Newfields Timber is an independent timber merchant based in Stoke On Trent, supplying high quality softwood timber for building and freight packaging. To meet the growing demand for cut to size sheet material, it looked to specialist supplier Daltons Wadkin for a replacement vertical panel saw.

Daltons Wadkin is the sole distributor for specialist European manufacturer, Elcon. With a complete range of standard and tailored solutions for cutting wood-based panels, plastics, composites and non-ferrous metals, the company is extremely well-placed to exceed customers expectations.

Following a detailed demonstration at Daltons Wadkin’s Nottingham showroom, Newfields Timber chose to invest in the Elcon 215DS vertical panel saw. With a large 4300 x 2150mm sheet capacity and 55mm cutting depth, the 215DS offers fast, safe and accurate panel sizing.

Optional digital readouts to the vertical and horizontal cutting axis were specified for a guaranteed cutting accuracy of 0.1mm from one operator to another. In addition, an extended heavy duty measuring stop was added and foot operated transport rollers to facilitate the loading of heavier sheets.

Newfields Timber received a turnkey delivery, installation and training service, including removal of its existing saw to minimise disruption to its production. Daltons Wadkin invests heavily in customer support and boasts one of the largest teams of field service engineers in the UK to ensure equipment is expertly commissioned and maintained.
