Design and Engineering Services

At Kent Machine, Inc. complete engineering support from concept through run off is provided for customers. Our engineering department utilizes 3-D design of single station assembly or test machines. Pneumatic and electrical schematics are always supplied at the completion of any project. For customers who prefer 2-D formats, we support AutoCAD drawings too. KMI can supply turnkey services in single station assembly and test/inspection machines. We can also provide turnkey solutions for work holding fixtures and custom designed attribute as well as variable gauges. The Kent Machine metrology lab provides design with reverse engineering capability.

Experience in working with different materials allows us to provide expert assistance as well as guidance in material selection based on material properties or its applications. Chemical composition and material facts are explained to customers along with images of our previous projects, prior to selecting the appropriate material for their gauges.

Work holding fixtures are developed according to part geometric specifications supplied by the customers. Any type or configuration of a gauge can be custom designed to suit the part features and expected dimensional standards. Our mechanical, electrical, as well as pneumatic design and drafting services comply with ANSI 14.5 GD & T standards for geometric dimensioning & tolerancing. Testing and calibration of gauge designs are performed in compliance with ISO 17025 standards.
