Yes it is possible to make centrifuge machines as is evident from the large enrichment plants. It is unlikely that one could make an efficient centrifuge because is requires the right material and high-precision manufacturing techniques.

Basically one wants to maximize the angular velocity without causing the disruption of the centrifuge casing.

They would usually be in the region of 100000 rpm, magnetic bearing are used to try to eliminate as much friction as possible.
