CD (UK) have the Tools for Success at W12

CD (UK) Ltd, exclusive UK Distributors of CORIAN®, the original solid surface from DuPont™, are aiming to impress visitors to stands at both ’˜Working with WOOD' (Stand 6D500) and Working with DESIGN (Stand 6A214).

Visitors to their ’˜Working with WOOD' stand will be able to view a selection of specialist machines and tools displayed to demonstrate their ability to fully meet the needs of solid surface fabricators. Also featured will be the Machinery Division's capability in the joinery and furniture manufacturing sector ’“ notably with a comprehensive range of wood veneer processing machines.

Major machinery manufacturers represented include: ELKOM, the market leader in heating platens, thermoforming and vacuum systems, and LANGZAUNER, with precision machines for veneer cutting, hot plate pressing and veneer sanding.

On show, and being demonstrated, will be the ELKOM ’˜Multitherm' thermoforming station. This advanced machine combines pre-heating and a vacuum press to efficiently form and shape all types of solid surface materials, acrylics and thermo-plastics. And, staying with the theme of heating and cooling technology, is a display of ELKOM heating bars which can be customised to meet individual requirements. The main feature of the LANGZAUNER display will be the LZK 3-edge oscillating sander. With a 45 degree tiltable table, driven feed belt and top pressure, the LZK produces a superbly accurate finished edge to veneered or solid wood.

Making its debut at the show is an exciting new calibrating/sanding machine, specially developed for solid surface. The ’˜SolidSurfacer' has a working width of 950mm and, in a single pass, can accurately finish a 3 metre worktop in under a minute. Visitors to the CD (UK) stand will be able to see the ’˜SolidSurfacer' working, and witness how it dramatically reduces the time involved in precisely finishing solid surface.

Among the main attractions of the power tools display is a demonstration of the revolutionary SURCARE SMF-200 random orbital four-disc sanding machine, which can save up to 70% of finishing time and cost on most manually finished surfaces. Other finishing tools being demonstrated include FESTOOL and MIRKA sanders, and other top brands on display will be Bessey, Betterley, Fein, Makita, Metabo and Omnicubed.

A highlight for visitors to the stand will be a demonstration of how easily a household tray can be shaped and formed from a flat piece of Corian® - visitors can then take a tray home as a souvenir!


How to Design with Corian®

The theme of CD UK's stand in the ’˜Working with DESIGN' hall is all about designing with Corian®. On show will be interesting examples of items designed and made using Corian® and the underlying message to visitors is: ’˜It's possible for you to fabricate items like these'. There will be a kitchen island unit, complete with Corian® worktop and Corian® doors in various finishes and handle options and Complementing this will be a bench and seating, also constructed in Corian®. Also displayed will be a Corian® bath, together with examples of stylish bathroom vanities, and the new Corian® colour palette will be presented on an eye-catching spherical display.

W12 is on from 7th-10th Oct at the NEC Birmingham, for further details of the show and how to register please visit the W12 website
