KMF is home to industry-leading CNC metal punching facilities that offer customers unmatchable efficiency, high speed, and competitively priced parts. Our CNC punching machines operate 24/7 and can handle a wide range of sheet metals and thicknesses, ranging from 0.5mm to 6mm and including mild steel, zintec, galvanised steel, aluminium, stainless steel, copper, brass, and pre-coated steel.
CNC punch presses can be programmed through CAD and RADAN software and network-linked to our state-of-the-art CNC punch and laser punches. It's a system that ensures the most efficient layout and processing of sheet metal to fabricate any required components.
KMF Group operates 10 metal punching and combination punch/laser machines with full automation and tower storage feed to ensure speed, accuracy and fast delivery.
CNC punching plays a significant role in sheet metal manufacturing at KMF and is often the first process in a component's manufacturing journey. It is an efficient CNC metal profiling technique that can also create metal forms such as louvres, dimples and embosses with speed, often eliminating the need for additional operations.

CNC metal punching machines at KMF include Trumpf Trumatic 6000 and Trumatic 7000 combination laser punches with a maximum working range of 3 x 1.5 metres. We also operate Trumpf 3000 and 5000 TruPunch units. Our high productivity CNC punching machine tools can be used to emboss, form, countersink, bead, contour cut and engrave, by-passing separate operations.
CNC punching tools at KMF can create many shapes, from simple circles or rectangles to overlapping geometrical 3D designs. Our CNC punch press and laser combination machines are capable of producing parts of the most complex geometry without the need for additional tool changes or increased set up costs. We deliver competitively priced manufactured metal components and parts to customers in the UK and all over the world.
The sheet metal CNC punch press department at KMF Precision Sheet Metal includes Trumpf TC sheet feeders, Trumpf TV TruLaser units and tool sharpening facilities. Efficient metal manufacturing operations minimise material wastage and provide fast and cost-effective delivery times.
The CNC punching capacity enables KMF means to meet the demands of all customers, from one-off prototype components to high-volume production runs. We use Stopa storage towers to feed our CNC punching machines. Each tower can store 90 tonnes of raw sheet metal.
Examples of sheet metal fabrications that use CNC punching services at KMF include vending machines, power distribution boards, digital signage products and aerospace components.
