Canadian Timberframes (CTF) has purchased Canada’s first Hundegger K2 Industry(i) 1300 machine.

Canadian Timberframes (CTF) of Golden, B.C. is a premier design, manufacturer in the timber frame industry, has purchased Canada’s first Hundegger K2 Industry(i) 1300 machine with 6-axis robot. The largest and most advanced K2i to come to Canada, this machine will increase CTF’s timber size capacity by 500 per cent; enabling them to cut large scale engineered wood products. This machine is scheduled for installation in Fall 2022.
“This expansion and new machine is our commitment to our expanding industry and our industry partners,” says Jeff Bowes, president and owner of CTF.
“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.”
CTF is also increasing the size of their facility by 50 per cent, adding an additional 10,000 sq. ft. to accommodate the new machine and further optimize production.
The purchased CNC machine with a 6-axis robot is one of the most efficient and comprehensive solid wood processing machines for heavy timber and glulam in the mass timber industry. With over 34,000 sq. ft. of manufacturing capacity to come, this new machine will enable them to run larger timber sections (18 x 51 x 70’), handle more complex & larger scale commercial projects in both timber & mass timber, and deliver results that align with CTF’s reputation of excellence.
Timber and engineered wood products are a strong, low-carbon building alternative to concrete and steel.
Some 22 years after Canadian Timberframes brought Canada’s first Hundegger K2 machine, they are once again innovating.
“We congratulate Canadian Timberframes on the upcoming installation of the largest and most advanced K2i in Canada, and one of the largest and most advanced installations in North America,” says Hans Hundegger, founder and president of Hundegger.

“We are preparing for the future of this organization; our success has been built on quality products and services,” says Stephanie Bowes, vice president of CTF.
“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.”
Canadian Timberframes works closely with clients, architects and builders throughout North America.
