

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. – Maksiwa International will bring its 40th anniversary celebration to the Closets Expo and Wood Pro Expo Florida, April 13-14 at the Palm Beach County Convention Center.

Over its four-decade-long history, Maksiwa has supplied woodworking machinery to thousands of small and medium shops around the world. The company provides free, live video support to its customers from its office in Pompano Beach, Fla.

Maksiwa will participate in the Running Machine Program, which features scheduled demonstrations of woodworking technology during both days of the show.

Maksiwa plans to display the following four machines for processing wood panels.
