Time and Space Slashed at Powers

Powers Retail Services is known for their advanced, innovative CNC manufacturing of custom retail fixtures and shelving

But even they were wowed by the Weeke BHX 050—a compact, all-in-one machining center that drills, grooves, and routes. It’s so versatile that they’re still uncovering new ways to save time and money. One example? Instead of nesting thousands of parts, one at a time, Powers can now stack-cut them on their Holzma saw and stack route them on the BHX 050—five at a time. Perfectly. 97% faster than before. And in a fraction of the footprint. It’s the most productive machine they’ve ever purchased, according to folks at the Bolingbrook, Illinois-based company.

Powers is a full-service store fixture manufacturer that successfully combines the technology of large feedthrough production machinery latest concept in small footprint workcell systems, to achieve the short lead times, high production and custom services demanded by its list of top retail clients. The use of small-footprint cells at Powers was among the topics covered in a free webcast geared to help woodworkers improve their productivity and profitability. The webcast, “Profit with Integrated Wood Manufacturing,”took place Jan. 19 on, and is now available to view the archived version.

With some of the largest retailers in the United States as clients, Powers leverages a positive business philosophy, state-of-the-art facility and green initiatives to be a panel processing powerhouse.
