The same level of care goes into machining a production order as machining a one- off prototype.Part compliance starts with ProtoMed’s first control point, incoming inspection, where raw material is inspected, labeled and stored to maintain identification and traceability. Product conformance is verified at three separate steps during the manufacturing process:
1) First Article Inspection
2) In-process monitoring
3) Final inspection
Measurements are taken using our coordinate measuring machine (CMM) and standard, regularly calibrated measuring tools.Final inspection sample size is determined using a client specified sampling plan or ProtoMed’s internal sampling plan if not specified.
Consistency can be a challenge when a part moves from prototyping to production.ProtoMed minimizes operations with the use of 4th axis indexing and part specific tooling to maintain accuracy and repeatability.

WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY
“ProtoMed Engineering was instrumental in supporting the development of our ocular implant by providing exceptionally high quality parts with turnaround times that rivaled even that of an in-house machining expert. Communications and relationship management with ProtoMed was intuitive and ProtoMed never missed delivery deadlines and was often able to react on a moment’s notice to make changes. I highly recommend ProtoMed Engineering for any low to mid-range volume production of machined parts.“
