Throughout our history, we have held the position of automation innovators for the powdered metal industry. From the early days of Keystone—and continuing today—whenever a necessary technology was unavailable, we set out to create it.
In developing new industrial automation capabilities, our motivation is to stay true to our purpose: doing what is right to serve the customer. In some cases, automation projects come from direct customer requests. The goal is always continuous improvement: to provide a more capable, efficient, or cost-effective operation.
Some of our achievements include:
Multiple-coil induction heat treating units
Presses, from 3 ton to 1,650 ton CNC
Although we emphasize customer satisfaction, we remain aware of the potential effects of industrial automation on our employees. We view automation equipment as a way to raise the ability level of our company and the communities we belong to.
