Ross Ortman, President and founder of Dakota Digital, is pictured in his office.
You can usually find him on the go, overseeing all aspects of the business.
Our highly skilled production crew handles the assembly and testing of every product.
Most every aspect of manufacturing is handled in-house to ensure stringent quality controls.
Our large shop area contains state of the art CNC milling centers and turning lathes along with various other metal fabricating equipment. Stacks of aluminum await their fate. We turn, mill and finish the instrument bezels and housings along with the other aluminum items we sell.
4'x8' capacity CNC router is utilized for processing HDPE and Polycarbonate plastics.
Much of the aluminum ends up "on the cutting room floor" as you can see from the chips in one of our machining centers.
Our printer makes high-resolution prints using CMYK and white. It then cures the ink instantly using UV light.
To make the instrumentation lenses, plastic sheets are engraved and cut with precision lasers to ensure quality and accuracy in the manufacturing process. Most of our instrumentation uses a lens material with a scratch resistant coating, with many applications adding a non-glare finish.
The new Research and Development laboratory allows access to vehicles for extensive testing. The laboratory contains a four-post lift, in-ground dyno, climate chamber, rapid prototyping maching and a full complement of necessities.
