Concept Metal boosts production with second, revolutionary laser cutting machine
December 2017 – Sheet metal fabrication specialists, Concept Metal Products Ltd, has invested in a second, revolutionary Kimla fibre laser system from leading supplier of laser cutting and metal fabrication equipment, MBA Engineering, after experiencing substantial increases in production from its first machine.
After installing a bespoke, 10m x 2m Kimla Powercut 4kW Fibre Laser in early 2017, Concept Metal Products was so impressed not only with the speed and precision of the machine, but also the resulting cost savings, that it has now called upon MBA Engineering to provide a second system.
To boost the company’s fabrication capabilities, Concept Metal has invested in a Kimla Powercut LF2040 6kW, which MBA Engineering – the exclusive distributor of Kimla fibre laser cutting equipment in the UK – installed and set up.
Thanks to the use of revolutionary technology, Kimla machines can provide substantial advantages in terms of performance, efficiency and cost when compared to other laser systems.
Kimla machines are some of the most efficient fibre laser systems on the market. They’re up to 50% faster than competitor models, are smaller than other systems – meaning valuable factory floor space is saved and costs per square metre are reduced – and are more accurate, cutting to a 0.03mm accuracy.
Speaking about the new installation, Dean Barnard, general manager at Concept Metal Products, said: “After having our original Kimla system installed, we were amazed by the performance of the machine. The efficiency and precision of the equipment is something we haven’t experience before with competitor models, while the cost savings have been far more significant than we anticipated.
“Following the success of this first machine, the obvious choice for us was to install a second system to further enhance our capacity and production capabilities. On top of the machine, the service we’ve received from MBA Engineering has been outstanding. The engineers are on hand 24/7 to assist with any queries we’ve had – they’ve very much felt like a part of the Concept Metal Products team.”
All parts and consumables for the Kimla fibre laser machines are manufactured in-house, resulting in lower repair costs for customers. In addition, the Kimla team can repair 85% of problems remotely, resulting in faster repair and reduced monetary losses.
Bradley McBain, managing director at MBA Engineering, said: “We pride ourselves on delivering advanced, cost-effective metal fabrication solutions. Kimla is one of the most innovative laser system manufacturers out there – the team combines state-of-the-art technology with outstanding customer service, an ethos that we echo.
“We pride ourselves on positioning our customers at the heart of our business and strive to enable companies to perform to the best of their ability, something that we have demonstrated with Concept Metal Products.”
