Dec-O-Art Case Study
Family Business Leads Through Innovation
Dec-O-Art was having issues with the tools being made on their CNC mill. They spent a lot of time re-making dies because they weren’t level and there was too much variation
in the tool. They realized that the mill that they had purchased was not ideal for their application and its limitations created a lot of inefficiencies. They needed an efficient and versatile CNC system that created reliably even parts with a surface finish so fine that it could not be distinguished from an actual chrome injection-molded part.
“Having this technology has been a huge leap for us as a company. I think the biggest advantage we’ve seen with the Neo is the reliability of the machine. Our prototype time is down 50%. The DATRON neo is 20% faster in cycle time with far better detail and quality in the finished part.”
