KI is your complete plastics injection molding partner. Our capabilities include 2-shot, 3-shot, insert and gas assist injection molding using a range of thermoset and thermoplastic materials and colors. This allows you to select the proper material and process to meet the most difficult design requirements.
Able to work with file formats such as:
Gas Assist Molding:
KI, with the assistance of resin manufacturer Ticona, was the first to develop a Hi-Gloss thermoplastic handle for the range industry. This provided Appliance Manufacturers a cost effective alternative to thermoset plastic and painted metal handles for oven doors.
Multi-shot and Insert Molding:
We launched our first two-shot production part in 1992. With the addition of three-shot molding capability several years ago KI has the ability to meet the demand for high-quality, aesthetic parts that have the tactile feel that many of today's designs require.
Today, KI has over 500 two-shot and three-shot molds in active production.
In addition to our multi-shot capabilities KI offers insert molding. This enables our engineers to design parts that may not be possible using only conventional molding processes. Insert molding allows us to incorporate components into the molded part, providing functionality without sacrificing aesthetic quality and eliminating the need for costly secondary operations.
Our Engineers fully understand the raw materials available to our industry. From the latest resin technology to tried and proven materials KI can suggest the best material for your part design, finish and performance requirements.
In addition to ensuring that the products we supply are safe for the consumer and the environment we make sure that our manufacturing processes are also. Our plating and painting systems meet all local Government Agency environmental requirements.
Our employees receive regular training in the latest systems and quality techniques. From basic Problem Solving techniques to PFMEA, DFMEA and Six Sigma tools this training serves as the cornerstone of our Continuous Improvement efforts. All employees are focused on providing the highest quality products and service for our customers.
