Alexander Stauder

Head of Application Technology

I've been with KERN since the start of my apprenticeship as a mechatronics technician in 2002. Since then I've become an engineer and am still fascinated by my work. We simply don't make standard products, instead we constantly push back the limits of what is technically possible.

Contract Production

Since 1962 Kern Microtechnik has been delivering highly precise parts with an accuracy down to the last μm and with an excellent surface finish. With our wide range of technology and modern machinery we can meet the most challenging assignments. Today we are one of Europe’s largest contract manufacturers in high-end machining, with a focus on serial production of micro- and high precision parts.

Our machine shop hosts 18 Kern ultra-high precision CNC machining centers with high speed spindles. This provides us with an enormous capacity to manufacture serial batches from 50 up to 10,000 pieces. Prototypes are being manufactured on the same machines and the process can be transferred to serial production without any issues. We have a wide range of serial production parts; watch plates, fibreoptic connectors, medical endoscope heads and turbine wheels in the submillimeter range are only a few of them.
