Manufacturing Process


Prokuma can work with the manufacturing process you have in place whether it is a repetitive, discrete, batch or continuous. Our experience in various environments allows us to present innovative solutions to meet your most complicated process requirements.


Prokuma's experience with dedicated equipment and processes allows us to provide the following services:

· Written equipment specifications for new equipment ·
· Modification and optimization of existing processes. As an example, implementation of automatic part feeding and loading for labor reduction savings ·


With Just-In-Time (JIT) requirements for products and equipment utilization at the front of production managers minds, our experience with flexible equipment and processes allows us to provide innovative solutions to meet these needs. Some examples would be:

· Quick change-over fixtures ·
· Quick change-over tooling ·
· Flexible feeder systems ·
· Implementation of robots ·


Prokuma has experience with batch system processes to provide the customer small runs as demand requires. Evaluation of the products we can design a system to allow for batch runs yet maximize the equipment utilization. An example of a batch system improvement would be replacement of pneumatic presses with servo presses for quality assurance enhancements and flexibility of the system.


Our experience with continuous systems allows us to design and/or provide process improvement initiatives to optimize production as well as quality.
