In House Design

From concept design, through to full system & final manufacturing design and purchasing the whole process is carried out in house under the supervision of experienced long serving staff with over 20 years experience in the business. KME use the latest in 3D designing. Upon completion of the design these drawings are issued within the same premises to the production manager who overseas the manufacture of the item / machinery. Where applicable the machinery would be tested in house before delivery and installation to the customer.


After design and procurement the main raw material are ordered and when delivered the steel is cut and the profiles / components are fabricated to create the components of the system which includes the baling machine structure, support platforms and frames, support legs for the platforms and conveyors etc. Once complete they go on for fitting / painting.

Machine Shop

The items required for the installation which need machining are processed though the machines shop. The processes required will depend on the item and would typically require the following machinery CNC lathe, CNC machining centre, Manual lathe, manual milling machine, surface grinder etc. The items that are typically processes are the conveyor rollers, hydraulic cylinders, chain drive, conveyor carrier rollers, tying device for baling machinery etc.

Plasma Cutting

 Newly installed CNC computer controlled high definition Plasma cutting unit to further improve our machine quality and reduce lead time.

Hydraulic Systems

The hydraulic systems required for the baling equipment, walking floors etc. are designed in house and manufactured to suit the requirements of the machinery. The pressure and speed of the system required determines the design and size of each system and typically ranges from small systems with a drive size of 0.55kw up to 45kw for the larger baling machinery.

Sheet Metal Department

The sheet metal components required for the installation including guards, hoppers, chutes etc. are manufactured in house using some of the following equipment – CNC guillotine, hydraulic folding unit, spot welding unit, rollers, benders etc. The delivery / timescales and quality can be controlled to ensure a high quality end produce on time.

Electrical design and manufacture

The electrical control systems are designed, Manufactured and fitted to the machinery all as an in house process. Once fitted / installed on the machine the system is tested for operation and safety prior to delivery to the client. The same electrical engineers who have built the systems would attend site to oversee the installation and commissioning.

Fitting and Final testing

Once all the components required have been made from the above operation they are finally assembled including the hydraulics and electrical components. Once finished and painted they are tested prior to delivery and installation.

Service and Installation

The Installation of the system is carried out by our own experienced staff which makes for an efficient safe install. The quality from the design through manufacture is also passed through the installation stage to ensure a high quality system on time and on budget.
