Ensuring manufacturing competitiveness based on ‘being well prepared’
President Park has focused on the accumulation of wire machining technology since the company’s early days. Five or six years ago, he installed high-speed machining centres, and established a lineup of super-precise mould parts, thus improving the company’s product competitiveness. In particular, dozens of sophisticated machines, including wire machining tools, high-speed machining centres, CNC grinding machines, and 3D measuring machines, are the barometer for assessing the company’s super-precision mould machining technology. In addition, the clean working environment, in which temperatures and humidity are maintained at a constant, plays a crucial role in achieving differentiated production and timely delivery. “For small and medium-sized firms it is difficult to hire manpower. Thus, we can boost our competitiveness by streamlining, systemising and automating our production lines,” Park declared. PROTECH has been able to build up a strong reputation in mobile mould parts on the back of its excellent machining technology, primarily because Park has had good insights into market changes and made timely decisions. In addition, the company is adhering to its principle of thoroughly protecting the clients’ security and information in a relationship of strong mutual trust. All suppliers attach great importance to good prices, timely delivery, and quality. Thus, they have to look for methods of producing precise products rapidly and efficiently.
The small mould parts produced by PROTECH often have a tight tolerance of 5 microns: therefore, sophisticated machines and environments, which can enhance precision, are crucial to improving the company’s profits. As such, BLUM’s measuring systems – workpiece touch probes and laser tool measuring systems – are essential for manufacturing precision mould parts.
