At KeyTec,we will optimize your design for the best EFFICIENCY and QUALITY and then translate it into state-of-the-art tools and processes.
Design for Manufacturing: We support your product design with manufacturing in mind, to reach lower production costs without compromising on quality.
Design for Assembly: Similarly and based on our knowledge of the components, we can aid in designing your product, focussed on minimizing the number of parts and parts handling, which will enhance the production process robustness.
Design for Sustainability: KeyTec takes the responsibility for our environment by introducing during the initial design phase:
At KeyTec, we use our experience in tooling and producing components to develop for our customer new ideas and technologies and realize an ever better solution.
Product Development: KeyTec will partner with you to optimize your design for chosing materials with the right characteristics and realize the required component performance. Our input as experienced manufacturers will help you identify the suitable design.
Process Development: KeyTec has ample experience in choosing the optimal production process for your design. Either in our vast array of in-house proceeses, or with our Specialist partners, we will find the complete solution for you.
KeyTec, together with its partners, will manufacture prototypes at the lowest possible throughput time.
By quickly bringing your designs to life with the help of our proto toolings and manufacturing, you will be able to judge the new product in the initial development stage, before deciding on design and tools for mass production. Depending on your requirement, proto tools can also be made in such a way that initial or lower volume mass production can be run with them.
KeyTec designs and manufactures METAL DIES and PLASTIC MOLDS, either in-house or with its partners worldwide.
Our in-house staff can make designs—and the further needed design changes—all under our control. In metal and plastic component manufacturing, the tool design will determine the manufacturing efficiency and quality, which is why KeyTec has chosen to nurture this in-house. In China, KeyTec has developed both in house tooling skills and a strong network of external tool suppliers, available for worldwide usage. Our toolshops are run by highly trained experts, and equipped with state-of-the-art machinery for all needed processes. Our quality and measuring rooms are as-one with the toolshop organisation, ensuring fault-free design and 0 PPM quality.
KeyTec covers the field from pilot production or small series production to highly automated mass production.
In the initial pilot phase, top engineers will guide the first production runs, or prepare for transfer to the local production centres, never leaving your product out of sight until full released mass production is guaranteed.
KeyTec has production locations in The Netherlands, Czech Republic and China. Projects can be ramped-up in The Netherlands and after that transferred to low-cost countries.
Transfer of projects is a unique service KeyTec The Netherlands can offer you. For initial design, development and prototyping we work together with the KeyTec International Development Centre in Eindhoven. Pilot production can be arranged in the production location in Sittard, The Netherlands where after mass production can take place in a low-cost location. By doing so customers receive immediate cost benefits.
