Potomac’s New InstaQuote Online System Leads Advanced Manufacturing at the Speed of Light
Speed is the hallmark of modern life, and has become even more important in getting innovative products to market. With 24/7 communication worldwide and better resources available for entrepreneurs, staying ahead of the competition is more challenging than ever before.
With speed at the center of our customers’ concerns, Potomac has recently added the online InstaQuote system to our website in order to exponentially hasten our commitment to producing products quickly while maintaining great quality. We aim to accelerate the advanced manufacturing experience for product development of medical devices, microfluidics, microelectronics, pharmaceuticals, cancer treatments and so much more via the new InstaQuote capability.
Our in-house software development team listened to the needs of our customers and developed an exponentially faster, easier quoting process for standard micro-manufacturing processes. Potomac President and CEO Mike Adelstein reiterates, “We are a customer-centric company and are always listening to the needs of designers, engineers and entrepreneurs in the field. InstaQuote is our answer to the increased speeds required in today fast-paced world.”
InstaQuote’s most powerful feature is digital analysis of drawings that identifies any issues in the design. Experience shows that a design flaw will slow down the process of getting a file into the manufacturing flow. Consequently, InstaQuote’s immediate identification and feedback of problems eliminates bottlenecks and allows the designer to align files with operating parameters. Once designs are optimized the quote can be generated online and the manufacturing process begins.
The InstaQuote system defines parameters for which the fast quote can be instantly generated but of course more complex parts, subassemblies, or complete products can also be quoted with the same attention to speed by working iteratively with our in-house design experts. Potomac also has standard materials such as Kapton in stock, further reducing lead times to deliver parts.
Scaling from prototype to production relies heavily on a design methodology that optimizes the design both for the specific application and for the manufacturing process. InstaQuote is a sure way to ensure your competitive advantage in the marketplace by radically speeding up your quoting process to be the best designs instantly into manufacturing production.
We are seeing so many emails and blog posts from companies that say: “We Stand With Black Lives Matter Protesters”. But when all is said and done, how does a company move beyond rhetoric to action? Saying you support the Black Lives Matter movement is a far cry from hiring and training black people locally…
Quality assurance is at the heart of everything we manufacture at Potomac. It is our attention to product and process control that ensures every microfluidic device, consumer product, medical device and electronic component meets our customers’ rigid standards. Manufacturing Microfluidic technology in particular requires strong quality processes. In order to fabricate high performing microfluidic devices…
Microfluidics is an evolving technology that enables scientists and engineers to perform molecular biology including DNA and RNA sequencing, PCR, and even whole transcriptome analysis more rapidly and at a lower cost than conventional technologies. Microfluidics technology leverages the manufacturing processes long utilized for the manufacturing of semiconductor (IC) chips to achieve the production, at…
