Kern Expertise

The combination of contract manufacturing and engineering

In 1981, our contract production branch had a requirement for an especially precise machine. Since no such machine was available on the market, our engineers developed the first Kern machine for high precision manufacturing. Today, Kern Microtechnik’s CNC machining centers are known worldwide for their high precision and reliability.

For our customers, this brings a double benefit: Kern machines provide Kern contract manufacturing with the best results in the most demanding processing tasks, 24/7. Conversely, our long-standing manufacturing experience feeds continuously into the further development of our Kern CNC precision machines.

Materials used

Our wide range of processing methods for special materials

At Kern contract production, we specialize in high precision machining of diverse (including exotic) materials. In addition to common materials such as brass, aluminum and stainless steel, this particularly includes:

  • Copper alloys such as nickel silver and tungsten copper
  • Titanium alloys
  • Hardened tool steels and hard metals
  • Heavy metals such as molybdenum and tungsten
  • Nickel-base alloys such as Inconel, Hastelloy and Nitinol
  • Special alloys such as Kovar, Invar and Ferro-Titanit
  • Technical plastics such as Vespel
  • Millable ceramics such as Macor and boron nitride
  • Hard ceramics such as zirconium oxide and aluminum oxide
  • Precious metals such as gold and platinum

Machining facilities & downloads

Our air-conditioned workshops are home to the best machine tools currently available for ultra-precision machining. Our Kern machines are complemented by machines from leading manufacturers such as Agie, Hermle and ZEISS to complete our production range and provide μ-accurate monitoring and quality assurance.
