Lowes Metals take delivery of a new Lefort Koloss 1000TS

Lowes Metals, long standing customer of Lefort, have installed the latest Koloss 1000 TS shear for their facility in Standford-le-hope. Over many years Lowes have been working a Lefort shear in their family yard located in Grays, Essex. Their recent move to their new yard has allowed them to expand the business and the need to increase production. One of the first jobs on the list was to order a new Lefort capable of taking on the new challenge.

The Koloss 1000 TS comes from our Multi-Block range of machinery which are shipped in an number of pieces and assembled onto a simple foundation. The TS model uses the famous Lefort wrap around box, combined with the window crosshead design, and is capable of processing up to 30T/hr.

The machine was installed in a week and has suprised the operator about just how fast it is. "The box closes so quickly, you have to be much quicker to keep up. On the old machine I used to get a break during the auto cycle, but this machine finishes cutting in no time!"

The Koloss 1000 TS is a very popular machine in the UK with many machines currently running and quite a few more due to be delivered this year.
