GRAND RAPIDS, MI--Stiles Machinery announced that it will launch the Weeke Vantech Video Contest on July 1 allowing a lucky winner to use a Weeke Vantech 480 router free for one year.

Contestants need to submit a creative video by September 10 convincing Stiles that they deserve to win. Stiles is looking for a first-time CNC router user. All videos will be posted on You Tube and are open for voting until October 1. The winner will receive the machine and a camcorder to document, on-line, their experiences with the machine.

“We want other companies to see what’s involved in using this technology and the importance of ongoing support services,” says Stiles VP of Sales & Marketing, Stephan Waltman, “as well as to see how versatile and flexible the Weeke Vantech is. There really is no end to how effective a shop can be when using a quality CNC router. Using video in this creative fashion is a unique approach in our industry. I hope people have some fun with it.”
