A number of new exhibitors have been announced for the W Exhibition, the UK’s only woodworking machinery and materials show.
First time exhibitor, Radecal Machine Sales, will be presenting its Piranha and Spartan mid-range CNC range at the four-day event at the NEC Birmingham.
“Our customers were asking us why we were not exhibiting at the W exhibition and we stood up and took notice,” said Nikko Liadopoulos, sales & marketing manager. “We manufacture CNC routers and have historically exhibited at signage exhibitions. The woodworking sector is a massive market for the company and it’s the right time for us to be part of a big machinery and materials show. With woodworkers predominantly using 8×4 meter and jumbo sheets, we’ve chosen to exhibit machines that reflect this trend and also include quick release and automatic tool changers.”
Tawi UK (pictured) will be exhibiting its vast range of handling equipment for the first time at the show. “We’re focusing our attention heavily on the timber industry and the W Exhibition is the ideal platform for us to promote our products,” said Danielle Cheshire, sales & marketing manager. “The woodworking sector is a key market for us and, following a recent expansion, we’re now in a position to promote our handling solutions further.” Tawi’s stand will focus on its range of vacuum lifters that will be demonstrated at the show.
Following a six-year hiatus, Fercell Engineering will be returning to exhibition. Its stand designed around a large filter will showcase a range of woodwaste management products from shredders to briquette presses, offering visitors a fully interactive experience. Natalie Owen, digital marketing executive at Fercell Engineering said: “Fercell Engineering has evolved a lot in recent years and it is time for us to promote our widening product portfolio to the woodworking sector. As a manufacturer of recycling and ventilation products, people often think we only work with large companies but that is a misconception.
“We offer solutions for all sized operations and that’s the message we want to portray at the show. The W Exhibition is a great opportunity for us to engage with new and existing customers and promote our technology at a show that has the industry fully behind it.”
It’s not just new machinery that will be promoted at the W Exhibition. Swiss wood joining expert, Lamello, will be demonstrating its range of clever jointing systems for panels and solid timber. Shaye Chatfield, area sales manager, said: “We’ve had a presence at the W Exhibition before, but this year will mark our very first stand.”
The Lamello team will also be demonstrating its newly launched Cabineo connector cabinet fitting –an efficient alternative to traditional cam and dowels, its timesaving P-System and its invisible magnetic joining element Invis.
Finally, sheet metal and ducting supplier, Norduct Ltd and cuttings specialist Metal World will also be exhibiting new technology and the latest innovations for the very first time. The W Exhibition will also welcome machinery giant Cehisa and German abrasives expert, AWUKO Abrasives, to the comprehensive line up.
Lisa Campagnola, event director said: “It’s fantastic for the show and the industry that so many new names are exhibiting at the W Exhibition this September. It will be our biggest show yet and with our dedicated furniture components show, Elements, running alongside it, 2018 is set to be a great success.”
The W Exhibition and Elements run from 30 September to 3 October 2018 at the NEC Birmingham. For more information please visit www.wexhibition.co.uk
