Tool, mold and die manufacture

In microtechnology, manufacturers of shaping and cutting dies and molds are often tasked with precise machining of very hard materials. All CNC Machining centers by KERN Microtechnik are perfectly suited to the direct milling of hardened steels or even carbide as well as milling with copper, tungsten copper and graphite electrodes.

Direct hard milling with KERN — your benefits

  • High quality surface finish due to HSC spindles with maximal smoothness, hydrostatic pivots and perfect contour control via iTNC530 or TNC 640

  • Milling of free-form surfaces with high precision through μ-exact spindle movements and 5-axis simultaneous milling

  • Very high absolute accuracy thanks to perfect calibration between tool and workpiece in all KERN machines

  • Short set-up times for small production batches

Electrode milling with KERN — your benefits

  • Very high absolute accuracy as a basis for stable EDM processes

  • High quality surface finish due to HSC spindles with maximal smoothness, hydrostatic pivots and perfect contour control via iTNC530 or TNC 640

  • Extremely high repeat accuracy: thanks to perfect thermal management every KERN machine enables absolutely stable unmanned serial production (using proprietary technologies)
