Food industry relies on material handling equipment fabrication

Badger Sheet Metal Works produces material handling equipment of all sizes

Material handling equipment fabrication expertise plays a significant role in the operational efficiency of many industrial applications. The food industry, in particular, depends on high-quality hoppers, chutes and other material handling equipment used in daily operations.

Badger Sheet Metal Works has a long history of process piping fabrication and material handling equipment fabrication excellence. The company’s specialized stainless steel production environment minimizes exposure to carbon and other impurities, making it a perfect fit for many food industry customers.

“Our food industry customers are direct beneficiaries of the material handling equipment fabrication projects that result from our stainless steel expertise,” states Kenny Coe, director of sales at Badger Sheet Metal Works. “We are one of very few metal fabricators who have invested in a pressurized stainless steel production environment.”

Material handling equipment fabrication ranges from small parts to large systems

Badger Sheet Metal Works has systems and production space at its disposal to complete an extensive array of material handling equipment fabrication projects. Conveyor track systems and product scrapers, chutes and hoppers for measuring and weighing, and platform and bucket assemblies all are integral to human and pet food production and packaging.

Customers with operations in coastal environments often request 316 stainless because of its ability to withstand corrosion from the salt air. The higher-grade 2205 stainless is an appropriate option for companies looking for superior corrosion resistance, especially for operating temperatures below 600 degrees.

“We have very few limitations when it comes to fabrication projects, and our customers benefit from this expertise,” Coe says. “Our bread and butter for the food industry really is material handling equipment fabrication.”
