Prototek has recently added a new CNC Precision Machining Cell. The addition of this new cell coupled with our proven “rapid prototyping of precision machining Delivery Solutions” has been a great success. Prototek continues to invest in new technologies to maintain our reputation as the “Leaders in rapid prototyping of precision machining Prototyping”.

CNC programming requires technicians to use computers in order to control machine tools for the purpose of repeatedly manufacturing complex parts (usually metal). Using a program written in the complex G-Code notation, technicians ensure that all products adhere to the same precise measurements. CNC Mastercam was one of the first companies to produce the necessary software for this particular industry. Mastercam changed the way we produce and build. In a way, Mastercam helped pave the way for the last 60 years of industrial growth.
Prototek Precision Machining utilizes Solidworks, Pro e and AutoCAD to import you designed files. This allows us to program your parts by using a variety of software like Camworks, Gibbs cam, Mastercam and Winmax based on which program is suited best for your machined parts. We then send programs to our vertical maching centers or our turning centers; this process aids us in the rapid prototyping of precision machining production of your machined parts.
CNC milling machines or machining centers are computer controlled vertical mills with the ability to move the spindle vertically along the Z-axis. This extra degree of freedom permits their use in engraving applications, and also allows to create 2.5D surfaces such as relief sculptures. When combined with the use of conical tools or a ball nose cutter, it also significantly improves milling precision without impacting speed, providing a cost-efficient alternative to most flat-surface hand-engraving work.
Prototek Precision Machining presently has 3 CNC mills in which we can handle all of your CNC milling needs. We have a Hurco VM2 vertical machining center with a Hurco max control which can be programmed conversational or in g-code. With this machine we can handle your parts up to 40” x 18” x 18”. This machine features a 16 station tool changer, with the machining speeds up to 8000 RPM and it has a powerful 20 hp motor. We also have a Hurco BMC20LR with a ultimax 3 control which can be programmed conversational or in g-code. With this machine we can handle your parts up to 24” x 14” x 14”. This machine features a 16 station tool changer, with the machining speeds up to 6000 RPM and it has a 15 hp motor. We also have a 3 axis Kent knee mill. With this machine we can do larger parts then our machining centers because this machine does not have the guards around the machine. This machine has table travel of 30” in the X, 15.500” in the Y and 15” in the Z.
