Computer-controlled 5 axis CNC machining at KMF Group enables the precision manufacture of highly complex metal parts, quickly, efficiently and to the most exacting specifications.

KMF Precision Engineering can supply machined metal components in small batches or large volumes in a variety of materials including carbon/alloy steel, stainless steel, titanium, specialist steels (S80), brass, aluminium and various plastics.

The cutting tool on a 5-axis machine moves across three spatial coordinates and also rotates on two, so a metal component is machined in all directions with a single setup. 5-axis machining gives almost infinite possibilities in the shaping of parts.

The company manufactures precision machined components and assemblies to the most demanding of customer specifications, including parts for the medical, defence and aerospace industries.

Although 5-axis machining provides infinite possibilities as to the part sizes and shapes that can be processed, any machine is still only as good as its operator.

An expertly trained machinist with proven skills can make a real difference in both quality and efficiency. Thanks to an in-house training centre and apprenticeship schemes KMF has the best-trained workforce in the business

KMF Group prides itself on customer service and maintains close communication with clients throughout the production process, allowing the company to build strong, long-standing relationships with our clients.

Also, KMF is one of few UK sheet metal manufacturers to hold four BSI accreditations, clear evidence of our proficiency in delivering high-quality products conforming not only to precise customer requirement but also to the most exacting statutory and regulatory specifications.

Because KMF Precision Engineering carries out projects under one roof, the company is capable of delivering a fast, comprehensive and high-quality service.

We pride ourselves in meeting the challenging specifications and tight time schedules regularly required by our customers.

KMF also has a policy of promoting lean, cost-effective manufacturing methods at every level throughout the factory. This is nowhere more evident than in our dedicated metal machining centres.

The use of the latest 5-axis CNC machining technology, both simultaneous and fixed, gives KMF the capacity to produce the most complex components to the highest technical requirement and with exceptional finishing quality.

Investment in high capacity tool carousels, probing and dead stop fixtures means we can reduce the downtime in costly set-up procedures and keep cycle times to a minimum.
