Flexible spindle consulting at KERN
30 years and a core competency
We have been concentrating on a single competence for almost 30 years: to repair grinding, turning and milling spindles of all kinds and makes the best way possible for our customers and to advise them sustainably on all issues concerning spindles. We always ask the same question: why has the spindle failed and what can we do to best prevent future failures? We react accordingly, implementing repair measures on the spindle and, at the same time, looking out for possible failure reasons in the spindle environment – the machine. Our aim is to put your production plants and machines on more reliable pillars.
Spindle expert advice by telephone or on-site
We take all our cues from you: we can provide spindle expert advice at any time by telephone or on site. The proximity creates clear advantages: our employees can analyze your spindle systems on the machine and, if possible, fix the problem directly.

Recurring spindle failures? Together, we will bring light into the dark.
Managing Director Markus Kern’s long personal experience with spindles plays a major role in the failure analysis and consulting we provide for our customers. In our analysis of the failure of the spindle, we deal intensively with the spindle environment because the cause of failure does not always have to be in the spindle itself; it can be due to many factors in the machine environment. Small changes of different parameters can move worlds.
In almost 20 years of company history, we have developed unique solution concepts that have significantly increased the productivity of our customers and enabled cost savings of millions of dollars.
