Large machining unlocks larger opportunities

The race to win tomorrow’s business is on, and competition is fierce. From machine capacity and operator productivity, to optimising every inch of floor space, rival companies are seeking to win work from each other however they can.

To stand out in an increasing crowd, you need to adapt and innovate.

And how do you do that? You choose Large Prismatic Machining (LPM).

By choosing LPM, you aren’t just unlocking larger opportunities for your business; you’re also future-proofing your production line. 

And best of all, when you choose LPM, you also choose us. Kingsbury takes a local, consultative approach to our machines – working with you from enquiry, through the installation, to process optimisation and beyond. 

It’s time to step from the shadows and capitalise whilst your competition fights amongst themselves.

We’re ready, are you?



We’ll help you win tomorrow’s business today.

Discover the range

Everything about LPM machining is large. Large machine size, large machine cost, large machine capacity.

Whilst initially this may seem daunting, you can be confident in Kingsbury. We’re by your side throughout and will support you on your journey.

We offer our LPM customers reduced operating costs today, so you can start delivering a more competitive process for your customers tomorrow.

Why? Because the more competitive your process is, the simpler it will be to capture additional work later down the line.

And with LPM’s increased capacity and efficiency, you’ll be able to facilitate those future opportunities.

Overcome machining obstacles and unleash
new efficiencies.

We know one of the most significant obstacles businesses face is machine utilisation. It’s critical to operate a fully utilised machine for your margin, ROI and profitability.

LPM machines don’t just open the door for projects that’ll have you running at full capacity; they also unleash previously shrouded efficiencies.

By choosing LPM, you’ll benefit from:

  • Increased machine utilisation
  • Increased parts produced per hour/day
  • Increased productivity
  • Increased tool life
  • Reduced operator intervention 
  • Reduced consumable costs
  • Reduced rework and scrap
  • A repeatable, consistent production process
  • A future-proofed machining solution for your business

Doing things differently.

Most LPM suppliers expect big deposits and expectations upfront. Kingbury don’t.
We assist and support you throughout to ensure a smoother, fairer investment and help you and your team maximise the returns on your capital.

Shared responsibility

We share the burden of the investment process. We become your contractual supplier, delivering the machine and process from the UK. A strong display of our commitment and further safeguarding your investment.

Flexible payment plans

Spread the cost over a more manageable timeframe, aiming to maintain a neutral cashflow with clearly defined milestones throughout your project’s progress.

Operational & technical setup

We plan and manage your site to ensure your premises have all the technical and practical capabilities to run an LPM effectively and compliantly.

Team training

In the months before your machine arrives, we’ll ensure your key personnel are fully trained, so there are zero production delays once it’s installed.

See it for yourself.

Many leading industries trust Kingsbury and our carefully curated portfolio of quality German LPM machines – from aerospace to defence, automotive to power generation.

Take the Zimmermann FZ42-100 DUO, installed at Magellan Aerospace for example. Here it is manufacturing wing spar components for single-aisle Airbus planes. The machine effectively doubles output by machining two components in perfect harmony.
