At Prodigy, safety and service to our customers is of the highest importance. We want to make sure each of their individual needs is met and that we are completing each project with the greatest efficiency. One way to ensure we follow through on this promise is by investing in new machinery. The world of mold-making is ever-changing, so we need to make sure we are staying on top of all the new technology and industry advancements.
We recently invested in a Makino Electrical Discharge Machining (EDM) system, as well as an EROWA tool changer. To better understand what these investments mean to you our injection mold-making process and to our customers, let’s take a closer look at each:
Makino EDM System
Our Makino EDM system is one of a kind. Makino has a strong name in the EDM industry, with more than 140 patents on all their designs combined. They are a world leader in EDM technology, consistently striving to provide faster processing times and pristine surface finishes, all of which we have been able to witness first hand after implementing their technology. Their advanced technology allows us to complete even the most complex projects, allowing us to remain competitive. Makino’s proven turnkey engineering solutions have provided us with EDM solutions that help further reduce our operational costs.
EROWA Tool Charger
The EROWA tool changer has allowed us to leap even farther forward in our productivity. It gives us the ability to use more of a variety of tools, in turn allowing us to carry out a wider variety of operations. This increases our flexibility and makes it easier for us to change heavy and large tools, and permits the automatic renewal of cutting edges. EROWA is a company that stands behind their products and continually strives to produce products that help companies achieve higher efficiency--to us this ultimately means they will continue to grow with us as a company.
In implementing both of these technologies, we’ve improved our overall processes as a company, we work more efficiently when developing products for our customers and we ultimately keep our costs down, which helps us to remain competitive in an ever-changing market. As our industry continues to evolve and desire advancements, our hope is to continue to implement new technology and be a leader in efficiency for our market.
