KB Components’ choice of NX CAM helps them maintain excellent delivery quality

KB Components is seated in Örkelljunga, Sweden and provide their market with molded components. Their customers are industrial companies, especially in the automotive industry.

After investing in new molding machines KB Components acquired a massive milling machine with five-axis at the end of 2018. The milling machine can handle even the largest molding tools and can manage ten tons on its work table. KB Components has in recent years grown both organically and through acquisitions, and this investment will shorten lead times for repair work and further ensure delivery precision of molded details. In addition, they will have an overcapacity in the machine hall and can offer external companies machine services that are otherwise difficult to find in the region.

With an updated and hyper-modern machine park KB Components also evaluated and upgraded their CAD/CAM installation.

NX CAD/CAM – a strategic choice

Lennart Seger is Chief Engineer at KB Components and has extensive experience in CAD/CAM solutions. As an advisor on the purchase of CAD/CAM support, he says that choosing NX is a fundamental element in KB Components’ overall strategy.

“For us, the combination of NX CAD and NX CAM is a strategic choice. These stable and powerful tools work seamlessly together. Overall, it reduces the risk of sources of error and extra work.”

“Although the system initially may be perceived as more expensive than other CAD or CAM solutions, the flawless functionality and smooth integration between NX CAD and NX CAM return value fast.”

Nextage is excited to be KB Components CAD/CAM supplier and follow their successful journey.
