Dec-O-Art Case Study

Family Business Leads Through Innovation

Dec-O-Art had issues with the tools being made on their CNC mill. They were spending too much time re-making dies because they weren’t level and there was a lot of variation in the tool. The mill that they had originally purchased wasn’t a good fit for this application. They needed an efficient and versatile CNC system that could consistently mill even parts with a perfect surface surface finish.

“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.”

The Industry

The Customer

Dec-O-Art is based in Elkhart, Indiana manufactures a wide variety of labeling and branding materials, including 3-dimensional graphics.

The Challenge
Find a CNC System That Produces a Superior Finish

Deco-O-Art uses high-frequency forming to create 3-dimensional decals, badges, or nameplates that can look like chrome injection-molded parts, so any surface imperfection is unacceptable.
