KERN Micro

Compact and productive — 24/7

Whether with 3 or 5 axes, KERN Micro is an ultra compact CNC machining center for fully automated production with minimal dimensional variance. It is capable of machining precision workpieces with a maximum height of 220mm and a maximum diameter of 350 mm.

Minimal waste with high process stability

KERN Micro is designed for maximum repeat accuracy and high Cpk values in unmanned production. Due to minimal waste and high process stability, much longer sampling intervals can be used during quality control, greatly reducing production costs.
