This will make Kloeckner one of the few businesses in the UK capable of processing parts up to 355mm in diameter and weighing up to 100kg/m.

In addition to processing hollow-section tubes, it can also process large beams, columns, split tees, angles and channels.

It features a touch-screen interface and an operating system that is up to 30% faster and uses the latest Artube 3 CAD software.

Kloeckner group commercial director Clint Jones said: “We are delighted with this new addition to our processing portfolio.

"The features and versatility of the new LT14 laser processing machine will enable us to better service various sectors such as the construction, transport and energy markets, which require larger processed parts.

"Having these extensive processing capabilities under one roof allows us to offer our customers high-quality parts in shorter lead times to the specifications required.”
