IMA and Schelling expand with new rebuild and distribution center

leave a comment »

IMA and Schelling have opened a new rebuild and distribution center in Raleigh, North Carolina. The company employs a staff of factory trained technicians who refit Schelling single line saws and IMA edgebanders for a very important segment of the woodworking market.

According to managing director Peter Tuenker, “The market for these fundamentally sound machines is huge in North America. There is a real need for workhorse machines that have been rebuilt to provide a viable alternative for certain sectors.  We want to buy back machines any chance we get. Currently, there is a significant waiting list for these rebuilt machines. We have been aggressively expanding our team of factory trained technicians from Germany and Austria to help us meet this market need.”

With the addition of the new Rebuild and Distribution Center, IMA and Schelling now operate with over 40,000 square feet in Raleigh.

SLO MakerSpace offers tools for innovation

leave a comment »

SLO MakerSpace is a membership-based workshop where people can use machinery, learn skills and collaborate on projects.

Since opening last February, its membership has grown, propelled by a nationwide interest in building, inventing, tinkering and upcycling (converting waste materials into useful items) known as the maker movement.

At SLO MakerSpace, members have access to a wider array of tools and machinery than most could purchase, maintain and house on their own.

The facility’s current inventory includes equipment for woodworking, electronics/robotics, metalworking, pottery and fabric art. There is highly sophisticated machinery such as a computer numerical control (CNC) router that makes computer-guided cuts, 3-D printers that fabricate three-dimensional objects in plastic, and a laser cutter that cuts, engraves and etches patterns in a variety of materials.

Some tools are geared toward young makers, including an R2-D2 robot that teaches computer programming with a user-friendly drag-and-drop programming platform called Scratch.

“It’s quite remarkable that SLO at this point in time has a space like this,” said Ermina Karim, president and CEO of the San Luis Obispo Chamber of Commerce. “This is much more a trend that you see in communities much larger than ours. It really speaks to the entrepreneurial spirit of the community.”

Fostering entrepreneurship is another aim of SLO MakerSpace. Board member Rory Aronson is using the shop to prototype an invention he calls FarmBot, an agricultural machine that handles farming jobs such as planting seeds, weeding and testing soil. Several members create and sell handcrafted goods, including Sarah Bellum, who collects discarded plastic bags and then crochets them into stylish swimwear.

“It’s a great place for an entrepreneur to prototype or start a business,” Slaughter said. “At $350 per month, it’s pretty much the cheapest little office you can get in town, especially because it includes access to all our machines and tools.”
