Making kick scooters
by laser cutting
Kostka - Kolobka s.r.o. started in 1993 in the Czech Republic as a welding subcontractor for metal fencing before turning to bicycle frames, keeping the metal fabrications in parallel, and finally making kick scooters.
Kostka - Kolobka s.r.o. makes no less than 25 models of kick scooters. They have models designed for use in cities, touring, fitness and racing. Approximately 10,000 roll out of the factory a year with a 10% increase.
Some years ago, they decided to boost productivity while maintaining the same quality.
Part accuracy is one of the most important factors on kick scooters and impacts the final performance of the product.
With BLM LT8.20 technology, Kostka-Kolobka s.r.o. revolutionized the manufacturing process of kick scooters, replacing the main manual system and opening to new potentials, making it possible to address an increasing number of diverse customers.
The new bending and laser cutting systems have eliminated many weld seams and drastically reduced the number of components.
