Based on strongly rooted skills in mechanical parts (plastic and metal), KeyTec has extended its service potential to the customer by taking over the responsibility to complete a part with additional manufacturing steps, to provide a sub assembly or even full end product assembly.

By combining our knowledge of mechanics, decoration, various assembly and connection techniques, packaging and logistics, KeyTec provides you with solutions that work for all your design, development and production needs, thereby constructing the bridge between your idea and your brand. For specific projects, KeyTec also handles PCB component mounting, wave-soldering and testing.

Assembly technologies

The list of various connection competences employed at KeyTec includes:

  • (Wave-)Soldering
  • Crimping
  • Screwing
  • Ultrasonic welding of plastic components
  • Ultrasonic welding to electrically connect components to lead frames
  • Riveting
  • Mechanical and hot insertion of elements
  • Laserwelding
  • Gluing

See the Solutions for examples of multi-technology parts.

Manual and Automated

As the series volume requirements differ per type of product, the additive (additional) processing and assembly steps are implemented in the production process both manual as well as (semi-) automated. This to keep the investments in line with the requested volume of parts. Also where the volumes increase, e.g. like ramp up or when a product is successful adopted by the market, the level of automation is adapted to the demand and the increasing labor cost halted. This results in an acceptable level of investment in the initial development phase of a product turning into a well given part price when the demand increases.
