KMF offers a full range of metal painting and finishing processes including powder coating, wet painting, laser marking, Tampo printing, and silk-screening. The ability to carry out these activities in-house ensures that customer deliveries are not compromised by subcontract operations.

Powder Coating

Powder coating is an essential part of KMF's complete manufacturing solution. Capacity is provided through a fully automated paint plant, consisting of; in-line pre-treatment, drying oven, three powder coating booths (linked by two separate conveyor systems) and two stoving ovens.

KMF's powder coating facility offers rapid throughput of various types of components while providing the capability to apply a broad range of powder coating solutions and to change colours in under ten minutes. Recent investment in paint recycling technology also ensures this in-house process is as cost-effective as possible.

  • 7 x ITW Gema manual powder coating guns
  • 12 x ITW Gema automated reciprocator arms
  • 3 x ITW Gema fast colour change powder centres
  • 2 x Powder reclamation facilities
  • 1 x Nordson booth

Wet Metal Painting

With a wet metal paint facility, incorporating a 3.5m wide x 3m deep x 2.6m high wet extraction spray booth and box oven, KMF has the capability to paint metal components using the latest wet spray technology.

Laser Marking

Our Trumpf Vectormark Workstation 1200 machine complements the traditional marking and printing processes offered by KMF. The ability to manage specific serial numbers benefits many of our customers and with short set-up times and 100% repeatability, the laser marker presents significant advantages.

Silk Screening

KMF has a dedicated silk-screening department that offers a diverse range of solutions to product marking. Our design department can produce intricate artwork to exact customer requirements and our expertise in jigs and fixture design ensures that products with even the most complex of geometries can be printed to the highest standard.

Tampo Printing

With two Kent Kipp ISO machines, KMF can offer pad printing as an alternative to our silk screening process. Suitable for high-volume products, this technology ensures component quality is consistently achievable. KMF has recently invested in a new Entrance 90 Tampo print machine. This new tool-free technology will allow product diversity and effortless printing on various sized components.

An anodising service is also available.
