Custom Part Manufacturing

Image Through our innovative approach to tooling design and construction, KI has established an industry leadership role in reducing tooling lead time. Our fully integrated CAD/CAM process means improved accuracy and reduced time.

For over twenty years KI has partnered with tooling manufacturers in Asia enabling us to build high-quality tooling at competitive costs. Last year we built over 150 tools with our Asian tooling partners. Our experience in managing the tool build from design to qualification provides our Customer's with the peace of mind to focus on their other project activities without expensive and time-consuming overseas travel for you. The cost you are quoted is the total cost from design to T1 sampling to tool qualification and PPAP approval. KI will manage the tool from start to finish.

KI's modeling capabilities include development of solid model engineering files and S.L.A./S.L.S. rapid prototypes. KI will make sure that you will get parts and assemblies on time and right the first time.
