  • KNUTH Workshop Container
    Do you have a need for remote or job site mobile workshops, offices or living spaces? Check out KNUTH Machine Tools new container concepts available now at

  • A comprehensively equipped workshop that is completely mobile and ready for use at any location.  This very sturdy shipping container was customized for this specific purpose. It can easily be transported by ship, railway or truck.  The container includes a lathe, a drill press/milling machine, a miter band saw, a workshop press, and various hand devices and small equipment for pressing, grinding, welding, and more.  Machines are equipped with a basic selection of clamping devices and tools.  Three solid workbenches serve as machine stands, while offering plenty of storage room for standard and optional equipment.  Good lighting through LED lights in the ceiling.  The included generator with Honda engine allows independent operation of the workshop no matter where you need it.  An additional workbench serves as large work surface and features a heavy-duty workbench vise.  Two windows let plenty of daylight into the work space, and can be closed via blinds.  Insulation, air conditioner, and heater ensure that this unit can be used in different climates.

  • Laser Cutting System

    • The state-of-the-art laser cutting system features a gantry-style construction with drives on both sides and a large work area that can accommodate most of the common plate sizes.

    • The Y-axis portal features and aluminum die-cast construction with low weight and high rigidity for excellent dynamics.

    • Thermal treatment of the meticulously welded machine frame and all structural parts reliably eliminates production-related material stresses, providing long lasting, precise alignment of all components.  This ensures long lasting and reproducible cutting edge accuracy and long machine life.

    • The precision linear guides require minimal maintenance and are designed for long lasting precision and high cutting speeds.

    • High precision rack-and-pinion gears on the Z- and Y- axes ensure superior and reliable positioning accuracy.

    • Powerful servo motors on all axes ensure high reliability and dynamics of the cutting system.

    • For better personal safety and lower environmental impacts, the cutting system is equipped with a machine housing and filter extraction system.  Special protective glass windows make is possible to observe the cutting process.

    • An automatic shuttle table system minimizes production shutdown times, since the table can be loaded and unloaded during the cutting process.

    • The ytterbium fiber laser can provide 1,000 to 4,000 watts of beam power, depending on machine configuration.  Made by renowned manufacturer, IPG, this systems ensures maximum cut quality and productivity.  Laser systems of 20 feet and power of up to 8 kW are available upon request.


    • CNC control with application-specific user interface

    • Technology database includes cutting parameters and pre-set cycles for various metals

    • The efficient processing of all cutting jobs is further supported by the software for parameter selection

    Cutter head

    • High-quality cutter head made by Precitec ensures excellent cut quality

    • Including motorized focus position adjustment, integrated collision guard, and height control

    • Maintenance-free beam guide via flexible fiber-optic cables ensures long life of the laser source
