Check out the Kaysun coverage in Design World
magazine, detailing our use of advanced materials from Sabic to solve unique design and manufacturing challenges for a family of handheld medical devices. Let us put our expertise to work for you!
Kudos to the Society of Manufacturing Engineers’ Education Foundation(SMEEF) for launching its “Manufacturing is cool” website to help kids get a behind-the-scenes look into the significance and fascination of manufacturing. The Manufacturing is Cool site provides an inside look at how kid favorites – such as snacks, fashion, cars and cell phones – are designed and produced by engineers. Check out the video from Wisconsin’s own Harley Davidson, showing the engine assembly process for the V-Rod!
We at Kaysun know manufacturing is cool — we love our work! That’s why we’re working in the local community to host school visits to our plant and encourage the next generation to pursue a rewarding and fulfilling career in manufacturing.
Btw, we found this site on Leslie Gordon’s “From Shop Floor to Software” blog on MachineDesign.com. Great work, Leslie!
Following up on my previous post that referenced Kaysun’s early history as a hobby started at the founder’s kitchen table – check out these photos and follow this link to an eBay auction of a toy car model made by Kaysun in 1954! What an interesting and rewarding journey it has been for the company since then. Less than 60 years later, we are now a leading supplier of complex plastic products and components for world-class transportation companies such as Gates and Bendix.
Check out the recent “Opinionator” blog by Allison Arieff on the New York Times site that looks at the impact plastics are having on design. It’s a very interesting piece, focused on consumer goods primarily — the work of Phillipe Starck, an exhibit at the Cooper Hewitt museum — but it also questions the ethos of design for design’s sake (creating a need and filling it) vs. starting with the need and finding the optimal design solution — which is what we do every day. As I pointed out in my response, “For industrial designers working with plastics, elegance comes in the form of fewer, more complex parts that save manufacturing steps and reduce material use. Or the creation of a durable, glossy finish that will stand up to harsh chemical cleaners or the high temperatures of an autoclave during repeated sterilizations. “Click here to read the full story and all the responses.
Interesting article on the Medical Products Manufacturing News blog about college students at Rice University designing a functioning centrifuge from a plastic salad spinner and yogurt containers, all for less than $30 total. What a great reminder of American genius and creativity — the kind of innovation in product design that is not only critical to advancing medicine but also to driving our entire economy!
And for us at Kaysun, it’s also a reminder of our start more than 60 years ago – as a hobby venture at the founder’s kitchen table. Today we have the privilege of helping leading medical device suppliers such as Smiths Medical design and manufacture innovative and economical products. Clickhere to read about Smiths Medical. Three cheers for innovation. We thrive on it.
