Based in Brisbane, Kilner’s large format 10kW fiber laser made light work of these shelving brackets. Reaching a feed rate of 30m/min, each component was laser cut in approximately 7 seconds before heading to our 200 tonne brake press for folding.
While these brackets were laser cut from 2mm mild steel, we have the capacity to cut up to 25mm Mild Steel Plate, 32mm Aluminium and 32mm Stainless Steel cost effectively.
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
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.
