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.

||At Kent Machine, Inc., our unique and efficient job flow process allows us to minimize lead times down to 24hrs compared with other custom machine sources that turn around precision components in 2-3 days minimum. This is a significant advantage for turnaround of repairs so that our customers keep their manufacturing downtime to a minimum in cases where production must continue to flow.
