Andy Barr, director of Barrnon, says: “I’d heard about the speed and efficiency of Kimla machines and went to see them for myself at MBA Engineering. After witnessing it first hand, we decided to purchase a 1530 Powercut Linear fibre laser to share the source with our robotic welder. We needed a truly bespoke machine to be fitted around the source, and MBA Engineering was able to deliver this.

“We’ve been very impressed with the machine so far, and the additional support we have received since the installation provides great peace of mind,” he adds.

MBA Engineering also transported and installed the machine, liaising directly with IPG Photonics during the process, and working with the team onsite.

Bradley McBain, managing director of MBA Engineering, says: “Providing a machine without a source is a very unique project, but the flexibility of the Kimla machines enables us to provide a completely bespoke service to meet a manufacturer’s requirements. As well as delivering on this project from the beginning, we will also be offering ongoing support."
