Kadant Carmanah offers not only the highest quality machinery, but also the services and expertise to maintain it. Settling for nothing less than perfection.
With more than 90 years serving local industry, Kadant Carmanah Design (and its predecessor companies) has developed considerable skill in the areas of machining and fabrication. Many of our shop personnel have decades of experience in the manufacture and assembly of extremely sophisticated and precision equipment for a variety of industries.
The company's machining department settles for nothing less than perfection. The company's capital equipment, including Ring and Disc Stranders and Chippers supplied to the Engineered Wood and Pulp & Paper industries, require precision manufacturing - there can be no compromise. As a result, the company's skill and ability is considerable and benefits all our customers. Kadant Carmanah's machining capability includes vertical and horizontal boring mills.
Our fabrication department houses a 20 ton crane, a 10,000 pound capacity welding positioner, a 200 ton press, and a 11’x12’x7’ calibrated stress relieving oven to address the needs of our customers for large-scale fabrication requirements. In our assembly department, we have a 300 ton horizontal press, and a crane capacity of 35 tons to allow straightforward handling of large projects.

Other equipment includes conventional electric welding machines, gas welding, CO2 welding, wire welding, submerged-arc and semi-automatic, and Tig welding.
“We (CP&P) had a major incident with a critical machine on our production line. To change it out would take 48 hours. Instead, we decided to replace the failed components on site, to reduce the downtime by half. This was a tough decision to make as there is a higher risk involved with an insitu repair. Kadant Carmanah's immediate response allowed the work to be completed as quickly as possible because at no time were we held up waiting for parts. Kadant Carmanah's input with respect to assembly details and procedure was also key to our success. Repairs were completed in just 18 hours versus 24, cutting the downtime by almost 60%.”
