Metal punch investment for KMF Slovakia

European Sheet metal fabrication firm

European sheet metal fabrication company, KMF Precision Sheet Metal Slovakia has made a double investment in CNC fabrication technology.

The investment will allow the company to capitalise on 50% growth over the last 12 months.

KMF Precision Sheet Metal Slovakia, which is part of the KMF Group, has invested over €450.000 in a new TruPunch 3000 and TruBend 5130 from TRUMPF.

The new machines will help boost production speed, reduce the risk and significantly increase capacity.

The European sheet metal fabrication company is focussing on strategic technological investment to grow capacity for key customers based across Europe.

It plans to increase the scope for new business development that has seen turnover soar to €5.9M and the workforce to grow a further 29% to 90.

Operations Director, Radim Vaculin, commented: "The installation of a new TruBend press brake and TruPunch machine will bring significant improvements to our manufacturing facility. It will take KMF Slovakia into a new fabrication capacity scenario that it can provide to its growing customers.

We have seen significant sales success over the last 12 months. This is just the start of what we hope will be a continuous investment drive in sheet metal technology at KMF's Slovakia sheet metal fabrication facility."

The TruPunch 3000 is a universal CNC punching machine with skeleton-free processing. With 24/7 operational ability and a stroke rate of 1000 strokes per minute. The device is powerful, adaptive and hugely resource-efficient.

The TruBend 5130 is a compact and highly-productive bending machine with innovative features such as lower tool displacement and 6-axis back gauge for complete production freedom.

KMF Group Managing Director, Gareth Higgins added: "KMF Group's mission is a long-term partnership with successful OEMs. Our modern strategy places technological investment at the heart of our plans and a willingness to invest in machinery to suit customers' specific requirements. This will enhance our service to our customers and drive further growth across the Group."
