Kern - Machining Centers - 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.

Increased productivity through cutting edge technologies

With its numerous mature technologies, KERN Micro brings substantial advantages to serial production:

  • Production with minimal dimensional variance due to a positional accuracy of ±1 μm
  • Largest possible pivoting range on a 4 sq. m floor area
  • Tool cabinet with quick-change plates for over 200 tools
  • Interfaces for all commercial automation
  • Intelligent thermal management for optimal temperature regulation of all machine components
  • Perfect ergonomics with full access to the working space as well as free access to the mounting area
  • One-box design

Kern Microtechnik

From idea to finished part

Increased productivity and profitability

KERN Microtechnik's customers place great value on two-way collaboration with our dedicated development and sales engineers. Our goal is always to fully exploit the high potential of KERN machines >> to increase both our customers' productivity and the efficiency of their processes, keeping them ahead of technical advancements and the ever-increasing demands on component quality.

Consistent points of contact at KERN

KERN machine support >> provides uniquely competent customer support with fast response times. When you buy a KERN machine, you get your own personal contact for the entire lifetime of the machine, giving you ongoing, individualized optimization of your production processes.

All KERN engineers possess extensive industry know-how and expert knowledge of our machines. That's why they're frequently attached to our customers' development teams as technology consultants.

Technology partnership with the KERN family

Many product development managers already have ideas for "KERN parts" which would hugely advance their business, but which until now were beyond the reach of serial production. The solution lies in a technology partnership with our machine design and contract production experts. Join the KERN family!

The efficient transfer of know-how between KERN machine engineering >> and KERN contract production >> — with the aim of permanently expanding the feasibility threshold for key components — enables our customers to constantly maintain their technological lead, even during periods of rapid progress!
