Facilities

Kiosk Facilities - Come See The Difference Yourself

In-house services are all-inclusive, enabling KIOSK to control total project quality and timing.  The 115,000-square-foot manufacturing and development campus is 100% dedicated to self-service solution design, continuing a 20+ year business model.   Services are ISO9001:2008 and ISO14000 certified.  They include:

  • Comprehensive fabrication equipment for laser-cut metals, paint, and custom graphic art provide much lower costs, faster lead-times (prototype  & production), and full quality control.
  • Flexible “burst manufacturing” to accommodate a full range of volume needs (1, 10, or several hundred per week).
  • Turnkey Safety Agency Certifications
  • Extensive professional support teams in Engineering, Industrial Design, Software Development, Program Management, Manufacturing, Quality, and Customer Services. 

This “single roof” set-up enables KIOSK to maintain the agility / responsiveness of a small company, with the execution caliber of a large corporate entity.

Engineering

Custom Design? Bring It On

KIOSK is the World Leader in Custom Solution Design (well >50% of production).  Our team of Mechanical, Industrial, Robotic, and Software Engineers collectively provide the most sophisticated range of technical development skills available in the industry.  

Combining these specialized disciplines, KIOSK developed a proprietary design process (ISO9001:2008 Certified) that expertly navigates all the key considerations of a custom design experience.  This continually evolving tool leverages the design nuances and experience gained in thousands of prior designs, ensuring consistent first-pass prototype success.  This process tool accelerates time to market and eliminates costly rework steps. 

KIOSK designs from the inside-out, eliminating “one-size-fits-all” limitations.  Ongoing technology investments in CAD design tools and in-house prototype manufacturing equipment enable our Engineers to anticipate and lead all key elements of custom design (aesthetics, manufacturablity, field reliability, serviceability, and cost).    Learn much more about custom kiosks.

ADA Standards

Meeting ADA Standards

ADA Compliance is a universal design consideration for KIOSK Information Systems. All models have been designed to comply with the most recently implemented American (ADA) and European Disability Access guidelines. These guidelines are used to ensure accommodation of all self-service customers.

Certain models may require keyboard access or an ADA presentation option button on the user interface (simply lowers the transaction buttons).   

A KIOSK summary document of ADA design considerations is available here.  It contains overall design guidelines / considerations, as well as those for each KIOSK Standard Model: ADA Standards for Accessible Design Document.

Official ADA.gov regulations document download: 2010 ADA Standards for Accessible Design.

KIOSK’s expert Sales Representatives would be happy to answer any ADA clarifying questions during standard model selection, or custom solution design phases.

Quality

Quality and Environmental Responsibility

By definition, 24/7 uptime is the quality standard for kiosks. We recognize that quality in the field directly ties to tight QA process control in our factory.  KIOSK holds ISO 9001:2008 Certification on all customer-facing processes, bringing objective evidence of the highest measures of process and quality control.

Key ISO Certified Disciplines:

Design Engineering - 70+ design check points are considered to build quality control into the kiosk design itself.  Key design quality factors are methodically anticipated, rather than corrected in the field.

Manufacturing - before shipping, each kiosk passes dual quality checks (50 – 70 point mechanical / electrical).  All production is under one roof, ensuring total process control.

Field Support - all manufacturing and component records are bar-coded / serialized in the factory, providing accurate / on-demand field service records.

Safety

Safety Agency Certifications

To meet the highest safety standards, many clients require Underwriters Laboratories® (UL) Certification of system level safety before deployment.  Having worked with Underwriters Laboratories® for over 20 years, KIOSK is intimately familiar with streamlining the certification process.  KIOSK initiates the UL Certification filing documents on behalf of the customer so that parallel progress can be made on UL’s analysis cycle during the initial prototype build.  UL starts on the component evaluations and the initial report based on Engineering’s bill of materials and drawings.  As soon as the prototype is completed, KIOSK ships the unit to UL for final system level evaluation and testing required for certification (full mechanical and electrical).

By working in conjunction with UL in early prototyping stages, KIOSK is able to condense the overall delivery time for certified equipment and ensure certified field safety.

Other agency certifications including CE, FCC, TUV, CUL and NOM (typically for international deployments) are similarly managed by KIOSK.

Speed

Speed to Market

On Time and On Budget 

By utilizing proven modular design disciplines in both software and hardware, KIOSK can substantially shrink solution development efforts and timelines.  A modular approach enables clients to leverage the experience gained from thousands of prior deployments (enclosure design and software code elements), rather than adding time and money “re-inventing the wheel.”  

KIOSK teams nurture initial designs through small volume proto / pilot phases required in most new projects.  When the time comes, flexible "burst manufacturing" capability enables execution of steep production ramp volumes (up to hundreds / day) for nationwide staging and deployment.

Total in-house services from full manufacturing to application development ensure all tracks of your project are expertly managed in parallel; saving time, money, and hassle.

Buy America

Buy America

For an increasing number of customers, buying US manufactured goods is a key bid evaluation factor.  

KIOSK utilizes metals and components (to the extent possible) which are manufactured / sourced in America.  Design, manufacturing, integration, and factory support services come directly from our professional campus in Louisville, Colorado.  Meaning, the same experts who manufacture your product, also domestically support it.

 US sourcing can directly impact project success and total cost of ownership (TCO) in several ways:

  • Product lead time (initial manufacturing and ongoing deployment)
  • Centralized domestic parts logistics (supports consistent overnight resolution of field issues) 
  • Better deployment staging support 
  • Reduced shipping costs

Aside from better support and lower cost, US sourcing decisions directly impact domestic manufacturing jobs.  And - yes, it does matter.
