Design Prototyping at KMF Group

Computer aided product design

KMF is an industry leader in the design and prototyping of metal components for fabricated sheet metal or machined parts. We offer a complete design to delivery solution; the design phase and introduction of new products are a critical part of our business relationships.

Through the use of the latest CADCAM software and skilled, modern precision engineering design techniques, our specialist in-house design engineers can produce fully specified and engineered product design drawings ready for their precision metal work manufacture and fabrication.

Design for manufacture (DFM) and best practice consistently deliver design enhancements, quality improvements, cost competitiveness, and shorter market lead times.

With more than 80% of a product's price and supply chain performance determined in the design-engineering phase, accessing the right partner who can deliver on all front is imperative. KMF has the people, quality, technology, and reputation in the market place to help you succeed.

Examples of high volume precision metalwork products that benefit from our design engineering process include kiosk and vending machine, point of sale units, processing/packaging systems, HVAC equipment and electrical enclosures.

In addition to our efficient design and prototype capabilities, KMF can easily scale up from a prototype project to full production quickly and effortlessly.
