KAM continues growth with cybersecurity and quality assurance

January 5, 2022

Keselowski Advanced Manufacturing (KAM), Statesville, North Carolina, USA, reports that it has continued its growth in hybrid manufacturing with the implementation of its digital ProShop Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) for streamlined quality control, as well as end-to-end cybersecurity protocols.

In 2021, KAM introduced ProShop, digital control stations at each point of production which allowed operators access to drawings and builds to confirm dimensional aspects, access machining simulations, and sign-off on digital routers. Since its adoption, it is reported to have reduced lead times, improved efficiency and increased quality control.

As a reflection of the company’s interest in data protection, KAM has also implemented the Corvid Cyberdefense Haven Security Solution which supports network, email, and end-point security with a dedicated Security Operations Center. This military-grade system is a component of KAM’s NIST SP-800 171 compliance and the emerging CMMC 2.0 requirements.

“Having opened in 2018, KAM is ramping up quickly thanks to customer growth in the private space launch and prime defence industries. In order to continue expansion in 2022 and beyond, we knew we needed to work towards CMMC compliance, invest in cyber security, and roll out a digital ERP to satisfy the rigorous quality standards our customers expect,” said Brad Keselowski, owner and founder of KAM. “Providing a fully integrated AM supply chain for space, aerospace, defence and other precision industries is more than standing up the manufacturing capital investment – it is the digital standards and quality compliance behind a strong machinery complement that speaks to KAM’s commitment to quality.”

The company also increased its physical attributes with the adoption of twelve metal Additive Manufacturing machines from EOS and two from SLM, as well as pieces of milling and post-processing equipment.
