In September 2008, we looked a Lighting Endcaps for the entertainment industry. Lighting endcaps are typically used to enclose the end of a light fixture. In this case our customer needed sets of a left endcap and a right endcap. This project required only 500 sets of parts each year. The engineer was unsure if Aluminum Die Casting was the answer to her dilemma. Many people were telling her that the minimum run for die castings was 1000’s not 100’s each year.
We looked at her project and told her, it fit in our niche of:
She placed the order with us in October 2008 for two cavity mold, die casting tooling, and for 200 sets of parts. She was in a hurry so she then asked if we would provide a few sets of parts she needed for an up-coming design show using SLA. Instead we gave her sample units in less than the 12 weeks we promised. She used our samples at the show. This saved her $2,000 in custom metal parts prototype part costs.
Kinetic Die Casting does this all the time for new customers. We accept orders and deliver the aluminum parts early. We specialize in delivering faster and better quality than many customers are getting from our competitors from here locally or from far away lands.
