KMF Precision Engineering combines high-quality subcontract CNC turning services with an impressive capacity and an unrivalled level of customer service.

Based in Staffordshire and close to motorway networks, KMF's modern subcontract metal machining facility is purpose-built to provide the most reliable and efficient precision CNC machining operations and product delivery service in the UK.

An extensive range of CNC turning centres gives KMF the edge in the production of high precision parts ranging in diameters of 4mm to 70mm for bar fed components and up to 300mm for billeted components.

The high-speed CNC turning lathes at KMF are capable of managing and optimising a wide array of precision engineering operations thus facilitating high production numbers and saving valuable production time.

Our range of CNC turning lathes, from single spindle chucking lathes to multi-spindle barfed machines, allows the company to provide extremely cost-effective solutions that meet and often exceed the most demanding customer requirements.

CNC turned components in a single cycle

The use of a variety of 3 axis and 4 axis CNC turning lathes means KMF can produce multiple mill turn parts in a single operation. Complex milled components, typically requiring a second function on a milling machine, can be created on the Y-axis of Mazak lathes. The addition of a sub spindle means complex parts can be machined front and back, allowing shifts and billet work to be completed in one cycle.

The substantial investment in state-of-the-art precision CNC turning machines and market leading CAM software endows KMF with an impressive CNC turning capacity and the ability to undertake significant batch work or individual one-off projects.

Advanced CNC technologies mean we can create metal components ranging from highly sophisticated prototypes to simple, functional, end-use parts in a wide range a plastic and metal materials.

KMF clients vary from blue-chip companies in the automotive, food, medical and defence industries to small firms requiring short batch runs or individual one-off projects. Over many years our CNC machining and sheet metal manufacturing facility has built an enviable reputation for precision sheet metal fabrication and subcontract precision CNC turning services.

Quality accreditations and a highly skilled workforce

And if customers also require component assembly, we have the necessary clean areas, skills and processes to deliver consistent results, from simple Heli-coil insertion to fully assembled turnkey operations.

Quality comes first at KMF, and the group not only operates within ISO 9001:2015 requirements but is AS 9100 Aerospace accredited for metal fabrication and assembly — demonstrating our ability to consistently deliver high-quality products that conform precisely to customer specifications and all applicable regulatory requirements.

CNC turning is a highly skilled precision engineering process that requires the latest computer technology and highly skilled operators. KMF has its own in-house training and apprenticeship programmes to ensure the company's workforce skills that are second to none.

We pride ourselves too on excellent customer service and close communication with clients throughout the production process. This philosophy has helped the company build strong, long-standing relationships with clients and the ability to consistently add value to the supply chain of ambitious OEMs.
