Next Generation Proton Therapy

Pronova 3
A client developing the next generation proton therapy machine hired Performance Composites to design and engineer the covers and manufacture the tooling and panels. This medical machine utilizes large stationery wall panels as well moving nozzle panels that rotates 360 degrees on a 10 ft gantry. It was a complex design with 32 outer and inner covers that need to fit precisely and meet superior aesthetics expected on a high-tech medical device. In addition, the design had to meet FDA & UL requirements as well as mechanical loads, vibration, sound damping, fire retardant, ease of assembly and a tight budget. Performance Composite's engineering team worked closely with our client on the design and engineering and developed composite panel constructions that met all of the requirements. We made sample panels, tested them for life cycle performance, and selected the ideal construction. Also, taking advantage of our in-house painting capabilities, we helped our client's marketing department fine-tune the paint swatches and textures to achieve their target aesthetics. Once the design was frozen, Performance Composites made master molds from CAD files using a CNC router and made production composite molds. We fabricated first article panels and supported the client on the prototype machine assembly, fine tune the panel fit and finalized the paint color and texture. Then we made fixtures to locate all of the key features such as holes and trims and started production. This project was completed on a tight schedule and met the budget. This is one of the prime examples of how Performance Composites can partner with you on your next project from start to finish.
