SIMULATION AND TOOL END-TO-END PROCESS DESIGN
KMPL, with an aim to be self-contained in every aspect, has a developed capability of end-to-end process Design and tool manufacturing in-house.
KMPL has variety setup of CAD CAM simulation softwares which we use for accurate end-to-end process Design of products & its tooling. KMPL’s simulation ability aids to determine the considerations for a product to be manufactured. With help of KMPL’s abilities each and every aspect of the dynamics of the product manufacturing process is taken into consideration and this helps to understand the modes of failures which are possible to happen during the development. Understanding the different aspects of the product and end-to-end process Design the process based on the considerations is one of the most adorable characteristic of our team to make the product development cycle hustle free.
One of the most important advantage of our simulation and end-to-end process Design capability is that with our capability we always tend to explore new possibilities in which the product can be developed thus providing customer a better solution with added benefits.
Based on the simulation outputs, product specifications & end-to-end process Design aspects tool manufacturing is done in-house for MIM as well as Forging. In-house tool end-to-end process Design capability serves as open platform for design flexibility and reduction in lead time for tool end-to-end process Design.

KMPL with help of in-house simulation and engineering expertise with cutting edge technology of MIM serves as medium of value addition to our customer. With help of MIM complex parts can be manufactured through a MIM process eliminating the numerous stages of processing required for manufacturing through conventional methods. Also with help of modern cutting edge technology, integration of various assembly parts / manufacturing processes into a single process is possible along with generation of minute detailing of the features over the parts. Thus providing value addition through soft as well as hard benefits to the customer simplifying the supply chain management.
Kalyani Medicomp hosts an in-house tool room facility which can develop tools for MIM as well as forgings at a rapid pace so as to aid faster developments of customer. In order to cater the requirements of complex and precise tools KMPL holds advance machinery capable of meeting the precision requirements.
KMPL with its in-house tool room facility as well as well sound vendor base for tool development, has advantage of assigning the priority to the tool development as per customer project timelines and criticalities ensuring the tool development is done without delay and as per timelines.
KMPL has all the operations required for tool development in-house so that the multiple operations during the tool development run in parallel reducing the tool development time.
Inspection of tool post manufacturing is also carried out with recommended methods like 3D scanning, CMM inspection, etc. to ensure tool manufacturing is done to required end-to-end process Design standards.
Advantages of in-house tool room facility:
- Rapid tooling development
- Better control over tool quality
- Immediate support over tooling modifications as required / flexibility in modification of tool during trials
