With large parts machining, every manufacturing challenge is heightened: large machine sizes, large machine costs, large capacities, and huge components.

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

And with increased capacity and efficiency, you’ll can capitalise on 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.

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

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 large part machine 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

Large machines take time to manufacture, install and get into production. That means managing your cash flow is an important consideration. With a degree of flexibility internally, combined with aiming to maintain a neutral cashflow against clearly defined milestones throughout your project’s progress, we take a proactive approach to limiting your cashflow exposure.

Operational & technical setup

We plan and manage your site to ensure your premises have all the technical and practical capabilities to run a large machine 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 large German CNC 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.
