Machine Shop

K&N's Machining Capability

With a lathe capable of turning equipment up to 8 feet in diameter, 35 feet in length, and weights up to 50,000 lbs, it is easy to see that we are serious about our machine shop. While we can perform any needed electric motor machining process, many of our customers have come to rely on our machine shop for a myriad of their non-motor related mechanical needs. We can build the same type of reliability into your driven mechanical equipment that we have been building into motors for over 60 years.
