Safety Speed’s New Screw Pocket Machine Anchors All-American Manufacturing Cell at AWFS Fair

Safety Speed Manufacturing will formally introduce its SPM301HD Screw Pocket Machine as part of a of a cut, bore, band and assemble manufacturing cell during the AWFS Fair, July 19-22 in Las Vegas. In addition to seeing Safety Speed’s lineup of American-made technology in action, woodworkers visiting booth #8211 can enter to win a custom wood stand-up paddle board manufactured by Shore Boards.

“The SPM30HD showcases an all-new, heavy-duty direct drive spindle motor for jobs that keep on coming,” said Tom Houska, marketing manager for Safety Speed of Ham Lake, MN. “Just like a CNC spindle, the motor is able to run continuously with little maintenance required. Also new is a more robust air drill versus a compact router drill.”

“We are excited about exhibiting at the AWFS Fair again this year,” said Shawn Larkin, sales manager of Safety Speed. “This has always been a great show for us and we’re looking forward to introducing the SPM30HD screw pocket machine. This machine is great for operations utilizing screw pocket joinery on a large scale and can deliver 200-plus holes per shift.”

Safety Speed will team up with Conquest Industries of Santa Fe Springs, CA, to make bookcases in the manufacturing cell demonstration. Panels will be cut to size on a Safety Speed 7400 vertical panel saw, bored on a Conquest 23 spindle line boring machine, edgebanded on a Safety Speed 72GP glue pot edgebander, and assembled using the SPM30HD screw pocket machine.

Demonstrations of the manufacturing cell are planned for 11 a.m., 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. Wednesday-Friday and 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. on Saturday of the show. Houska said the bookcases will be donated to a local charity.

The manufacturing cell will anchor Safety Speed’s booth, which will also include widebelt sanders and the company’s flagship vertical panel saws and panel routers.

Tim Shore, owner of Shore Boards of Ramsey, MN, will be on hand to talk about his new enterprise making hollow-core stand-up paddle boards. Shore recently installed a Safety Speed widebelt sander, greatly boosting paddle board production. “Tim will be more than happy to discuss how he makes his boards and how investing in one of our widebelt sanders has benefitted him,” Larkin said. “Visitors to our booth can enter to win a hand-crafted stand-up paddle board that we’ll display in our booth. The value of this give-away is $2,500!”shoreboard
