Industry Update is proud to announce that Kyal Machine Tools Ltd has been selected as our Machine Tools Company of the Month.
Kyal Machine Tools is one of the UK’s leading machine tools vendors, offering new machinery and the servicing and support of these machines across the country. Established in 1985, Kyal was bought by Simon and Hilary Pollard in 2006 with the aim of taking the company’s existing product lines and expanding them.
Over the last few years, Kyal has continued to add to its portfolio and now represents WFL Millturn Technologies from Austria, Weiler from Germany, Willemin-Macodel from Switzerland, Hembrug from Holland, and as of this year, Mitsui Seiki from Japan. The technical excellence provided by these suppliers combined with Kyal’s in-house expertise and dedicated customer support means the company is guaranteed to supply the desired production solution, meeting and exceeding customers’ needs.
Indeed, Kyal is clearly committed to only representing the very best machine tools in their classes, providing application orientated, high value solutions for machining critical components in industries such as aerospace, oil & gas, energy, automotive, medical, and other high precision sectors.
More importantly, Kyal does far more than just supply the products. It offers a complete support system for each tool, collaborating with suppliers from the very beginning. If a potential customer has a component drawing, this information is sent to the equipment manufacturer to create a detailed proposal that is the best fit for the customer and their parts.
Once an order is taken, Kyal is fully responsible for commissioning the project, including service, spare parts and the warranty that covers the installation and machine. Kyal can also offer spare parts within 24 hours along with sending an engineer to the customer’s site for repair, servicing or installation.
What’s more, 90% of the machines Kyal installs are fitted with a tele-diagnostics system, which allows engineers to examine the machine remotely.
This means parts can be shipped after a phone call with the engineer or operator, so spares are ordered and sent directly to the customer on the same day for an early morning next day delivery.
“The majority of our products are niche products,” explained Simon Pollard, Managing Director. “We supply production solutions rather than just a machine tool. This means we offer the machine fully equipped to produce a particular type or range of components.
“One of our product lines, WFL Millturn Technologies, specialises in ‘one hit machining’, which eliminates the need to move the component through multiple operations around the factory. This enhances the solution’s competitive edge, and is ideal when dealing with large components, improving the quality of the component being manufactured.”
