CNC machining & precision engineering

KMF is an innovative and reliable CNC machining and sheet metal fabrication company. We excel in the manufacture of high-quality machined components from one-off prototypes and small batches to large volume machining and milling in a variety of materials.

KMF Group's multi-axis CNC machining and precision engineering services are delivered from a purpose-built 43,000 sq ft production facility in Staffordshire, UK. KMF Precision Engineering carries out entire projects under one roof to provide a fast, comprehensive and cost-effective CNC machining and assembly service.

Our impressive array of equipment – including simultaneous and fixed 5-axis technology, sliding head, multi-axial milling and turning machines, precision tapping centres and a highly equipped metrology department – serves a single purpose: ensuring the highest precision and quality of the production of machined components.

In addition, our automated Mazak Palletech systems have the flexibility required for creating shorter cycle times, reducing in-process inventory and simultaneously producing multiple parts over a single shift. We can work on complex production processes and cut investment and tooling costs, allowing clients to focus on core competencies and receive a greater return on their outsourcing investment.

Sliding head machining

Sliding Head Machining

Multi-tasking sliding head machining centres allow for both turning and multi-axial milling in the main and sub spindle. All operations of small, complex, high precision turned parts can be completed from raw material to finished part, in one cycle. KMF can produce components from 2mm to 32mm through 3m bar feeds.

horizontal machining

Horizontal Machining

KMF is one of the leading suppliers of multi-pallet machined components. With a Mazak HCN 5000-111, in-house tooling and fixturing directly linked to the scheduling system, we can synchronise the running of 12 pallets allowing a suite of parts to be run off in one visit. With a fully programmable automation line, our machines run day and night with the benefit of a 120-tool carousel and probe checking capabilities.
