Computer Numerically Controlled (CNC) punching plays a significant role in sheet metal manufacturing at KMF, delivering high accuracy, speed and competitively priced manufactured metal components and parts to customers in the UK and all over the world.
CNC punching machines can create many shapes, from simple circles or rectangles to overlapping geometrical 3D designs.
Our CNC punch and laser combination machines are capable of producing parts of the most complex geometry without the need for extra tool changes or increased set up costs.
CAD and RADAN software is network-linked to the CNC cutting machines at KMF to assist with working out the most efficient layout and processing of sheet metal to fabricate the required components.
This ensures that 'nests' of parts are used efficiently to minimise expensive material wastage and ensure fast cost-effective delivery times.
The sheet metal CNC punching department at KMF Precision Sheet Metal includes Trumpf TC sheet feeders, Trumpf TV Trulaser machines and tool sharpening facilities. Click here for a complete plant list.
Stopa storage towers used to feed our CNC punching machines, are capable of storing 90 tonnes of raw sheet metal each, ready to be processed by the Flexible Manufacturing Cell system that gives us a 60% improvement in efficiency over conventional systems.
CNC punching machines at KMF can handle an extremely broad range of metals, including CR4 (mild steel), zintec, galvanised steel, aluminium, stainless steel, copper, brass and pre-coated steel (Plastisol).
A growing number of OEMs now include outsourcing in their growth strategies in order to focus on core business activities. With nearly 50 years experience in outsourcing to blue-chip companies, KMF Group can become your perfect outsourcing partner.
CNC punching is a sheet metal fabrication process carried out by punch press machines.
CNC laser cutting at KMF achieves most exceptional cutting detail on a broad range of materials.
We design and prototype components for fabricated sheet metal or machined parts in large and small batches.
