Sheet metal fabricator Concept Metal Products (Middleton, England) has invested in a third Kimla laser cutting machine to boost its 10 m metal cutting offerings. Having already purchased a 4 kW 10 × 2 m and a 6 kW 4 × 2 m Kimla fiber laser, the company invested in the third machine to increase its metal cutting capabilities. The 6 kW 10 × 2 m machine will be installed in the factory by MBA Engineering (Wetherby, England) later in 2020.
As one of the only companies in the North West of the UK to cut and bend up to 10 m of metal, Concept Metal specializes in fabricating larger items for a range of different industries, including highways, rail, nuclear, and waste management.
“Being able to provide a larger scale of laser cutting capabilities to our customers and a range of industries is a huge benefit to us,” says Dean Barnard, general manager at Concept Metal Products. “It’s great to be able to offer these services with the high level of efficiency and precision that comes hand-in-hand when working with Kimla machines. As this is our third laser cutting machine investment, we needed a machine able to manufacture long parts, as this is something only we can offer in the North West. Combined with our LVD tandem press, capable of forming parts up to 9000 mm long with first bend depth up to 605 mm, the additional Kimla laser cutter will assist in boosting this area of the business.”
MBA Engineering specializes in supplying machinery and consumables for metal fabrication, and is the exclusive partner of Kimla fiber laser systems in the UK.
