Kerf shines at MACH 2018

The new floor-plan at MACH 2018 reaped rewards for Rochdale-based Kerf Developments.

The plasma, waterjet and oxy-fuel cutting manufacturer yielded a greater number of sales leads from a more diverse client base than at previous MACH exhibitions.

MACH 2018 was the launch-pad event for the new Plasmaster HD (High Definition) and the PythonX robotic plasma structural steel fabrication system and both machines along with the established RUR and RUM machines were hugely successful among visitors.

Comments Kerf Developments sales director Craig Walsh: “The new Plasmaster 3015 was on show at MACH and this machine really excited visitors with its cut-quality and flexibility at such an affordable price-point. The Plasmaster was on-show with the Lincoln Electric Flexcut 125 and the 200HD high-definition plasma unit with example test pieces to highlight the cut-quality and precision available at such an affordable price.

“The cut-quality of the machine astounded stand visitors and as a result we sold two Plasmaster machines with the 200HD plasma unit at MACH to a sheet metal company and another to a fabrication business. However, we also had toolmakers and subcontractors showing interest. These inquisitive and forward thinking manufacturers were interested in how they can rapidly cut material to near net shape to significantly reduce downstream cycle times such as rough machining times on machine tools.

“Overall, MACH 2018 was hugely successful for Kerf and if we could, we’d do MACH every year. The comments on the technology and cut samples that we had on show were very complimentary; MACH was most definitely a major success for Kerf.”
