Our highly trained and experienced honing and machining operators ensure every task is completed to exacting standards and precise tolerances. Using our advanced honing machinery and the latest software, K&R can precision engineer components in a wide range of metals from steel to titanium, stainless steel, bronze and aluminium.
Our new machine shop includes a $1.3 million 10m CNC lathe. This unique piece of machinery is one of only a handful in Australia. It will join our existing range of specialised honing equipment that includes:
|1000mm length travel|
|1500mm length travel|
|3000mm length travel|
We also have a full range of conventional machines including best-available honing equipment. We have just upgraded our eight-metre Sunnen hone and installed a cooler and a final Brahms filtration system. This stops barrels heating up during honing which can affect the final size calculation. The new system cools the honing process to a temperature where we can get an accurate final size. That oil is then filtered to ensure no grit is present during polishing.
Some of our specialised honing machines include:
- Sunnen HL-80
- Sunnen STH-8000-HXEM
- 38mm to 670mm maximum bore
- 10-metre maximum blind length.
We have fully filtered air clean room to military standard for building pumps, motors and valving. It maintains the workshop to sub-10micron particles.
Our full industrial paint booth is large enough for a truck, has a roof that opens, and offers a bake cycle for enamel finishes.
Our attention to detail is guaranteed. We collaborate with Central Coast Hydraulics in the manufacture of canting keel cylinders for world-class racing yachts. Every customer ultimately benefits from this type of high quality work where K&R has established and maintained our reputation.
