Gasket plates - cutting out

The Kimla company produces (probably as the only one in the world) machines for cutting out the most demanding sealing materials .
These cutters are equipped with high-class active oscillating heads with power many times exceeding the solutions available on the market.
It is not a problem to cut plastic sheets, graphite plates reinforced with mesh and steel sheets (including multi-layer sheets), it perfectly cuts rubber, leather, cork and other materials that are suitable for knife cutting.

The most powerful cutting headsKimla oscillators are driven by two AC servo drives. One is for setting the knife angle, the other is for generating the oscillation. Central lubrication ensures long life of the head and its operating costs can be reduced to a minimum.

The material is attached to the table by means of a vacuum, ensuring quick and ergonomic fixing of the cut material.

The head can handle both carbide and HSS knives – depending on the properties of the material and its thickness. Monolithic carbide knives allow, for example, to cut a hole with a diameter of 8mm in a 20mm thick rubber.

The industrial version of the cutting machine with an oscillating head can also be delivered with an additional milling head, which will enable the cutting of brittle materials that cannot be cut with a knife.

The Kimla company also produces Waterjet machines, which are devices comparable to the products of the world’s leading companies, while maintaining a much more attractive price.
Waterjet Kimla cutters are equipped with pumps and heads of the renowned American company Accustream, which have the lowest operating costs. The cost of spare parts for the pump is 1.25USD / h, the cost of parts for the head is 1.75USD / h.

Another undeniable advantage is the fact that the producer is a Polish company. Contrary to companies offering devices of foreign producers, who do not have a permanent competent service in Poland, the Kimla company, by designing, constructing, producing and servicing its devices, ensures the highest competences in the field of maintenance and servicing of its machines. This gives you immediate access to service, parts, and the knowledge you need to solve problems that arise during operation.

Attempts to produce Waterjet machines are now being made by many Far East companies. Unfortunately, as is most often the case, the quality and capabilities of these devices differ significantly from customer expectations. The main problem is the widespread tendency to copy other devices considered to be exemplary. Unfortunately, the lack of experience and access to technology often produces deplorable results. Pump components are made of materials with properties far different from the desired ones. Cracked cylinders, leaks in many places, leaky valves, but most of all much lower service life of seals, which multiplies operating costs.
Another serious problem is the software and the control system. In Waterjet machines, dynamic speed control is extremely important, making the feed speed dependent on the shape of the tool path. Machines without this function must move at a speed limited to that at which the most complex shapes will be correctly cut. This results in a multiple reduction in efficiency (even ten times), which practically disqualifies such devices from being able to compete on the demanding market.

It is worth emphasizing that Kimla machines work in over 500 Polish companies and several dozen abroad (including the demanding American market). Currently, the Kimla company produces machines on an industrial scale (about 25 machines are produced simultaneously in the assembly halls), and the production capacity reaches 1 machine per 3 days.

Therefore, we would like to invite you to the presentation of our machines. There are at least a dozen devices for various applications and with different equipment to view.
We are convinced that after visiting our company, you will make a decision to purchase Kimla machines.
