TORONTO—UniTrak Corporation Limited is making a significant investment to expand the production line capabilities at its Port Hope, Ont., to be fully operational by mid-December, 2015.
UniTrak equipment is used by manufacturers to move materials in processing lines the world over, including those in the powder, food processing, and chemical industries.
“The investment we are making further advances our capability to even more effectively fulfill our customers’ needs and requirements for high-reliability conveying equipment,” says UniTrak president Bill Gorsline. “These investments will allow us to manufacture equipment with even greater speed and quality beyond what we have so far achieved.”
Key upgrades to UniTrak’s manufacturing process include the acquisition of a Trumpf TruLaser 1030 laser cutting machine and the installation of a new paint line.
The laser cutting machine will enable the high-speed production of precision cut parts and components which make up UniTrak’s TipTrak line of bucket conveyors. The new paint line will improve paint line flexibility and speed, permitting the use of a greater range of paint finishes and shorter lead times for customers.
UniTrak equipment lines include the TipTrak line of bucket conveyors, Powderflight aeromechanical conveyors, and UniFlex flexible augers. UniTrak combines a unique “customerization” process with advanced technology, such as the TipTrak rubber chain, to provide solutions that are precisely tailored for each customer application.
Material applications for UniTrak equipment include those involving powders, flakes, pellets, prills, and food ingredients.
A distinct advantage of UniTrak equipment is its durability and reliability.
Equipment is available in a wide range of construction types and configurations to fit any processing environment. Options for cleanability, explosion-proof, and dust-free operation are also available.
Recently, the company extended its TipTrak line of bucket conveyors by developing the TipTrak MDC conveyor for specialized applications. This includes applications where multiple discharge points, C-configuration, or a high-level of bucket cleanability is required.
