Protomatic specialises in precision computer numerical control (CNC) machining for prototype and mid-volume projects.
Our services offer support for commercial, private, space exploration or military applications, with manufacturing precision components for various applications such as engine, fuel delivery, energy systems, optics, radar, brackets, mounts, safety, and electronic controls.
High-precision machining supporting the airforce sector
Protomatic is a full-service shop that offers subtractive style 3-5 axis CNC milling, 2-8 axis CNC turning, 6-axis robot, additive Cold Spray machining, 4-axis laser marking, various specialised inspection equipment such as 3D microscopes, engineering support services, as well as other technical processes.
We offer design support for prototyping applications manufacturing in a wide range of materials such as rubber, foams, and plastics, ferrous and super alloys. We also manufacture machined components and assemblies for a variety of industries, focusing on applications in the aerospace sector.
Specialised production capabilities
Protomatic has an extensive knowledge of a wide variety of manufacturing processes and materials for prototyping and production. Our team is always interested in solving problems for our customers. Working with many materials such as non-ferrous (aluminium, titanium, and magnesium), plastics, rubbers, red metals (copper and alloys), ferrous (steels and stainless steels), refractory (tantalum, niobium, tungsten) and super alloys (nickel, cobalt based).
We can perform many conventional and unique operations such as machining, forming, fusion welding, machining with CO2, rubber moulding, finishing techniques, laser marking, and thermal stabilising for plastic parts and many more, intensely supporting the aerospace industry. Our in-house special processes are difficult to find in most typical machine shops.
Project engineering support services
We manufacture small and medium-sized complex, high-precision components, providing high performance on-time delivery with Kanban techniques. A vertically integrated engineering, machinist and quality approach involves a machinist who is directly responsible for the programming, set-up, machining and in-process inspection of each project, which provides a seamless transition of manufacturing operations.
Protomatic also offers engineering support, helping to optimise your design for lowest-cost manufacturability and increased part performance. This makes us a comprehensive supplier with the ability to take a project from concept to ultimately performing its intended function.
Quality assurance for machined components
Protomatic has a qualified and experienced team who is committed to the timely delivery of high-quality machined aerospace components at competitive pricing. High standards are ensured through a complete, state-of-the-art testing and quality inspection process.
Quality Management System is registered with ISO 9001:2015, ISO13485: 2016 and AS9100D, and is a registered company with Women-Owned Small Business (WOSB), Militarily Critical Technical Data Agreement (USA), Directorate of Defense Trade Controls (DDTC) / The International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR/USA).
