Engineering Services

At Kim Manufacturing, we have a dedicated staff of Engineers, including a PA licensed Professional Engineer, ready to provide a variety of Engineering Services. This can range from optimizing your design for our production A 3-D Model processes to a complete product design based on your concept. We also have extensive experience in certifying products to Telcordia, Universal Building Code and International Building Code seismic standards. We have access to a California Structural Engineer, if required.

If you want Kim to design your product, our engineers will work with you to create a product that will meet all of your requirements and use all of the efficiencies of our production processes to minimize cost and lead-time.

FEA ResultsWhether we design your product or you provide the design, we use the latest version of AutoCAD to layout each part and create highly accurate programs for our Computer Numerically Controlled Turret Presses.

If your product needs to meet seismic standards such as Telcordia, Universal Building Code and International Building Code, Kim Manufacturing can help. We have successfully certified many products to these standards over the years. We use Autodesk Inventor and Cosmos DesignStar to create detailed 3-D models of your product and analyze how it will handle the intense conditions required by these standards. Based on this analysis, we will determine what, if any, changes need to be made to the design. Where the standards allow, we can use this Finite Element Analysis to issue a report that your product meets seismic requirements. If a physical earthquake simulation test is required, we will produce a prototype of your product and take it to a testing facility for the test. We have a long-standing relationship with a major testing laboratory which can provide these tests.
