Daltons Wadkin is pleased to announce that this year’s Wood & Panel Machinery Show will be held in Nottingham on 3rd-5th October 2023. The event offers a fantastic opportunity to see live demonstrations of the latest machinery for processing multiple materials, from solid timber and wood-based panels to plastics, composites and metal.

“Our in-house exhibitions have proved a great success with attendees increasing year on year,” enthuses sales director, Andy Walsh. “We are excited to showcase our leading brands and give customers the chance to witness first-hand what sets us apart from the competition. Our customers can expect the highest quality equipment backed by professional, reliable aftercare. We welcome the industry to visit, discuss and plan their future machinery investments.”


There will be a big emphasis on crosscutting, with automatic and manual models on show along with a range of tables and stop systems. The full range of Salvador optimising crosscut saws – including the ever-popular SuperPush 200, high capacity SuperPush 250 and versatile SuperAngle 600 – will showcase the huge production benefits these machines can deliver.

CNC machining

Kimla CNC routers and fibre lasers will be showing the multi-material processing capabilities of the range. These are ideally suited to those working with sheet metal, panels, rubber or foam, for example.

A range of optional cutting heads including high speed spindles (up to 60,000 rpm), oscillating knife and creasing wheel can be configured to suit almost any production requirement.

Kimla’s unique operating system and superior build quality deliver significant advantages and need to be seen to be believed.

Panel sawing

Daltons Wadkin is proud to claim that it offers the largest range of panel saws in the UK and Ireland. Working with leading manufacturers including SCM, Elcon and Altendorf, the company can call upon any one of over 40 models of sliding table panel saw, vertical panel saw, or beam saw to solve customers’ sawing requirements.

On show will be the latest Elcon wall saws with patented dust extraction technology, SCM dimension saws with the new Eye-S touch-screen control, along with further models to be confirmed.

Wide-belt sanders

Key models from SCM and Houfek will highlight the many benefits modern wide belt sanders can bring to almost any workshop. Save time, improve calibrating accuracy and surface finish while protecting operators from exposure to harmful sanding dust. A choice of head configurations and working widths are available to satisfy solid wood and panel finishing demands.

Sold wood ripping

It wouldn’t be a show without the impressive Stenner band resaws. The latest ST100R model will be on demonstration with pitless installation, powerful feed mechanism, advanced operator safety features and modern guarding. Customers are increasingly trading in their old-style resaws or more modern but lightweight “equivalents” for this heavy-duty workhorse. Come and see why.

More …

Classical machinery from Wadkin and SCM, including planer moulders, thicknessers, spindle moulders, lathes and more will also be on show. Full details of makes and models will be confirmed soon.
