We purchased this new machine from the same company that produced the “Tesla Giga Press Die Casting Machine” used to make Tesla cars. Of course, our machine is about 10 times smaller than the 4,000 Ton Giga Press.

The automation on the machine makes die casting parts more consistent in quality and quantity. This new 2024 die casting machine will give Kinetic Die Casting Company opportunities to produce better quality die casting parts for our manufacturing customers by using new machine technology and better hydraulics and metal pressures. With our additional die casting production capacity, this new machine will also give our customers faster die casting part deliveries.

B. Bunch Company Closed

Kinetic Die Casting Company first started making aluminum die casting parts for B. Bunch in 2004 when C&D Die Casting Company Closed. B. Bunch Company would buy about 500 aluminum die casting parts a year or every two years. Last year, 2023, I received a call telling me that B. Bunch would be closing. I was again very sad that a great American manufacturing company would be closing.

“B. Bunch Co., Inc. shipped its first fan folding machine on April 21, 1968.

B. Bunch, as a manufacturing company customer, always paid their invoices for die casting parts timely. B.Bunch gave very good feedback on their production part’s needs and communicated very well with our company, Kinetic Die Casting Company. We will miss the company and the people that worked there.

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, as a manufacturing company customer, purchased a lot of die casting parts from Kinetic Die Casting Company. They usually bought 300, 500 or 1000 die casting parts at a time.

154810 Guard Casting
159487 Switch Box Casting
159539 Switch Box Cover Casting
159540 Actuator Lever Casting

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.
