In March, Stiles Machinery hosted a tour in Germany and Switzerland for window and door manufacturers.
The U.S.-based manufacturers visited European window and door manufacturers that have embraced new manufacturing processes to expand capabilities, reduce waste and improve production quality. The group also attended Fensterbau/Frontale, the European fair for window, door and façade technologies.
Stiles will host its first tour of finishing technology on May 18-26 in Europe, and will host its fall tour of technology on September 21-29. For more information and to register, visit www.stilesmachinery.com/events.

Q: I have read every Wood Doctor column you have written and have gained a lot of practical information. But here is a question I have not seen addressed before. As background, our fairly large company has really gone into JIT, just-in-time, manufacturing, which means in-process materials cannot sit around very long at all. Well, this has recently translated into machining our glued up panels (edge-glued on a clamp carrier) within 24 hours after they are glued, or sometimes less. Of course, you know what the problem is: sunken glue joints that are obvious after finishing. My suggestion of waiting three days after gluing, as we have always done, has not been well-received. I am hoping that you have some help for us.
