Creating critical devices for the medical industry

  • We manufacture complex, high-precision, quality components maintained to tolerances of +/- 0.0001" (0.0025mm). We utilize CNC 4-axis and 5-axis milling as well as 3-axis turning.
  • We are experts in materials including but not limited to plastics, rubbers, ceramics, aluminum, steel, stainless steel, superalloys, titanium, and refractory metals.
  • We employ special operations such as laser scanning, YAG Fiber laser marking, tumbling, glass bead blasting, micro-blasting, Co2 cleaning, dry machining, plasma cleaning, ultrasonic cleaning, ovens, automated polishing, riveting, and assembly.
  • We inspect each part to ensure that every specification is met by using a multi-step process which includes hand gauges, CMM, optical comparators, and Go/No-Go gauges, thereby creating Inspection Sample Warrants compliant to ISO or customer requirements.

Offering expert technical product drawing support

  • CAD/CAM - We can drafting services to document your design, recommending design for optimal-cost manufacturability.
  • With our technical staff can support your non-disclosure agreements, and confidentiality is standard business practice.

Providing a "one-stop shop" for turn-key medical solutions

  • Protomatic Medical responds rapidly to quotes.
  • We partner to solve your toughest challenges dealing with your design innovation and development, production, and, of course, emergency situations.
  • We can get you out of a jam! If those cast parts are not available yet, we can rush billet parts to meet your pre-production or production needs.
  • We manage secondary operations such as anodizing, grinding, plating, welding, sandblasting, painting, electro-polishing, and dry film lubrication.
  • We handle program management of your job from initiation to completion: when you need it done yesterday, when you need the correct certifications, when there's no room for error, when the material is expensive, when you want one source for the complete product - with finishing and assembly - call the experts.
  • We strive for on-time delivery and actively seek out cost reductions.
