Stiles will be highlighting the importance of digital integration at the International Woodworking Fair IWF2022 in Atlanta, GA, August 23-26, 2022, with a dedicated digital solutions area called the Stiles Digital Hub inside booth 5034 in Exhibit Hall B.
Stiles Digital provides the software and diagnostic tools that give operators, managers, and owners complete control over single machines and even complete networked systems. They offer solutions that streamline workflow throughout your enterprise, from the shop floor to the front office, providing data that manufacturers need to excel.
Software and other digital solutions are revolutionizing the day-to-day operations of wood manufacturers. This year, Stiles Digital has a high focus on tailoring their approach to each individual customer by providing a solution built around them, rather than a generic digital product offering. Stiles Digital software systems are designed to accommodate each customer’s specific process and help aid in their future growth. “Stiles Digital is perfect for anyone who feels they have more potential for growth but isn’t sure machinery alone will accomplish it,” said Ben Williams, Digital Solutions Sales Manager at Stiles Machinery.
Stiles recognizes that the industry is facing significant labor shortages. To help address these challenges, Stiles Digital has designed and implemented highly automated systems capable of combatting labor shortages and opening opportunities for individuals in the talent pool who are looking for more interactive, software-driven experiences. “There is no such thing as full ‘future proofing’, but for anyone wanting to increase the odds of success and boost growth in the future, digital solutions are an absolute necessity when it comes to dealing with our ever-changing woodworking and manufacturing businesses,” said Williams.
Looking forward to IWF 2022, Stiles Digital will offer several demonstrations including one-on-one customer consultations and demonstrations, interactions with manufacturing and production simulations, and general data workflows in an area dedicated to digital discovery. Stiles will also be providing a VIP customer experience in which attendees will get to listen to and learn about current customers’ digital transformations and how digital solutions have broadened the capabilities of their businesses.
In addition to this cutting-edge software, Stiles will also be showcasing a multitude of products for edgebanding, solid wood, sanding and finishing, computerized numerical control (CNC), and more. The Stiles booth at IWF will be one of the biggest, encompassing a total of 29,200 square feet with more than 60 machines under power at booths 5034 and 5052 in Exhibit Hall B. Stiles has product experts, suppliers, and consultants from across the globe that are ready to help North American manufacturers meet today’s market challenges with solutions built around you.
