Our LVD Fiber Lasers are often fed a diet of 12mm Stainless or 6mm Aluminium, but today they have been feasting on some lightweight 0.55mm Zincanneal. The advanced cutting head on the Fiber Laser cuts at speeds of over 36m/min on this job, ensuring each component was cut in less than three seconds.
If you are looking for a speedy solution to your laser cutting, talk to the team at Kilner’s Engineering.
With over 20 years of laser cutting experience Kilner’s Engineering can now offer the latest in fiber laser cutting technology. Our recent installation of a 10kW LVD Phoenix 6020 fiber laser combines the benefits of quality, speed and efficiency with a large 6100 x 2035mm work envelope. We can reliably and efficiently process Aluminium and Stainless Steel in thicknesses from 0.5mm sheet to 32mm plate.
This technology enhances our capability to supply large projects with short lead-times and builds on our integrated approach to design, laser cutting, waterjet cutting, CNC machining, CNC turning, metal folding, fabrication and assembly services within the one facility.
Kilner’s Engineering is an advanced manufacturer with over 70 years of experience and investment in Queensland.

The technology has been purchased by Kilner’s Engineering as part of the Made in Queensland (MiQ) Program, a Queensland Government initiative providing matched funding to assist manufacturers to become more internationally competitive, adopt new innovative processes and technologies and create high-skilled jobs of the future
Multi-task or Mill-turn machining allows for greater flexibility and better accuracy to be achieved with shorter lead-times.
Kilner’s Engineering offers a range of machining services which include turning, machining and combined mill-turn approaches. Each of the parts has been modelled in Solidworks for drawing approval prior to manufacture. Part 1 is a customised hydraulic fitting machined from 4140, while part 2 is a ball joint for steam and is machined from 316 Grade Stainless Steel.
Brass and Copper have a unique range of properties which makes them critical to many industries: • Electrical and Thermal Conductivity • Wear and Corrosion Resistance • Fast and accurate Machining • Aesthetics and Hygiene.
Kilner’s Engineering have CNC Mill-Turned the Slotted M8 threaded screws, Laser cut the signage from 1.6mm Brass and Copper sheet, and CNC Machined the Earth Bars from 76.2×19.05mm Brass Flat.
We can process the full range of stock sizes in Round, Square, Hex, Flat, Sheet and Plate in-house from our Morningside facility.
Production on the new LVD Fiber Laser is now in full swing at Kilner’s Engineering. Currently it is processing Toolboxes from 2mm 5005 grade Aluminium. These will then be pressed, welded in-house then powder-coated prior to assembly.
Custom machine parts make a regular appearance on the CNC Machines at Kilner’s Engineering. This billet 316 Grade Stainless Steel roller chain sprocket is machined from a piece of 127mm diameter bar and bearings will be pressed in from both sides. It has been redesigned for additional strength and reliability and will be used in the food processing industry.
With 5 second tooling changes, the Kilner’s Engineering CNC Machining Centres make light work of complex components. Starting as a waterjet cut blank, these aluminium mounting plates are machined, drilled and tapped in our VTC200B CNC machining centre ahead of powder-coating and the final assembly. Water-jet cutting the blank in-house prior to CNC machining reduces process time, cost and waste.
Kilner’s Engineering offers CNC machining services in a wide range of Engineering Materials including engineering plastics.
This part is manufactured from Nylon with molybdenum disulphide (PA6MO) to enhance the load bearing and wear properties. It is completely machined in only 1 setup using one of our Mazak mill turn lathes.
After 45 years operating in Godwin St, Bulimba, Kilner’s Engineering have relocated to a larger state of the art facility in neighbouring Morningside to accomodate our growing business. Kilner’s Engineering remains conveniently located in Brisbane’s Inner South, between the Gateway and Story Bridges with easy access to the North, South, East and West. Our phone number remains the same and the team can be contacted on (07) 3399 4273.
