By leveraging its various capabilities, MKC is able to design a highly engineered or acquired sub-assembly solution consisting of multiple components, using the appropriate process technologies including High Pressure aluminum die casting and squeeze casting, to maximize performance and value for the customer. This broad range of integrated capabilities and MKC’s ability to provide complete system sub-assemblies are the Company’s significant competitive advantages in the metalforming industry.
Our customers rely on our extensive experience to assist with the best practices for pressure die casting while not compromising component design intent. We are here to assist from concept through finished product launch. Madison-Kipp considers our Program Launch Process a core competence. We adhere to the APQP standards and engage throughout the launch process driving milestones to completion on-time and on-budget. As always, zero defects is our ultimate goal.
- Minimize part and tooling complexities for a robust process.
- Key cast feature considerations for longest tool life to minimize program total costs.
- Accurate Control plans and Design Failure Mode Effects Analysis (DFMEA).
- Poka Yoke integration for Zero Defect Goal.
- Always considering our SmartWay Lean Manufacturing approach.
