New Foundry

The new addition is complete! We have recently expanded our Foundry department in to a brand new 10,000 sq. ft. building. We are now operating under a semi-automated Tinker Omega Fast Loop no-bake sand line. Our plaster department went through minor changes which has allowed us to operate in a more efficient manner as well. To support the increased molding capacity, we increased our metal capacity two-fold by integrating a new 1,100 lb. tipper furnace to our foundry.

Kand H Foundry

The new sand line has allowed K&H to lower costs while improving quality. Everything from surface finish to porosity levels has improved. We welcome any and all requisitions and hope to put your ideas in your hands. Please contact Colin Hogarth (chogarth@kandhprecision.com) for any and all of your Aluminum and Zinc prototype to production casting and machining needs.

Progress

With the project commencing May 1, the construction team has been working diligently to finish by December 1. The team has gone through many stages thus far, leading up to reaching our delivery date for the steel of August 15. As you can see in the pictures below, progress has been made and we are getting ready to erect the building. It is amazing to see our vision become a reality right before our eyes.

Exciting Future

Hello All,

I hope your first quarter went well; K&H has been on the verge of some major changes. We have recently purchased our neighboring building (17 High Street), and are impending breaking ground with our new project. We will tentatively be starting demolition next month and are shooting for a completion date of December. Our final construction will include a new 10,000 sq. ft. foundry as well as relocating our pattern shop and grinding department. With this state of the art facility, we will be able to not only provide better lead times, and lower costs, but also bring in a new machining center in the future. This is a major change for K&H Precision and we couldn’t be more excited about it! We will keep you updated, and please check out or new video of an aerial view of the new building which can be seen at [https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u48wC09QuOQ&feature=youtu.be]. You will notice the pull barn on the side, and gray brick on the back end – those will be the sections being demolished and replaced by the new foundry.

Kind Regards,

Colin R. Hogarth

Today's Prototyping Needs

At K&H, we specialize in prototyping and low volume production castings which allows us to be flexible and always ready for a new project. We have taken our specialization and made it possible for you to get your product to market fast and efficiently. If your part has potential to become a high volume component, our process can fill your need to bridge that gap between prototype and production.  When dealing with prototypes, it is very important to not only be critical to manufacturability and accurate to your final product design but also accomplish it in a timely manner. These are two things we believe we have mastered; they are only two of our strong points and things we pride ourselves upon. Having the capability of being a one-stop shop takes the middleman out of the equation and gives our customers the comfort and confidence through every stage of the project making it easy to meet customers’ needs.  With often required development modifications, your prototype tooling can be modified quickly, economically, and at any stage of your build. From our dedicated design team, our hard-working foundry, and precise machining team, we are poised to help you with any of your prototyping to low volume needs. Let us put your ideas in your hands!

Expansion Proposal

To all small manufacturing businesses:

I am looking for a couple of companies interested in teaming up to relocate in a larger facility. We are looking for companies having insight and see the value of being involved in a high-tech industrial center involving industries such as EDM, Rapid Prototyping, Turning, Laser Cutting or anyone understanding the value of such a Technical Center and offering a one-stop group of shops utilizing each company in offering a wide range of services. This new complex will have floor, office, and warehouse space. K&H will add a foundry and vertical CNC machining; there is power in numbers.

By viewing our 'Services' tab, you will be able to see all the services we can benefit your company with. From this deal, K&H is looking for companies who are willing to become part of a new manufacturing consortium here in the Greater Rochester Area. Working with K&H would provide your company with in-house, one-stop-shop production, and the ability to observe the entire process while it is happening. This is a phenomenal opportunity, and we appreciate all consideration. Let's bring manufacturing back home and improve local business!

Sincerely,

Steven R. Hogarth

Exciting news!!
K&H has purchased new software and is re-thinking our method of inspection. To further explain K&H purchased three seats of PC-DMIS for each of our CMM's and one off line seat for programming. This increases our inspection capacity along with eliminating inspection lead time! It is a major investment with big advantage to keeping K&H on the leading edge of technology.
