founded in 1962 to develop cylindrical die thread rolling
machines. In the years since, it has
become a world class
developer and manufacturer of specialized metal forming,
processing equipment. Today the Kinefac
Division products are sold worldwide. Initially, its
Kine-Roller® thread rolling machines and Kine-Form® dies were used to produce fasteners for the U.S.
market. As the
automotive industry moved toward cold formed and near net shaped
shafts for steering,
starters, alternators, wipers, power
windows and seat adjusters it applied its rolling capabilities
market. To provide blanks for these shafts it developed
its patented Kine-Turn® center drive lathes. As
use of hollow shafts grew they introduced the advanced Kine-Xtrude® CNC metal extrusion machines.
As its cold forming laboratory capabilities grew, it
formed the Kine-Pro Division to
perform unusual or difficult rolling, coiling and
extrusion operations for customers
who desired an outside source
for such parts. Having built up internal capability to
hydraulic power units and pneumatic part handling systems, it established the KinePower Division to exploit it in New England.
Sleeper and Hartley spring making machine
business was acquired and has
since evolved into the Kine-Coil/Sleeper
Division. Today they produce leading edge
Micro-Coilers for the
production of very small medical coils and other specialized
spring making equipment. Most recently, Kinefac acquired the
Barrett Centrifugals product line and is now applying this
technology to a variety of new applications of
centrifugal fluid reclamation, chip cleaning and parts
washing and drying.
50 year history, the success of Kinefac® has been built on a cohesive
team of engineers, designers, assemblers and its supporting
committed to establishing worldwide leadership in its
various niche markets.
