Schelling will exhibit its new board inventory-storage system at IWF.
Schelling America and IMA America will exhibit together at the International Woodworking Fair, August 22-25 in Atlanta.
For the third time, the companies will jointly exhibit their latest woodworking machinery and service developments, and will be located at booth 6446/6434. The companies have exhibited at the fair every year since its inception, which the companies say demonstrates their commitment to serving customers and the North American Woodworking Industry.
At IWF, Schelling will exhibit its new board inventory-storage system, which the company says increases efficiency by delivering single boards or bundles to the cutting area and informing the manufacturer of stock levels. Schelling will exhibit the new inventory-storage system in conjunction with its double-pusher, model FH8 panel saw.

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.
