Metal Trimming and Forming machines
Gigant is the Italian official re-seller for Kurth + Heuser, German manufacturer of trimming and forming machines, so to offer to the customer the complete process from the sheet metal to the final product.
Kurth + Heuser was founded in 1961 and initially operated in the areas of machining and assembling of sheet metal parts. In 1988, the first machine for the manufacturing of rounded bottoms was designed and produced. Since then, K+H has continued to specialize in metal trimming and forming machines. These tools are using an exceptionally economic method for edge processing of extruded or deep-drawn sheet-metal hollow parts. Since 1995 K+H has been building customised machines, and also developing turnkey vessels, boilers, fuel tanks and similar products production lines. Some of the processing methods used are: bending, trimming, edging, flanging, radius forming, rolling, beading, drilling and trimming. K+H methods are suitable for circular and non-circular containers, turned and drawn parts, tubes and rings with diagonal dimensions up to 2.000 mm, materials up to 12 mm thick and 1.800 mm long.
Kurth + Heuser is certified by DEKRA according to ISO 9001:2008.

Metal Trimming and Forming Machines

K+H machines have a modular design. This allows a flexible setup use of the right processing units and an easy adaptation to several workpiece geometries and tasks. At the same time, the machines offer economic efficiency, ergonomics and operator safety. In case of new manufacturing requirements, they can be quickly adapted.
Flexible processing of hollow sheet metal parts and sheet iron pipes (circular/non-circular)
Operations: Trimming, flanging, radius forming, folding, etc.
