The Protomatic blog, “Precisely Speaking,” is where you’ll get useful information on all aspects of precision CNC machining.
Protomatic adds facilities to help...
Protomatic has expanded capacity since being identified by the State of Michigan Innostate Program as one of 30 companies positioned to help entrepreneurs take product concepts into prototypes and low-volume manufacturing.
There is nothing like the need to add more capacity and we at Protomatic thank all of our customers for helping us grow. To continue providing top-quality customer service, we recently added a new Mazak Quick Turn (manufactured in USA) to our arsenal.
I’ve always felt that there was a big difference between what a company does and why they do it. It seemed that the passion we put into our work at Protomatic was every bit as important as the precision CNC components we produced.
Today’s newsletter is the first in a series of “Behind the Scenes” considerations when hiring a machine shop. This series will focus on important aspects to think about when choosing the right shop for a specific project.
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.
As with any company, our success is a reflection of all the people that have worked together in creating our products. Protomatic recognizes and thanks all of our suppliers for the high standards they have set to produce world class parts at competitive prices.
