Welcome to Kentin Engineering – Perth’s Masters of Metal. From its origins in 1986, Kentin has matched traditional metal fabrication and welding skills with the latest and best in technological advances in CNC machining, cutting, milling machinery and other precision engineering services. Nothing symbolises this marriage of the traditional and the new better than our model steam locomotive division, but businesses of all kinds which need high-quality precision metal fabrication and engineering will find their needs met at Kentin Engineering.

Take a look at the range of precision engineering services we provide. In addition to steam train manufacture, our well-equipped workshops in Malaga, Western Australia provide:

  • Precision machining and metal fabrication
  • CNC machining programming, using the very latest in 3D, multi-axis tools.
  • EDM wire cutting machinery
