KE engineering department offers plastic product design using the following processes:
- Injection moulding and vacuum and pressure forming
- Structural foam moulding
- Rotational moulding
Typical plastics offered include: ABS, FRHIPS, HIPS, PC-ABS, PP, PE.
Typical plastic products offered include Doors, Stability Feet, Caps, Profiles.
KE can reverse engineer metal products into equivalent plastic alternatives, locating webbing & back plates to optimise strength and aesthetics of show faces to ensure ease of assembly.
We maximise the efficiency of mould tools, including wherever possible, trim pieces and common parts. Our toolmakers refine the initial design using mould flow analysis software, centralising entries to ensure even material distribution and checking draft angles to ensure clean injection.
KE utilise rapid prototyping 3D printing to replicate small plastic parts.
Textured surfaces can be supplied to any Standex Pattern reference.
Typical lead times, tool production and first batches are 75 days from initial order.
KE have extensive experience of incorporating the following electrical components into our sheet metal products:
- Power distribution units (PDU’s)
- Cabling & cable management
- Electronic sub assemblies
- Thermal management, fans, heaters and sensors
