Precision Sheet Metal firm KMF has invested in two new Laser Profiling Machines which will increase cutting speeds, reduce operating costs and allow a greater range of materials to be processed.
KMF has ordered two 3030 (L95) New Generation machines. The machines are state of the art, fibre lasers from Trumpf and join a full array of high end Trumpf sheet metal processing equipment.
The new lasers are estimated to improve average run times by up to 50% and potentially result in 60%+ reductions in the average machine running cost.
The £1.2m assets have been ordered to replace two existing older machines. The existing machines comprised of an early technology fibre machine and a traditional Co2 laser, both of which have been operational in a 24/7 capacity since early 2012.
Commercial Director, Keith Nicholl, said, “Faster machines means that we can continue to offer a competitive solution to our customers at a time when resource costs are rising. As well as being faster, the machines are more comprehensive and more accurate.”
The new lasers also have more capacity to cut through heavier gauge and a larger range of sheet-based materials.
