MK Diamond Company Closed

Kinetic Die Casting Company started doing business and making die casting parts for MK Diamond Products in 2016, when Art Mold Die Casting Company Closed.

Then a few months later in 2017, Cox Die Casting Company closed. Cox Die Casting Company Closed. We received the majority of the die casting tooling from Cox Die Casting Company. I could not get anyone on the phone the last few weeks I have tried calling. I was getting a recording about the line is disconnected. When I called the 800 number, it went immediately to a busy signal. I sent numerous unanswered emails to many of the people I knew there, with no response. I drove down to their place of business on 4/09/24, and the building is closed down. I could not get anyone to answer the door. I found online details (January 2024 and February 2024) about a MK Diamond equipment auction where everything in the company was listed for sale. I also found a legal eviction process from their building, it is sadly clear that MK Diamond Products Company is Closed.

MK Diamond Die Casting Parts
MK Diamond Company History Remembered. San Francisco, circa 1860 – MK Diamond Products business started in San Francisco in 1868 by Joseph Musto, a fifth-generation Italian stone-cutter and tile-setter, whose ancestors were known as master craftsmen. He brought the skills of his forefathers to his new home in America and established the Musto Steam Marble Mill. The trademark of the business was its pledge to quality work and service. The Musto family believed that, good enough was never really good enough. It is from this work ethic that MK Diamond continues its unrelenting pursuit to producing quality products.

MK Products in Los Angeles, circa 1940 – In late 1919, Joseph’s son, Clarence, came to Los Angeles. By 1949, the newly named Musto-Keenan Company had gained a reputation for making top quality diamond tools to cut marble and tile faster and more efficiently. Beginning in 1977, and under the leadership of Robert J. Delahaut, the company moved in a direction that has established itself as a world leader for precision power cutting tools and diamond blades. We are committed to making our products and services the benchmark by which the rest of the industry will measure itself.

MK Diamond Products had a lot of off shore competition so they had a difficult time financially. MK Diamond always gave feedback on their production part’s needs and communicated very well with our company, Kinetic Die Casting Company. We will miss the MK Diamond company and the people that worked there.

    The Advantages of Aluminum Hardware Brackets over Plastic

    Advantages of Aluminum Hardware Brackets over Plastic:


    • Plastic is an insulator, while aluminum is electrically conductive. Plastic will need a special coating to achieve a similar result with aluminum (albeit inferior).
    • Plastic does not ground, thus it requires extra grounding metal straps. Aluminum, being a metal, is easily grounded.
    • Aluminum has a natural shield against RF and EMI, preventing radio frequency. Plastic does not block radio frequency.
    • Aluminum brackets are much stronger than plastic injection moldings.
    • Aluminum metal is stiff, while plastic injection moldings are too elastic for numerous applications.
    • Plastic molded parts do not do well for chrome plating.
    • Plastic can not obstruct electromagnetic emissions.
    • Plastic does not do well with many coatings, while aluminum brackets do better on the department.
    • Aluminum parts are stable, whereas plastic injection parts are not quite dimensionally stable.
    • Plastic molded parts do not do well in conditions of hot and humid temperatures. Aluminum hardware is more heat resistant.
    • One big problem with plastic is that they are not recyclable. Only less than 3% of the plastic will be recyclable. Nearly all metals, aluminum die castings in particular, are always readily recyclable.
    • Aluminum die castings are non-hazardous and pose no problems to the government.

    Aluminum Handles in 2022

    There are many types of handles—positive locking, extruding, folding and standard square, oval and wire type. Most handles are made in brass, stainless steel and aluminum. The most common is the aluminum handle ware.

    Die cast aluminum handle ware are made from molten metal forced into mold cavities. The die casting process is beneficial if you are producing large quantities of small to medium sized handles with good details.

    Prior to the introduction of die casting company, most handles are made by welding several pieces together, which is time consuming, costly, and labor extensive. Die cast aluminum handle ware are made faster because they can be produced in net shape, meaning there is no welding or drilling methods needed, saving time, money, and energy all together. Aluminum handle ware can be produced from a few hundred to a few thousand pieces daily.

    Aluminum handle ware can be powder coated and anodized without complications. They are also cheaper compared to steel and lighter than their steel fabricated counterparts. They can also be decorated at a faster rate because decorative features can be easily added to the mold cavities. In most cases, aluminum handle ware can be die cast stronger than stainless steel handles because the former can be designed with strengthening ribs.

    Aluminum handle ware include handles kitchen utensils, doorknobs, fold, locks, lifts, cabinet and door hinges, door bolts and stops, furniture handles, hooks, faucets, shower handles, garden furniture handles, aluminum sliding doors and windows handles, glass door handles, decorative handles, and many more for residential and industrial purposes.

    Kinetic Die Casting manufactures products like aluminum hardware, and aluminum boxes. If you would like more information on Kinetic Die Casting, please visit our website:Kinetic Die Casting Company
