Toronto, ON, Canada - Bulk material handling solutions provider UniTrak has made a significant investment to expand its production line capabilities, including the addition of laser cutting, at its Port Hope, Ontario facility. The enhanced production process will be fully operational by mid-December 2015.

Key upgrades to the company's manufacturing process include its acquisition of a Trumpf TruLaser 1030 laser cutting machine and installation of a new paint line. The laser cutting machine will enable high-speed production of precision-cut parts and components that 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.

"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 Bill Gorsline, president of UniTrak. "These investments will allow us to manufacture equipment with even greater speed and quality beyond what we have so far achieved."

UniTrak equipment is used by manufacturers to move materials in processing lines, including those in the powder, food processing, and chemical industries. The company's equipment lines include the TipTrak line of bucket conveyors, Powderflight aeromechanical conveyors, and UniFlex flexible augers. Material applications for the company's equipment include those involving powders, flakes, pellets, prills, and food ingredients. 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.
