  • Large working envelope
  • Amada’s ‘Instant Reactive Beam’ for consistent accuracy
  • Stop – Start technology for reduced power consumption
  • Innovative user friendly touch screen control

Specially developed and manufactured in Europe for the European market our press brake has a beam length of 3000mm and a press force of 100 tonnes.

  • New drive system with significantly lower energy requirements compared toconventional systems
  • AMADA’s proven instant reactive beam provides consistent bend angles
  • Reliability and precision combined with lower service and maintenance requirements
  • Extensive range of accessories for even more flexibility

CNC Guillotining


With adjustable rake angle and blade gap, MVS-C  shears lets us cut varied material thicknesses, permit narrow strips to be sheared with minimal
distortion, and reduce burrs.

The cutting beam is driven by double-acting, pull-down, hydraulic cylinders, and has a control panel mounted on the swivel arm.
Shears have 3 pairs of roller guides for control of cutting beam, while each blade has 4 cutting edges and can be turned 3 times before grinding.

Ball transfer system for easier material processing Large throat gap for ‘Overlap’ cutting.

Powder Coating

From a single item through to a large production run, our powder coating facilities can handle items of almost any size.
Using the very best materials available, we provide a high quality powder coating service to meet your requirements.

Where necessary, we are also able to provide chemical pre-treatments, such
as phosphate coating, to complement our powder coating service.

Powder coating is a type of dry coating, which is applied as a free-flowing, dry powder. The main difference between a conventional liquid paint and a powder coating is that the powder coating does not require a solvent to keep the binder and filler parts in a liquid suspension form.

The coating is typically applied electrostatically and is then cured under heat to allow it to flow and form a “skin.” The powder may be a thermoplastic or a thermoset polymer. It is usually used to create a hard finish that is tougher than conventional paint.
Powder coating is mainly used for coating of metals, such as “white goods”, aluminium extrusions, and vehicle parts.

Flat Pack Duct Supply

Here at KMS Hardrange we have the machinery and technology to supply Flat Pack Ducting to your specifications at high quality and at a fair cost.

Our Laser  is a CAD / CAM system specially designed to automate the programming of sheet metal cutting machines, The laser cutting technology we use is extremely accurate with management of reduced lead-ins, lead-in with runback, customised piercing, sprintlaser, microjoints, microwelds, head management, contour attributes, manual and automatic extractions, this ensures that your product is produced to a very high standard in a time frame to suit your business needs.

Technical Specifications

  • All the options of our lasers are fully integrated in a single program, so designing a part, importing, nesting, generating the cut, generating the CNC, looking at the sheet metal store is with our experience a simple process leading to a first class product being produced every time.
  • Large library of parametric parts.

Duct Manufacturing

Our duct manufacturing is second to none it perfectly combines machine technology with our experience making sure our customers requirements are met to the highest standards every time.

We are able to produce a full  library of parametric figures which also follow
DIN regulations (square to round, cones, cylinders, boiler making figures, tube
intersections, etc.) to cover most duct shapes available.

  • 2D Design. Our software integrates a CAD 2D module to design any part, as well as any geometric modification of the contours. The flat pattern can then be cut automatically.
  • Weight and cost estimates  calculates weight, cutting perimeter and material costs.
