Our Dartford production capabilities include 5 axis horizontal and vertical multi-pallet CNC turning centres, CNC milling, wire erosion, prismatic machining, grinding, test and inspection. Access our full plant capacity details.
Our ability to offer a complete manufacturing solution means that we maintain full control of the production process, minimising the potential impact of external influences, and ensuring that we can deliver your project on time. The flexibility of a second manufacturing facility in Tewkesbury means that Kenard benefits from additional capacity and process facilities if required to meet your needs.
We have made significant investments in our fully equipped inspection facilities to ensure that outgoing product quality levels are maintained to the highest standard. Our co-ordinate measuring machines (CMM) are operated by highly skilled, qualified engineers who work to criteria defined within our fully certified quality system, enabling us to complete First Article Inspection Reports (FAIR) in the shortest possible time frame.
All our production activities are supported by a range of value added services.
As part of the technical service that we offer, the ‘design for manufacture’ facility is an integral part of the operation. Our sales, production and quality departments work closely with you to carry out detailed evaluations of your design and manufacturing requirements. This will provide you with:
- A dedicated manufacturing design and problem solving service
- Optimisation of your component design for manufacture
- Shorter programming and manufacturing lead times
- Lower material costs through reduced waste
- A quality product that performs in service
Drawing Free Manufacture
From your 3D models and supported by 2D drawings marked up with critical and/or non-critical features, we use modelling/programming/simulation software to interrogate the model to produce CNC programs for manufacturing. This enables us to offer:
- Faster program times
- Mitigate the risk of errors and therefore reduced prove out times
- Faster time to market
Customer service is our main priority, so where appropriate we will appoint your company a dedicated account manager and if required a primary contact for a specific project.
