The new floorplan at the MACH 2018 exhibition in April certainly reaped rewards for Kerf Developments, with the plasma, waterjet and oxy-fuel cutting manufacturer yielding a greater number of sales leads from a more diverse client base than at previous MACH exhibitions.
MACH 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 popular among visitors.
Commenting upon why the show was such a success among a diverse audience, Kerf Developments sales director Craig Walsh says: “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. We showed the Plasmaster 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. As a result, we sold two Plasmaster machines with the 200HD plasma unit to a sheet metal company and another to a fabrication business. However, we also had toolmakers and subcontractors showing interest.”
Alongside Kerf Developments’ new Plasmaster was the established RUR2500 and the heavy-duty RUM4500 machine with four cutting heads on a single gantry.
“We received more than 150 serious enquiries at MACH, and with three plasma machines on the stand, the majority of enquiries were for this technology,” says Walsh. “However, we had a significant number of leads from manufacturers interested in our waterjet and oxy-fuel range.”
