What They're Saying
“There are many companies in the rapid prototyping business that are automated and there’s no personal interface. That's the big difference between ProtoCAM and other companies.” — Jim Eldon, Design Associates
“When we need to make a change, ProtoCAM always accomplishes it accurately. We see the results we planned on consistently. They do a very good job providing quality products.” — Rory Kiphart, Biomet
“ProtoCAM's turnaround times are exceptional, and their prices compared to others are always better. There's a lot more value added in working with ProtoCAM.” — Matthew Bellenoit, B. Braun Medical
“ProtoCAM's best attribute is their attention to detail and customer service. Their willigness and desire to keep in touch with me is impressive, and physical walkthroughs ensure me quality standards are being met.” — Todd Frick, Clair Brothers Audio Systems
“I’ve worked with a lot of different rapid prototype houses and I've consistently ended up back at ProtoCAM. Quality is key and they deliver consistently. They’ve given us a significant advantage over our competitors.” — Dan Dunham, XOS
At ProtoCAM, we’re committed to educating our rapid prototyping and additive manufacturing customers.
Below, you’ll find videos outlining the some of the processes we use to create highly accurate prototypes and finished products extremely quickly.
Stereolithography (SLA) Video
See stereolithography / SLA technology in action! This computer-generated animation demonstrates the actions of the SLA machine. The laser can be seen tracing each layer of the part, as the part is lowered into the resin. The completed part is then raised out of the resin tank, ready to be used.
Room Temperature Vulcanization (RTV) Molding Video
This animation shows the various steps taken when creating an RTV mold. First, risers are put on the part to allow air to escape from the final mold. A thin film is attached to the part, which will act as a seam for the final mold. A box is built around the entire structure, and it is filled with silicone rubber. Once the silicone rubber has cured, the box and risers are removed, the mold is opened at its seam, and the original part is removed. Any type of urethane can now be injected in the mold to create an exact duplicate of the original.
