Kernell’s Automatic Machining (KAM) is a premier provider of cost-effective, accurate, and flexible Swiss CNC machining services. With over 50 years of experience, we can deliver quality products that meet the needs of even the toughest jobs.
Compared to screw machining, which involves removing material from a rotating workpiece, Swiss CNC machining relies on pre-programmed instructions to direct the movement of tooling and make the desired cuts. This results in the ability to handle more delicate parts with improved speed, repeatability, precision, and versatility. Since Swiss CNC machining is a computer-driven process, it also allows for a high degree of part-to-part consistency.
Various industries and applications rely on Swiss CNC turning centers for precision machined parts, including:
- Food and Beverage
- Lawn and Garden
- Wire Rope Fittings
- Fan Shaft Hubs
Service & Application: Our Swiss CNC Machining Capabilities
At Kernell’s Automatic Machining, we design and build tools and special equipment to meet each client’s specific needs and applications in a single operation. We can adhere to tight tolerances and deliver parts with complex geometries while striving to improve cycle times, minimize operations, and deliver near-perfect parts.
Our Swiss CNC machining capabilities include machining precision parts measuring 0.050’’ to 1.250’’ in diameter with lengths up to 20’’. We maintain tight tolerances of ±0.0005’’ total on the part diameter, 0.001’’ total on the length and concentricity, and 0.005’’ total tolerance on straightness for long parts.
Swiss CNC machining services from Kernell’s Automatic Machining are ideal for applications that require repeatability and exacting standards. Components such as surgical tools and screws for the medical industry demand the precise consistency that CNC Swiss machining offers.
