Kent Machine offers prototype and short run production milling, turning, and grinding services. We also offer medium to high volume Swiss turning.

Producing components from hardened steel, stainless, exotic aerospace materials, plastic, or non-ferrous materials according to your most stringent requirements is no problem for us. Most machined components can be easily machined to tolerances of ± 0.0002" (steel). Dimensional accuracy of your components is verified in our ISO 17025:2005 and ANSI Z540-1 certified laboratory. Our team has experience working with components that require multiple processes including heat treating, plating and coatings and various non-destructive and destructive tests.

For components that do not require certified heat treating, we offer our in-house heat treatment services, which reduces our turnaround time. We also offer cryogenic freezing services using our in-house liquid nitrogen bath for the production of stable, stress free, components.
