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.
The Protomatic Manufacturing System now has its first robot. The setup is based on a Haas VF-2SSYT 5-Axis Vertical Machining Center (VMC) combined with the Midaco Corp. 6-axis “Robotic Part Loading/Unloading system”. Together, they deliver an actual 11-axis control system.
Protomatic recently added the ability to micro deburr small parts. This addition, a machine, known as “The sPINner”, uses a circulating magnetic field and steel pins as media enabling us to deburr small details without altering the dimensions of a part.
