KERN's Distribution Partnership with Innolite

KERN's high-precision machining centers and Innolite's diamond machining centers are now available from a single source due to a distribution partnership in North America. "As a result, customers can work more flexibly and achieve an increase in productivity compared to other solutions," said a company spokesperson.

KERN Precision Inc. (KPI) has concluded a distribution partnership with Innolite GmbH (Aachen, Germany) for the North American market. Toni Mangold, Sales Director of KERN USA, and Dr. Christian Wenzel, CEO of Innolite, signed the corresponding agreement in April 2018. "As a result, both company representatives believe they can now offer the best possible solutions in the field of ultra-precision machining (e.g., for optical production)," said a company spokesperson.

The acquisition and execution of joint projects will be overseen by KPI Area Sales Manager Gary Zurek, as he explained: "We can now provide a combination of KERN high-precision machining centers and Innolite diamond machining centers for this extremely demanding market segment." This allows customers to work more flexibly and achieve significant productivity gains compared to other solutions. "Our initial user tests have shown that we can undercut the usual processing times, in some cases by more than 50%, while achieving maximum reliability due to proven and standardized interfaces," added Zurek.

A decisive factor here is that the technologies of KPI and Innolite suitablly complement each other. KERN machining centers, such as the KERN Pyramid Nano and KERN Micro, enable high-precision preprocessing of the workpiece. The increased precision and reliability of this first processing step means that the subsequent finishing work - using ultra-precision machines from Innolite - can be carried out faster and more efficiently than was previously possible.
