More on metal forming

Investing in the latest technology

In today's high-performance environment, sheet metal folding machines are only as good as the high-tech software that drives them.

KMF's programme of continuous improvement and high investment means that the latest technology powers our metal bending and folding capacity.

It allows us to meet the most demanding metal fabrication contracts, large or small, simple or complex.

First class metal folding

Metal forming is a generic term that can include a broad range of manufacturing processes, but it mainly consists of bending metal sheets into the desired geometry.

The science behind the plasticity of metal-formed products is complex. Factors such as strain hardening, temperature control, flow stress and ductility must be factored into the metal bending and folding processes.

The engineering team at KMF is highly experienced and expert in matching customer requirements to our sheet metal folding machinery, which is available 24-hours, seven-days-a-week.

Metal forming capacity

The combination of press brake machines means KMF can offer both manual and automated services to meet the needs of almost any customer.

We can bend metal in a wide range of materials and sizes for every type of project one-off prototypes to large scale batch runs.
