Canadian Timberframes (CTF), a manufacturer in the timber frame industry, has purchased a Hundegger K2 Industry(i) 1300 machine, which will reportedly increase CTF’s timber size capacity by 500 per cent; enabling them to cut large scale engineered wood products.
“This expansion and new machine is our commitment to our expanding industry and our industry partners. Combining both the most advanced K2i 1300 with an in-sequence 6-axis robot, this new machine allows us to meet the growing requirements of the mass timber industry, while simultaneously increasing our capacity to produce authentic timber frame products,” says Jeff Bowes, president and owner of CTF.
This announcement is accompanied by the news that CTF is increasing the size of their facility by 50 per cent, adding an additional 10,000 sq. ft. to their facility, to accommodate this machine and further optimize production. This machine is scheduled for installation in the fall of this year.
“We are preparing for the future of this organization; our success has been built on quality products and services. This investment back into the company is not only for our clients but our employees. This investment allows CTF to remain competitive, strengthening our market position and offering world class Timber Frame products, while growing within the mass timber and tall wood construction industry,” says Stephanie Bowes, vice president of CTF.
The purchased CNC machine will enable them to run larger timber sections (18 x 51 x 70’), handle more complex & larger scale commercial projects in both timber and mass timber, and deliver results that align with CTF’s reputation.
