Hardwood lumber

The demand for more sustainable products is materializing as a desire for authenticity in the homes we live in and the properties we develop. Available from Bingaman & Son Lumber, the use of hardwood in homes, commercial properties, and building products gives consumers the authenticity they are seeking, without even having to try.

Saw safety system

Felder Group's new PCS (Preventative Contact System) is a saw safety technology for industrial saws to keep operators safe. Movement detected within a certain threshold triggers a safety mechanism that quickly lowers the sawblade below the saw table before the blade touches any flesh.

Customizable CNC router

From softwoods to hardwoods and all types of woods in between, AXYZ says there’s no limit to what its Infinite Router can cut. Available in custom lengths from over 50 ft (15m) and up to 12 ft (3m) wide, AXYZ says the CNC router is easily customizable to suit customers' specific needs.

CO2 laser

Laguna's PL 12/20 CO2 laser features automatic focusing along with an automatically adjustable working table to fit odd-shaped stock, a rotary attachment, and different types of mounts like a bead bed. The lifting height can reach 12”. The laser utilizes RECI laser tubes and the HG series linear rails provide for high load capacity and rigidity.

CNC router with auto tool changer

With the addition of an automatic tool changer, ShopBot says its full-size PRSalpha CNC router becomes a production powerhouse. Adding an ATC reduces production time by automatically changing cutters during tool paths, allowing for the completion of complex projects in a fraction of the time. PRSalpha CNC routers are available in 4’x4’ and 4’x8’ sizes, as well as larger and customizable configurations.

CNC moulder for cabinet door profiles

Available from Stiles Machinery, the Vertongen Profil Compact Kitchen is a CNC moulder with one vertical spindle. The company says many varieties of kitchen cabinet door profile "stickings" can be machined without manual setup between different profiles. The vertical spindle is engineered for stacking tools and the solid steel table and cutout for the vertical spindle profile contribute to exact accuracy, the company adds.


The Kentwood M609X Moulder was introduced in 2006 as Stiles Machinery's very first moulder to the market. Stiles now offers the 15-year anniversary edition, which the company says combines heft and technology, making it an efficient and optimizing workhorse in the shop.

With its consistent reddish/brown color, it's no surprise sapele has evolved to be the primary mahogany species used in the U.S. market, Baillie says. Popular uses include millwork, furniture, doors/windows, musical instruments, veneer, and plywood.

High production CNC machining center

Biesse says its new Rover B FT HD (High Dynamics) CNC router provides top speeds and acceleration in a nesting center. The machine features an extremely rigid structure, boosted twin drives and absolute synchronicity, with a vectorial speed of more than 170 mpm, oversized rack guides and pinions for maximum movements of the X and Y axes, and multi-zone work tables.
