Commitment to Superior Quality continues at JK Prototype

Apr. 3rd 2018 – With an industry leading commitment to quality, service, and problem solving, JK Prototype prides itself in the ability to get the job done and they have chosen yet again to provide this quality with another Techni™ system.  Whether that job to be done is building custom tooling which must meet precision tolerances or stamping out tens of thousands of short-run production parts, JK is an industry leading job shop trusting Techni Waterjet™ to take them to the next level of superiority.

The team at JK added a Techjet 3000-X3®, complete with a Quantum Gen4 NXT® pump and additionally purchased a Quantum Gen2® 55® pump.

JK Prototype owner Doug Stedtefeld said,

“The pump is the number one reason we went back to Techni. Tanks are tanks; the Techni pump offers quietness and ease of rebuilding and that was the reason we went back to Techni. We checked out other suppliers, but nothing compared.” Doug went on to state, “I am talking with you now and I have both pumps running, yet my air compressor is all we can hear.”

Techni Waterjet™ prides itself in providing our customers with continued reliability and quality of product yet, above all, Techni realizes that relationship with our customers is key for long-term success.

From the master service team to executive support, Techni™ goes the distance for our valued customers. Doug of JK Prototype continued, 

“Jeff McAleer was at our very first install and returned to get us up and going with this system, too. His support was critical, and he did whatever we needed.”

Speaking towards the executive support offered, Mr. Stedtefeld stated,

“Having the ability to reach Kevin (President, Techni Waterjet, U.S.) anytime for anything was appreciated.”

JK Prototype handles a variety of materials such as cold rolled Steel, Stainless Steel, Spring Steel and Nickel-based Alloys, Copper and Copper Alloys, Aluminum and Phenolics. Their new Techni Techjet-X3® coupled with their GEN4 Quantum NXT™ pump will continue to support them in delivering pristine stamped and drawn parts from these materials that comply with customer specifications.
