Kerf Developments was founded in 2002. In the early days the focus was on helping customers who had been struggling to get service and support for their cutting machines.
Those early days repairing a wide range of machines gave the Kerf team a great insight into many of the products in the market that were reliable and provided the quality that customers were looking for.
To this day Kerf Developments remains privately owned and completely independent. This independence brings significant benefits for our customer. We are free to choose the products and suppliers that we believe provide the quality, reliability and service that our customers are looking for when they invest in a turnkey cutting machine package.
At Kerf we believe that we offer best in class products across our product range of oxy-fuel, plasma cutting and waterjet cutting technology. We then back installations up with the highest levels of post-sales support and service.
Should your expectations be beyond the capabilities of the equipment we will advise accordingly. Kerfs reputation for providing high quality turnkey solutions means a great deal more to us than the sale of a one off machine.
When it comes to an excellent cutting method that has been used for decades and shows no sign of being any less popular today, look for OXY-FUEL cutting machines.
For the best quality and the most precise cuts, OXY-FUEL profile cutting machines are certainly an excellent option to explore. At Kerf, your first choice for CNC cutting machine manufacturer, we can provide a wide range of different OXY-FUEL cutting machine options. Oxy-fuel cutting is a method that has been around for more than a century, dating back to 1907. However, it is still widely used today and is a critical component and technology in many sectors.
To cut metals, oxy-fuel cutting uses a mix of fuel gases and oxygen. A number of fuels may be used, with acetylene being the most popular. Speak to Kerf about our profile cutting machines to find out more.
Choose from our rapid selection of high-definition plasma cutting machines, for high quality components. Process machines for cutting mild steel from 1mm to 50mm thickness.
If you’re looking for improved cutting speed with an eco-friendly touch, the waterjet cutting machines from Kerf, your chosen CNC cutting machine manufacturer, are the right option for you.
Not only can this cutting method get through almost any material you ask it to, but it leaves you with little to no waste, and it is an extremely accurate profile cutting method. When it comes to choosing a cutting system that will offer you everything you need, waterjet cutting ticks all the boxes.
Waterjet cutting employs an abrasive grit carried by an ultra-high pressure stream of water. The abrasive grit cuts using a mechanical sawing motion and results in a smooth, precision cut surface created at high speed.
Waterjet is the most adaptable method since it can cut nearly any material; even carbon steel is no match for it. Materials that are extremely fragile, such as tempered glass and certain ceramics, are among the limitations, however. Waterjet cutting is an extremely accurate procedure. It features a tiny kerf width, which allows for the cutting of delicate curves and the production of high tolerance components.
When it comes to cutting, our plasma cutting machines are exceptional. Plasma cutters use plasma to cut metals like steel and aluminium.
Plasma cutters pass an electrical arc through gas (often compressed air), which converts into a plasma arc that is used to cut through the metal. The interaction of gases, high speeds, and a concentrated region of pressure results in electrically conductive ionised gas, commonly known as plasma. This technique is used on metals that cannot be cut with flame cutting equipment.
Compared to laser profile cutting which utilises fiber lasers and in which the laser beam does the heavy duty work for you, the plasma CNC machine is perhaps less accurate, but it is faster and can cut through heavier materials. That said, the fiber laser cutting machine certainly has as much a place in construction as the plasma cutting machine does, so don’t hesitate to ask us if you need one or both – or any other – cutting machine. We can help you no matter what cutting machine requirements you might have.
