In 2008, KST started developing its cable tie product line. By 2010 KST had set up a nylon cable ties manufacturing facility. Today KST manufactures a comprehensive line of nylon cable ties, Mounting, Releasable, Heavy Duty, Markable, Plug, Push, Releasable Push Mount Cable Ties as well as Weather Resisteat UV Cable Ties.
Research and development
KST injection mold and cable tie product factory has an independent research team and a well-equipped laboratory that supports integrated capabilities for material analysis, product design, mold prototype design, mold processing, injection trial production, independent design capabilities, research and development team mentoring, as well as a fully equipped laboratory for verification and testing, that is also UL independent laboratory certified.
Materials & Equipment
Plastic products are produced using quality engineered plastics and plastic injection materials from premium suppliers.
In addition, we have invested in precision plastic extrusion and injection machines imported from Japan and Europe, ensuring the stability of production and quality. We have further automated the entire production line allowing us to achieve higher capacity. That means that we can achieve high customization even for an increasing number of small orders.
We use PA66 which is frequently used when high mechanical strength, rigidity, good stability under heat and/or chemical resistance are required.
From injection mold production, continuous reel product production, carbon embedded injection production, all of our product lines have achieved a high degree of automation including 2.5D CCD quality inspection equipment, and undergo prescribed industry-standard environmental, strength, material, and electrical testing processes.
Innovations in cable tie material and production processes have led to improved structural and tensile strength. Currently, KST has developed the only cable tie product on the market made from PA66 material, that meets the pull force requirements set by the UL 62275 standard, which requires testing to -20 degrees for mounting and -40 degrees in operation.
