When manufacturing mission-critical parts, Protomatic’s “Life-Saving Precision” is of paramount importance.
On March 12, Congressman Tim Walberg and District Representative Charles Bogren visited Protomatic during their travels around South East Michigan. They chose to visit Protomatic because they heard from several sources that Protomatic was expanding capacity and adding employees.
Measuring texture, form and contour simultaneously on the inside of complex surfaces was next to impossible without destructive sectioning (cutting the part in half) a sample part and inspecting with an optical comparator.
Here at Protomatic, we are always curious about what the parts we make look like at the microscopic level. Sure, it’s overkill at times and may be too much information, but by understanding the microfinish we put on a part and the impact it has on the part function, we are able to improve our customers’ final product.
In the spirit of the season, we thank you for your business and wish you all the best for the holidays and 2013. Everyone at Protomatic thanks you for giving us the opportunity to serve you in 2012.
Bill Wetzel, who founded Protomatic and lead it to the forefront of the prototype manufacturing industry, passed away on July 3, 2012. Bill was 78 and lived in Dexter, Michigan. His death was the result of a 7-year battle with lung disease.
