More on horizontal machining

Investment in horizontal machines

Investment in Mazak HCN 5000-111 horizontal machines and the latest CNC software has helped KMF Precision Engineering grow into one of the leading suppliers of multi-pallet machined components.

The world-class HCN-5000 horizontal machining tools combine advanced technology and high performance to achieve maximum output.

The large work envelope and pallet size, as well as a fast rapid traverse speed and rigid, reliable spindle, make this one of the most versatile machines on the market.

Fast and efficient machining

The HCN-5000 allows skilled and experienced operational staff at KMF to match spindle performance to specific machining requirements.

It results in the fast, efficient and versatile machining of a wide variety of materials, from steels to nonferrous metals.

Scheduling system for quick delivery

The addition of in-house tooling and fixturing, linked directly to a scheduling system, means that KMF can synchronise the running of 12 pallets with the ability to run off a suite of parts in a single visit.

Rigorous attention to precision makes KMF the first choice for many aerospace, defence and medical companies.
