The forthcoming W14 exhibition at the NEC Birmingham 5 to 8 October provides an opportunity for Daltons Wadkin to display their impressive array of high profile machinery brands within the UK marketplace. The company, now in its 113th year, have accumulated vast experience and a considerable number of achievements since Alex Dalton’s Great Grandfather started the business at the beginning of the last century. Daltons Wadkin have moved with the times however and in order to reflect current demand across a wide range of industries their focus is now very much on providing specialist machinery to suit individual requirements whether they represent the traditional solid timber and joinery sector, furniture manufacturers, public authorities or industries as far reaching and diverse as motor manufacturing and aerospace.
Visitors to stand numbers 7D475/80 at W14 will notice the change of emphasis when they are confronted for example with equipment for the panel industry featuring Kimla CNC machining centres, Nimac beam saws, Altendorf sliding table panel saws and Elcon vertical panel cutting equipment, including incidentally the revolutionary fully automated and programmable Quadra.
Panel sizing has not always been the strongest point where the Daltons Wadkin portfolio is concerned but the company are following trends and demand from an increasingly diverse range of customers and feel they now have a range of equipment to match or surpass anything alternative manufacturers have to offer.
Complimentary to these products the Nottingham based machinery distributors and manufacturers will also be showing equipment for the solid timber industry which includes the award winning high speed programmable Salvador Crosscutting Systems, the Kuper Planer Moulder range from Germany, one of the latest Band Resaws from the famous UK based manufacturer Stenner, a high performance and versatile Multi Rip Saw from Italian manufacturer CML and a number of machines representing the classical range from Wadkin for which the company are both manufacturer and distributor.
All in all an impressive array of equipment with a very considerable pedigree which it is hoped will make a big impact on the many thousands of visitors expected to visit the NEC in October.
Daltons Wadkin technical staff as well as representatives from some of their principals will be on hand to offer advice and guidance. Information concerning the company’s other activities will also be available including the supply of rebuilt and the upgrading of existing machinery, certified woodworking machine operator training, a support services division embracing contract servicing, breakdown cover, spare parts and tooling supplies and an increasing involvement in transport and machine moving facilities factory to factory.
