KALTENBACH machines can be used in a huge variety of processes. The company produces coping robots, painting systems, welding robots, marking systems, punching and shearing systems, shotblast systems, bandsawing machines and circular sawing machines. KALTENBACH provides technical services including original replacement parts and tools.
The KALTENBACH KC 1201 gas cutting robot offers top-level coping, which is a technique for shaping the of a moulding/frame component to neatly fit the contours of an adjoining piece. This robust coping robot guarantees consistently high quality even in complex cutting procedures. Entering data is simple and requires no programming knowledge. Machining simulation and collision control ensure trouble-free operation.
The company is primarily known for its high-quality, powerful sawing machines used in metalworking applications. The KALTENBACH saw range consists of bandsawing machines and circular saws.
A total of ten bandsawing machines are produced by KALTENBACH for the metalworking sector. The machines can be found in the KALTENBACH "KBS" range and are primarily designed for processing light- and medium-weight steel. See below for an overview of key features.

KALTENBACH circular saws comprise the following series:
- KALTENBACH TL Series
- KALTENBACH SKL Series
- KALTENBACH KKS Series
Below is an overview of key technical features for KALTENBACH circular sawing machines:

The circular saws of the TL Series, including the KALTENBACH TL 250 and TL 350, are manual saws suitable for use on non-ferrous metals. The devices in the SKL range are fully- and semi-automatic mitre saws and are also used to process non-ferrous metals. Most of the company’s circular saws are in the KALTENBACH KKS Series, which encompasses fully-automatic universal saws (such as the KKS 400 E, KKS 400 H and KKS 400 NA) as well as semi-automatic mitre saws (including the KKS 350). There are also KALTENBACH cold saws, such as the KKS 370, which uses a toothed blade to dissipate the heat generated by cutting to the chips, thereby enabling both the blade and material being cut to remain cool.
High-performance KALTENBACH HDM 1432 and KALTENBACH HDM 800 circular sawing machines are widely used in heavy-steel processing and trading. The HDM 800 is no longer produced but can be found on the second-hand market.
The company produces four plate cutting/drilling centres which are grouped together in the KALTENBACH KF Series.
- KALTENBACH KF 1614
- KALTENBACH KF 2114/ 28
- KALTENBACH KF 2614/ 28
- KALTENBACH KF 3114/ 28
The machines are classified according to maximum working range, which lies between 1600 x 6000 mm in the smallest model and 3100 x 6000 mm in the top model. All the machines are also available in an expanded version enabling plates measuring up to 12000 mm in length to be processed. A 14-slot tool changer comes as standard offering tools for drilling, burning, creation of contours, marking, milling, tap-drilling and levelling without requiring lengthy tool set-up times.
KALTENBACH’s painting system range includes seven machines. Painting and drying in a single package – the models in the KPC range are fitted with between 4 and 12 spray guns to enable a range of painting applications. The KTC Series can be equipped with 12 – 24 spray guns and are used as final-painting systems for customised steel profiles and steel constructions. The capacity range of the machines lies between 1500 mm in the KPC 1512 and 3000 mm in the KTC 3012.
Six profile drilling machines and one high-performance processing centre are available from KALTENBACH. The drilling machines offer space for 3, 15 or 18 tools, while the BAZ KDH 1060 can be equipped with up to 60. KALTENBACH drills are used to process steel construction profiles, heavy-duty steelwork and are prevalent in the steel-trading sector.
The company’s drilling machine range offers a selection of capacity ranges that are as varied as their other lines. The KDE 603 features a range of 600 x 500 mm, while the top model can process workpieces with surfaces of up to 2100 x 700 mm.
Below is an overview of the available models:

Steel Beam Assembly (SBA) is the description given to KALTENBACH’s welding robots. Their steel beam assemblers feature fully-automated controls and can operate error-free. The production data are imported directly from any standard CAS system, transferred by the software solution "pro-FIT", and then executed by the SBA welding robots. The SBA offers a huge range of production applications and can process batches of any size starting from a single unit.
The two machines of the KALTENBACH KPS-A Series are powerful punching/shearing machines for angle steel. The working range on angle material on the KPS-A 167 is 160 x 160 x 20 mm, which is smaller than that of the KPS-A 207. THE KPS-A 207 machine is designed for angle materials measuring 200 x 200 x 25 mm. Both machines come equipped with 2 x 3 punching tools/2 x 3 dies, automated material thickness measuring, and a marking unit with triple marking wheel. The KPS-A 207 features an impressive double-cut shearing unit and the KALTENBACH KPS-A 167 comes equipped with a single shearing unit, but this contains several shear blades.

Sprint, Marathon and Triathlon - these are the athletic-sounding names given to KALTENBACH’s shotblast systems.
The economical 1504, 1506, 2506 and A3008 models of the Sprint Series offer an optimal cleaning effect using a range of turbines, which differ in number depending on model (between four and eight). The four A1506, A2506, A3008 and A4008 models of the Marathon Series are designed for continual use. The A1506 and A2506 models have six turbines, which they use to blast abrasives at rough surfaces.
The Triathlon A1508, A3010 and A3010HD models are large-scale shotblasting plants for steel constructions.
