KME not only offers parts in copper and copper alloys, from strips produced in our own foundry and in-house rolling mill, but also from steel, chrome-nickel-steel, aluminium and many other materials. Our services begin at your design stage, as we offer you all steps involved in the entire process chain as a cooperative partnership: Consultation regarding optimum material selection, production process best suited to the material, surface finishing, packaging, automation, all embedded into your internal downstream processes, as well as material recycling and metal handling. This “single-source” philosophy, closes the production cycle, saves interfaces, effort, and above all costs, all major factors in an increasingly demanding and competitive market.
We fulfil your quality objectives and requirements on environmental protection, industrial health and safety as well as the associated ecologically efficient use of energy by means of successful certifications in compliance with IATF 16949, ISO 50001, ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001.
Included in our customer portfolio, are many well-known clients from the automotive industry, the electrical and electronics industry and many other fields of application. All demanding precision products, manufactured to the highest quality standards, competitive terms and conditions and adherence to deadlines, all of which are pillars on which the solid growth of our company is based. The product portfolio ranges from bus bars, battery cell connectors, stamped parts, contact parts, press-fit technology, stamped grids and crimp contacts through to complete sub-assemblies.
As a licensee of press-fit technology using EloPin®, KME offers this connection technology for high-quality solderfree and gas-tight electrical connections in the field of PCB contacting with connectors. Stamped parts with pressfit zones are then usually further processed into hybrid parts or electromechanical assemblies.
Our state-of-the-art stamping machines, enable us to process materials with thickness from 0.1 to 5.0mm with stamping forces between 500 kN and 3,000 kN, in almost any required material: not only from copper and copper alloys produced at KME, but also from steel, chrome-nickel-steel, aluminium and many other materials.
