New Zealand manufacturing icon, Dotmar Engineering Plastics continues to provide increased support to manufacturers and designers throughout New Zealand.
When businesses are faced with premature equipment, obsolescence or poor functionality due to worn or broken metal and plastic parts Dotmar can rescue the day.
A recent acquisition is digital measuring equipment from Kreon Europe. This very accurate piece of equipment removes all doubt when there is a requirement to measure and model a component.
Curves, tapers, radii, 3D shapes are easily measured and converted to solid files.
Older equipment may often contain obsolete parts and when they break there is no option but to remake them, to do this first they have to be accurately measured and drawn. Often when the worn, damaged or prototype components have to be remade it is discovered any drawings are possibly long gone and the original manufacturer closed up years ago and the only references are existing parts.
A regular request is the measurement of components onsite and the Kreon is able to be taken to sites anywhere in New Zealand and set up to measure parts in situ. The benefits are that the customer not only gets accurate measurements to +/-0.01mm but the machine downtime is greatly reduced, allowing quick return to production. Examples of where this feature has been utilised include bottling plants, paper mills, mines and anywhere there are large parts that may be heavy and difficult to move and transport. The Kreon has no size limits to what can be measured.
The complete measuring service includes providing a solid file in a range of formats from which to manufacture metal plastic or wooden components.
