About us

KERN Microtechnik GmbH

develops and produces milling machines for the highest demands in precision milling and drilling. Furthermore the name KERN stands for over 45 years of µ-accuracy contract machining of precision parts.

As there was no machine on the market that was accurate enough for our contract manufacture we built our very own first KERN machine in 1983. Since then we engineer and manufacture vertical CNC machining centres for Micro manufacturing, as well as for hard cutting and exceptional surface quality requirements, with HSC milling spindles.

Our engineering and production facility is located south of Munich in Eschenlohe and Murnau. As a medium-size company with 146 employees we are also successful on international markets. Besides our subsidiary in Webster/MA, USA we are represented around the world by our distributors.


Our most demanding customer is KERN itself

More than 45 years of experience in the contract manufacturing of ultra precise micro parts, tool inserts, complex serial parts and prototypes give us the edge in this field. We combine micro milling, high speed milling, hard cutting, conventional CNC chip removal, wire and die sinking as well as profile, surface and jig grinding.

Not only the preciseness and robustness of our machines makes KERN special, but the combination of being a contract and machine manufacturer. Our contract division comprises twelve KERN CNC milling centres. All our experience gained in the contracting business flows directly into our machine development and further on to our clients who benefit from our comprehensive knowledge when needing assistance for new applications. Our support doesn't end with the purchase of your machine, but lasts for a litetime.
