WHAT IS A KIT?
A kit consists of pre-cut parts that are shaped as necessary and then numbered to fit exactly into their designated places in the mold. The kit can consist of everything from sheets only to 3D shapes made with CNC routing. The kit design is based on customer requirements for weight, cost and quality, as well as geometry, manufacturing process and lay-up sequence.
WHY DO KITS MATTER?
By eliminating the on-site shaping and cutting of flat sheets, you can reduce build times and save labor and material cost. In addition, with the easy assembly and exact fit, you can achieve a consistently high quality in less time.
Getting your material delivered in a kit helps you:
- Boost performance in terms of weight, cost and quality
- Shorten lay-up time of the core in the mold
- Improve surface quality and decrease weight
- Minimize the amount of waste handling
- Reduce material stocks
THE SMC ITALIA KIT PROCESS
Kits can be complex. That is why SMC ITALIA uses a well-defined kit process that enables us to provide competitive offerings, top service and quick turn-around times for prototypes.
