Hoffmann Machine Company will be exhibiting once again at W14 Joinery and Furniture Manufacturing Show at the NEC in Birmingham, 5th-8th October. This biennial exhibition is the UK’s principal event where the world’s leading machine manufacturers and wood component producers meet under the same roof.

A major event, on the Hoffmann stand at this year’s show, will be the results of a competition to find the best practical example and application of the Hoffmann key in a manufactured component.

Hoffmann will be offering a spring weekend in Rome for two as a prize to the winner of the competition – the result of which will be decided at W14. Entries are invited from all Hoffmann key users, with the best 10 examples prominently displayed at W14 exhibition.

Visitors to the Hoffmann stand will be asked to judge these samples for quality and innovative application. The winner will be announced at the end of the show and will be contacted to arrange for their travel details.

A range of Hoffmann machinery and accessories will not only be displayed on the Hoffmann stand but also demonstrated to show practical applications in the manufacturing industry. The company’s technical staff will be on hand to address visitors’ questions and also to offer advice and solutions regarding jointing problems.

Numerous samples will be displayed showing the versatility of the Hoffmann jointing system. Visitors will be able to examine these samples to see how they can be applied to their own products. Some new and innovative ideas will be launched by Hoffmann at this show, introducing a new and creative jointing solution to the woodworking industry.
