K&K acquires Automated Metal Tech.

K & K Industries, a laser cutting and metal forming job shop in Bellingham, Washington, has acquired Automated Metal Technologies located in Redmond, Washington.
Through this acquisition, K & K Industries has added an additional 8500+ sq. ft. of manufacturing capacity, as well as new equipment and technology. Automated Metal Technologies specializes in expedited prototype manufacturing and follow-on production quantities in less than two weeks.
This new capability adds to the K & K Industries custom sheet metal fabrication processes that utilize laser punches; press brakes; hardware insertion machines; MIG, TIG, and spot welders; and a wide graining machine.
The K & K Industries lasers can cut up to a thickness of 1 in. for mild steel, 0.5 in. for stainless steel, and 0.25 in. for aluminum, resulting in minimum parts handling downstream of the cutting operations, while the addition of the extra shift optimizes usage.
