About Our Machines

Manufacturing methodology has changed over the years and continues to change. There are many different methods from mass production, Five “S” Workplace Organization, Just-In-Time, Kanban, or Lean; just to name a few. Whatever method is used, at the heart of all this is the people that do the work, the quality of the raw materials and the machines used to produce the product. At Sherwood Shelving™ our team is committed to providing the best service and attention to detail throughout the entire manufacturing process. They are highly trained and skilled with a desire to do their best at all times.

Sherwood Shelving™ knows that you can have the right people but without using high quality raw material and having the right machines, or “tools” to do the job, you will not get the results. For this reason considerable investment has been made to make sure we use nothing but the best available raw material and use the best machinery possible. We not only have the right machines but redundancy so if one of our machines requires repair we have a backup machine…so orders are filled on time when you need them!

All of our machines are European made from such areas as Germany, Italy and Austria. The European CNC technology is touted as the most superior in the world in the woodworking industry. With machines like the IMA Novimat, Biesse Skipper and Schelling fh6, as our “flag ship” machines, we are ready to tackle any job. Give us a call today to see how we can help you meet all your product needs.


A Schelling fh6 panel saw is the best available in the marketplace. Manufactured in the heart of Europe, between Lake Constance and the Alps, the solid construction ensures the highest degree of precision available. With 27 kW of power, the fh6 offers productive solutions for industrial tasks. The automation ensures optimum processing from the material feed to the finished component.

Whether particle board, medium-density fibre board, oriented strand board, high-density fibre board or high pressure laminate panels or modern wooden materials, the fh6 stands for smooth production. Ergonomic, safe, precise and quick.


Making sure Sherwood Shelving™ utilizes the proper equipment for our manufacturing needs is not an easy decision. When hundreds of thousands of dollars are being spent for one machine you need to make sure it’s the right one for the job!

After literally years of research and investigation – looking at numerous equipment manufacturers – Sherwood Shelving™ purchased the IMA Novimat edge bander. The IMA series of Novimat Concept machines are equipped with a comprehensive system toolkit to meet our customer-specific requirements:

  • High-quality edge banding and performance through servo-technology

  • Absolute precision and guaranteed stability

With the use of CNC technology, this machine ensures high, long-term quality and precision.


Skipper 100 is the ideal machine for Sherwood Shelving that has chosen to dedicate it for specific series production. The machine reaches its highest potential when integrated in a system with automatic up and down loading, thereby emphasizing practicality and speed.

Skipper 100 is a flexible boring center that uses an innovative panel handling system. The tools are fixed, allowing the panels to move on an air floatation table in an easy and fast way. In this way panels with different dimensions can be machined without interruption, the machine can work the panel from above and below at the same time and can produce two identical or mirrored panels per cycle with no difficulty. The Skipper 100 can also machine porous materials since the pieces are blocked with grippers directly managed by the numerical control. It can even process small pieces and carry out “through” machining.
