KeyTec has an extensive range of automatic pressing & -bending machines. High volume products for various industries such as telecom, lighting and automotive are produced on these machines.
Typical set-ups for automatic presses producing in this case products for the automotive industry.
Automatic ‘Bihler’ bending machines for producing high volume, complex, folded metal parts.
Dedicated machinery for the production of 700 million battery pins per year.
For the manufacturing of small series of deep drawn and stamped products, we have a wide variety of machines available.
Up to 30 machines are available for manufacturing small stamped products. Capacities ranging from 5 to 32 tons.
Hydraulic deep drawing is done on machines up to 250 tons capacity. Larger sized products can be stamped on 10 machines with capacities from 63 up to 125 tons.
Product quality and – dimensions are constantly checked.
For machining (semi-) finished products, KeyTec has a fully equipped machine shop available. Lathes, milling-, welding and grinding machines are staffed by experienced operators.
Low- and high volumes, small- and big plastic products, it can all be produced with the available KeyTec injection moulding equipment. In total 20 injection moulding machines with capacities from 15 up to 110 tons.
KeyTec in the Netherlands has available: thermoplastics, thermo set, 2 K technology, micro moulding, insert-/outsert moulding plus manual and robotized assembly cells.
KeyTec The Netherlands has a long-lasting experience in the Insert- & Outsert Moulding technology. Metal parts are automatically inserted into the mould, after which the plastic is injected and enclosing the metal part.
KeyTec’s customers in this field are coming from the automotive- and lighting industry.
Based on strongly rooted skills in mechanical parts (plastic and metal), KeyTec has widened its service potential to the customer by taking over responsibility of the total sub assembly or even full end product assembly.
By combining our knowledge of mechanics, decoration, metal and plastic, KeyTec provides you with solutions that work for all your design, development and production needs. KeyTec The Netherlands can offer you assembly, packaging and logistical support, thereby constructing the bridge between your idea and your brand.
KeyTec applied its expertise to the healthcare field by manufacturing a high precision endodental instrument combined with accessories.
Another excellent example of KeyTec’s Assembly capabilities is below scanning module, to be used in handheld bar-scanners.
We have a broad experience in the use and application of less standard materials and exotic alloys. We perform deep drawing, stamping, laser welding and turning on metals and alloys like:
Kovar or Fernico, Titanium,Oxygen free Copper, pure Nickel, Molybdenum, and Nitinol
On the plastic molding side we produce products, utilizing materials as Tefzel, LCP’s, PEEK, HSG (high specific gravity material), electrical and thermal conductive polymers, shielding polymers, antimicrobial polymers etc.
Below you find an overview, where we highlight some of the rather unique features of some of the materials we are able to process for you.
HSG compounds or high specific gravity compounds, make it possible to use plastic molding techniques to manufacture parts with a specific gravity up to 10 g/cm3 . These materials can have shielding and inertia performance comparable with lead.
As they are injection moldable, this reduces or eliminates secondary machining or assembly operations and cuts cost.
Where the use of lead creates environmental issues, this might be a perfect solution to make your product green, while at the same time, HSG compounds can also help you to incorporate highly specialized properties including X-ray shielding, X-ray opacity, noise attenuation and "soft" magnetic properties.
We are using HSG materials in the field of medical applications.
Electrical conductive polymers
New electrical conductive compounds for injection molding are now available, with improved conductive and shielding properties, where at the same time the amount of filler materials and thus the weight and the costs of the compound have been dramatically reduced.
Through the use of novel mixing techniques for the carbon nano tubes and the synergistic combination of carbon nano tubes , intrinsic conductive polymers and steel fibers, new levels of conductivity and shielding are attainable at lower filling rates.
