At KI, we do not just sell parts.
We work from the design stage with our customers to develop the best plastic injection molded solution for their needs. Our team of design engineers, product engineers, project managers, and account managers are dedicated to guaranteeing a successful product launch.
Design for manufacturability begins with understanding your concept. It continues through design, prototype, and production phases of your project.
From print to prototype production, KI has the experience and expertise to support your design team. We have a solution-based design approach. We use a CAD system with portable and desktop Pro/Engineer capabilities as well as model-making to assist in product design. Mold flow analysis guarantees that our tooling is designed and built for optimum cost efficiency and the quality you expect.
Our engineers understand the raw material 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.
We work with our customer’s design team at the concept phase. This allows for the concurrent design of the part, the tool, and the manufacturing process. This approach provides the best design solution for our customers. Our process validation procedure provides the strict attention to detail that ensures a successful product launch.
