KERN Precision, Inc.  has introduced the KERN Micro, a compact 5-axis vertical machining center. The KERN Micro is the ideal machine for manufacturers with ultra-precision requirements and a wide range of production needs for nanoscale to large sized parts. The machine tool can accommodate large workpieces up to 350mm in diameter and 220mm in height, yet takes extraordinarily little space on the shop floor. The Micro offers precise machining with accuracy down to ±0.5 microns, with achievable part accuracy down to ±2 microns. The product delivers high repeatability for reliable and productive operation.


Besides a small footprint, the Micro offers all the high end capabilities expected from KERN. The new product offers a tool cabinet with quick-change pallet for more than 200 tools. The system also includes a workpiece palletization system using a System 3R Macro Magnum or Erowa Power automatic chuck as a pallet receiver. Other key features include an automatic laser tool measuring system, a workpiece probing system, and an advanced temperature control system for maintaining and ensuring the highest possible accuracies expected from a KERN machine tool.
