At K S Tooling, Inc. we recognize that the speed at which a company can realize a product has a significant impact on the amount of market share it captures. Since developing a product can be a long and costly process we have created several tooling platforms which can be tailored to customer specific requirements.

Our platforms allow you to get to market faster and have a stronger product at the end of the day. Save money and time, and consolidate your partners list by choosing the K S Tooling, Inc. precision metal product development.

Model Shop

Quantities purchased from our Model Shop range from one or two parts to several thousand. Our precision manufacturing process includes WEDM or chemically etched blanks and single hit or multi-slide pneumatic Schmidt presswork. Prototype, test and reach your market segment by using the Model Shop to fine-tune your precision product development.

First to market is our most popular tooling platform. The reason for its success comes as no surprise; it is without exception the most cost-effective, robust tooling platform available for producing quantities ranging from a few thousand to over a billion. This program is offered in several popular sizes to accommodate even the most complex stampings.

Regardless of Order Quantity, you can reduce your costs by utilizing our new product precision manufacturing process.

The savings are generated through requiring only the product specific internal tooling to be purchased. The external carcass items such as Die set and matrix blocks exist as K S Tooling, Inc. assets. The design is completely universal allowing us to combine the inside tooling to the die set for a production order. Consulting with the manufacturer during the precision metal product development phase will typically result in tool cost savings.
