Kurtz KPS 2000/25-12 SKT Trimming Press Goes to U.S.


For two years now, Kurtz GmbH has had the largest and fastest trimming press on the market, the KPS 2000/25-12 SKT, already being used successfully by a range of customers. The KPS 2000/25-12 SKT has been expanded to include further highlights. All models can be freely selected for example the tables are available in tilting, sliding and slide-tilt versions. Time and again, this flexible adaptation to individual requirements has proven to be the decisive factor in the customer’s decision-making. This press type is now also available in the U.S. In addition to the version with 200 ton press force, a further version of the Kurtz trimming press with 300 tonne press force is also being built.

In addition to the speed, service and spare part supply are important decision criteria for every customer. This naturally also applies for the U.S, where Kurtz Ersa has been represented for over 30 years with Kurtz North America Inc. (Plymouth, Wisconsin). Of course, the business activities of the independent subsidiary for the U.S. market also include service and replacement parts.

It is not the cutting force alone which makes customers buy the Kurtz press, but also the following factors:
– Clamping area.
– Speed/cycle time.
– Permitted weight trimming tool.
– Machine operation.
– Software.
– Tool control function.
