Choosing Salamander Fabrications as your Kiosk Design and Fabrication Company

At Salamander, we are exceptionally proud of the wide range of products and services that we are able to offer to our customers. Kiosks and self-service units have been growing in popularity in recent years and as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, there has been an increased demand for contactless/self-service options on behalf of consumers. Advanced kiosks, interactive kiosks and self-service kiosks need to be practical for both companies and consumers, as well as being easy to assemble, long-lasting, versatile and simple to use.

For touchscreen or interactive kiosks wiring, welding and electronic components are required. These can be added after the main structure of the kiosk is built, or they can be fully integrated into the body of the project through the use of electromechanical assembly. We’re highly skilled in successful electromechanical assembly for all metalworking projects.

We Fabricate a Full Range of Kiosks, Vending Machines and Metal Enclosures

So, what is a kiosk? Essentially, a kiosk is a metal enclosure used for the purpose of serving something to customers – sometimes manned and sometimes unmanned. There are a range of metal enclosures that exist in public spaces for these purposes which require manufacture to a high standard in order to withstand the elements and rigorous use. Here are a few examples of metal enclosures we can produce as UK-leading kiosk manufacturers:

  • Vending machines
  • Hot beverage dispensing machines
  • Food kiosks 
  • Catering kiosks
  • Electrical enclosures
  • Ticketing and parking booths
  • ATMS
  • Parcel collection lockers
  • Other self-serve kiosks and kiosk machines

With specialist machinery and highly skilled operatives, the finished product we produce will always be uniform, exceptionally high quality and stand the test of time. Choose a metal fabrication company that understands your requirements and manufactures with accuracy and you will save a huge amount of money in maintenance and replacement costs in the long run. 

Vending Machine Manufacture and Assembly

Vending machines can be an important channel of income for many customer-facing companies, including retail and leisure organisations such as:

  • Shops and shopping centres
  • Hotels
  • Gyms
  • Leisure centres
  • Offices and co-working spaces
  • Cinemas and theatres
  • Bus stations and transport hubs
  • Schools and colleges

Working with our clients in the vending industry has given us extensive experience in creating bespoke designs and fabrications that work perfectly for each of our customers. Whatever your requirements are, we have the machinery to meet them and create your bespoke electrical kiosk machines or vending machines.

Whether you require parts for cold drink machines, food vending machines, or even water dispensers, our team can advise you on the right materials, designs and processes to build the best quality machinery for your needs. 

Specialist Food Kiosk Manufacturers in the UK

Are you looking for a food kiosk manufacturer who regularly creates fully kitted-out kiosks for catering businesses and suppliers? At Salamander, we’re able to collaborate with clients to create kiosks which meet your specific brief, order quantity and deadline, every time. As a large-scale operation, we can produce at scale to tight deadlines with no compromising on quality. 

When working in the food industry it’s important to choose a supplier for kiosk fabrication that you can rely on for quality materials, in particular food-grade stainless steels. We not only build the products, we source the raw materials from scratch and control the entire process of sheet metal fabrication. That way you can rest assured that your food kiosk sheet metals are made to correct specifications, such as including countertops made from high-purity, food-grade stainless steel in case of contact with foods.

Our Process for Manufacturing Kiosks, Vending Machines and Enclosures

At Salamander, we can operate as a subcontractor to provide the necessary components and services for other companies, or we can handle the entire fabrication process in-house.

While every project is slightly different, the sheet metal fabrication process has a few key stages that are applicable to the majority of projects.


Sheet metal fabrication often begins with CAD 3D design of your product. We’re experienced in creating products using strict brand design plans as well as helping clients make completely bespoke CAD designs from scratch.

In addition to offering this as a service, Salamander works closely with our clients to ensure that the final product conforms precisely to their specifications. 

Our team is highly adept at using the latest sheet metal design software packages, including Radan and Solidworks. Using CAD/CAM design also means that we are able to quickly and easily programme our CNC machinery to carry out precise work in line with the original design specifications.


Once you’ve greenlit the designs, we can start the sheet metal fabrication process, often including laser cutting metals to the necessary shapes. At Salamander, we use a Bystronic BySprint Fibre Laser Cutter, a system that provides greater speed, efficiency, and accuracy.

After the metal has been cut, it is then punched and folded using CNC punching and folding machinery to create angles, divots, textures, creases and joints. CNC punching is available for short to medium run lengths of sheet metal, the working area of which is 3000mm x 1500mm.

In addition, we have four CNC press brakes, including one with a 4.2-metre bed and a 180-ton capacity. We can accomplish effective results through the use of a wide range of tools and toolsets to produce highly accurate results.


Finally, we carry out welding, electromechanical assembly and metal powder coating (if required) to finish our products. Electromechanical assembly is particularly important for customers in the kiosk & vending sectors due to the complexity of the electrical components often required in these types of projects.

Electromechanical assembly is usually one of the final stages of a sheet metal fabrication project. It requires expert care and attention to detail to ensure that all the relevant components are installed accurately and safely.

The electromechanical assembly process involves combining electrical and mechanical components to power different systems, for instance in an electrical kiosk machine. Our team of technicians can assist in both the design and integration of mechanical and electrical equipment. 

No matter the size of the project, we use reliable and robust machinery to provide a complete assembly process. That’s how we guarantee an efficient build of high-quality products every time.


Salamander is a design-to-delivery kiosk manufacturer, meaning that we’re a one-stop shop that will take you from design through to receiving your goods on time to a preferred location. You’ll have a dedicated account manager to help ensure all of your requirements are met from start to finish, including answering any queries you have along the way.
