WHO WE ARE
A precision material converter, KLINGER IGI is recognized in the Pacific Northwest and Rocky Mountain regions for excellence in custom and precision parts fabrication. We are an AS 9100 and ISO 9001:2015 certified build-to-print manufacturer of highly engineered parts. Typical parts crafted from standard and specialty materials include thermal interface and gap pads, RFI and EMI shields, vibration and sound dampers, shims and spacers, washers, seals, and a wide variety of custom and industrial gaskets. These technically superior products are formed by die, flash, router, laser, and water jet processes. The result is a quality part that is often designed to survive challenging mechanical and environmental conditions. For example, we routinely supply parts that must operate in extreme temperatures and pressures, contain electromagnetic and RF emissions, dampen intense vibrations and noises, and transport dangerous media like chemicals and gasses.
Our parent – KLINGER International – is a top international leader for sealing, fluid control, and instrumentation solutions. Because of its global client base, KLINGER is widely recognized for delivering trusted products for petrochemical, chemical, industrial, infrastructure and transportation applications. Pioneers in gasket technology, KLINGER was founded in 1886 and remains a family-owned business. Today, over 40 companies comprise the KLINGER group, positioning more than 60 manufacturing, distribution, and service hubs worldwide. More than 2,300 team members are in the KLINGER family of companies. For further information, please visit www.klinger-international.com.
WHY WE'RE DIFFERENT
KLINGER IGI is not a run-of-the-mill ‘cutter’. We’re specialists, and we tend to take on tough fabrication jobs that involve exotic materials or parts with challenging geometries and tolerances. As such, we apply our advanced manufacturing equipment and machine operators to process a broad range of standard and high-tech materials. Additionally, we don’t hype one material brand over another because we’re ‘materials agnostic’. That means we’ll propose options for technical performance and pricing – which is something you generally won’t find at either a material supplier pushing its own fixed selection of products or an inexperienced material converter peddling its own limited capabilities. Additionally, our AS 9100 quality systems certification distinguishes us from the rank-and-file material converter by assuring we provide an elevated level of quality assurance to all customers. Taken together, that's why we're recognized as a precision material converter.
WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT FROM US
Technical and Application Consultation
KLINGER IGI's skilled sales and application engineering team members are on call to solve material selection, fabrication technique, and other challenges that our customers occasionally face in their custom parts sourcing. This service benefits our customers by providing well-researched recommendations that help achieve mutually important quality, performance, delivery, and pricing goals.
The team's approach is a collaborative one that is optimally engaged during the customer's specification process. At that time, we can contribute our specialty material sourcing and precision fabrication expertise to aid the longevity of our customer’s engineering designs.
We frequently work with new product introduction teams in prototyping activities as well. Such early engagement of our services prepares us well to inherit production volumes of the designed parts at our AS 9100, ISO 9001, and ITAR registered USA manufacturing facility.
Expert Material Procurement and Precision Parts Fabrication
Our OEM and Tier 1 manufacturing customers specify materials and designs for these custom parts. We then source the materials and cut them to the critical dimensions and tolerances those customers require in service to the highly regulated aviation and aerospace, electronics, medical, and industrial markets.
Our worldwide network of material suppliers meshes with our advanced manufacturing competencies to provide superior resources to best meet a custom fabrication customer's needs. Yet as we've seen from time to time, even the best raw material sources may sometimes be challenged by delivery and price requirements. During those times, our application engineers and purchasing team members collaborate to identify and propose alternative sources for a customer's consideration. And because we are well-equipped with a variety of advanced material conversion machinery, we can implement such material or supplier source transitions with ease in our CNC waterjet, laser, router, and high speed die cutting workcenters.
After Sales Service
The quality promises of KLINGER IGI don't stop at the product. Our customer service team provides after-the-sale services targeted at achieving customer satisfaction and enhancing the customer experience. All of us at KLINGER IGI are committed to serving and attending to our clients throughout the product lifecycle and beyond.
