AUTOMOTIVE TOOL MANUFACTURER OF CHOICE
Even today’s most utilitarian passenger vehicles are highly complex machines that are capable of performance benchmarks unimaginable just a generation ago. With each successive model year, automotive technology grows ever more advanced. At Knight Carbide, we rise to the challenge by engineering new cutting tool geometries to help achieve the desired cuts with flawless efficiency.
The auto industry relies on a broad network of certified parts suppliers to fabricate the many intricate components that comprise the engines and drivetrains of today’s automobiles. Those suppliers come to Knight Carbide for the tools they need to build quality parts with greater efficiency and optimal cost per part.
AN EMPHASIS ON PRECISION, REPEATABILITY AND TOOL LIFE
Knight Carbide has been a favored cutting tool supplier for OEM auto parts manufacturers since our earliest days of operation 50 years ago. Over the decades, the auto industry has pushed manufacturing to ever greater innovation. Meanwhile, Knight Carbide tools have kept pace, delivering ever-greater precision, new coatings and tooling methods and managing tolerances to +/- .0002. Only by giving our best can we help our clients achieve their own quality benchmarks in the most timely and cost-effective way possible.
STANDARD OR CUSTOMIZED INSERTS FOR SUPERIOR AUTO COMPONENTS
Among our extensive inventory of inserts, we stock automotive-specific tools for fabricating engine and drivetrain components, camshafts, gear cutting, wheel turning and a full range of threading and grooving inserts in both metric and imperial configurations.
But standard tools are just the beginning. Often, the complex, close-tolerance applications demanded by automotive parts manufacturing can be accomplished more efficiently with a custom cutting solution. And you couldn’t hope to be in a better place for that than at Knight Carbide, where we are renowned for our expertise in the creation of custom tool inserts that save time and money.
