Precision Machined Parts and Components

Custom machining of detailed tooling for special assembly and test machine can be performed with our milling, turning, and grinding services. We machine a number of different components that are used to aid your production process, including locator pins, locator blocks, grippers, and special chuck jaws. Our specialty lies in fabricating hardened and ground locating "nest" fixtures.

Producing components from hardened steel, plastic, or non-ferrous materials according to your most stringent requirements is no problem for us. Most machined components can also be easily machined to tolerances of plus or minus 0.0002" (steel). Low volume urethane molded parts with stainless steel inserts, in various hardnesses and colors, are supplied to customer specifications.

Change over tooling for special machine projects are performed and tracked to meet rigid project schedules. Supporting this service is our in-house heat treatment services, which offers you component fabrication with improved turnaround time. We also offer cryogenic freezing services using our in-house liquid nitrogen bath for the production of stable, stress free, components. Design services for these components are offered by our experienced and capable, in-house design team. Dimensional accuracy of the components are verified in our ISO 17025:2005 and ANSI Z540-1 certified laboratory.

Lead Times

At Kent Machine, Inc., our unique and efficient job flow process allows us to minimize lead times down to 24 hrs 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.

Specialty Capabilities

Kent Machine Inc. has in-house specialty Heat Treating and Cryogenic Freeze capabilities to insure the quickest turnaround, highest quality, and dimensional consistency for your gauging and checking equipment needs. Our on-site Cryogenic Freeze cycle in (-270 °F) Liquid Nitrogen (HT>Draw>Freeze>Draw) stabilizes and stress relieves the material's molecular structure for maintaining dimensional consistency during the final grinding process, likewise assuring only the tightest tolerances and finest surface finishes for the most precise gauges and inspection fixtures.

KMI also specializes in gauge repair and calibration. Many shops will perform gauge design, build and repair. But few will also perform the calibration and validation in-house. This means Kent Machine Inc. is also a one stop shop for gauge repair (including subsequent calibration). This reduces lead times and increases confidence that the gauge will be repaired quickly and correctly, the first time.
