Traditionally, manufacturers have taken to mechanical fasteners when bonding parts, such as screws, nuts, bolts and welds. As technology has evolved and processes change, adhesive methods have become more widely accepted in place of their mechanical counterparts. These solutions are more cost-efficient and offer several advantages over mechanical fasteners when it comes to overall performance […]
Plastics and other low surface energy materials such as polypropylene (PP) and polyethylene (PE or HDPE) and polytetrafluorethylene (PTFE) are known to present challenges when bonding to other surfaces. Due to the low melting point of these materials, it can be difficult to find a bonding adhesive solution that doesn’t compromise the material itself. While […]
Quality and Security Assurance Programs
K.R. Anderson is very proud of its Quality Assurance Programs. Many of our customers have K.R. Anderson at the top of their AVL for materials and converted parts specifically because of our quality record. Due to our regular and comprehensive training programs for all employees on process, inspection, and documentation, our quality incentive programs, and mature process standardization and documentation ensure every part is checked at least twice we are able to consistently maintain a 98% rating with all customers and a 95% internal quality rating.
K.R. Anderson is one of only a handful of NIST 800-171 complaint materials and fabrication suppliers supporting U.S. defense and government programs. K.R. Anderson is already in the process of updating its security systems to meet the new CMMC security standard.
K. R. Anderson, Inc. was established in 1968 as a sales and distribution organization supporting high tech markets in the Silicon Valley. In 1987, K.R. Anderson, Inc. added custom fabrication of materials to its offerings. Form in Place gasketing was a significant addition to the capabilities in 1997. KR Anderson, Inc. and Rocky Mountain based sister company, Krayden, merged into one company in 2013 under the Krayden name. Product lines in common to both companies were now supported by one company, Krayden. K.R. Anderson was spun off as an independent distribution and conversion company for its exclusive lines using the trade name KraFAB.
