Your Additive Manufacturing Services Provider & Total Solution Leader

Proto Precision Additive combines world-class, additive-related research and advanced technical development to create an efficient product design, analysis, simulation and engineering process. From beginning to end, we have the in-house expertise, experience and technology to turn your idea from “innovative concept” to “ground-breaking product.”

Design for Additive: How We Help Perfect the Concept

The Proto Precision Engineering and Design team will extract all necessary information surrounding your concept, create a 3D model, test that model against real-world simulations, work within your design guidelines to optimize your part for your metrics and prepare all files for a seamless production process.

Reverse Engineering: Recreate Obsolete or Impossible to Source Hardware

The Proto Precision Additive Engineering and Design team can scan your hardware, create CAD models, repair any failed aspects of the scanned hardware, design-in improvements and manufacture your hardware; no drawing needed. The tooling required to make old hardware is often missing or scrapped decades ago. The creation of new tooling is possible, but it requires significant time and money and therefore is only feasible for a large production run. Proto Precision Additive will recreate the hardware you need, to your specifications, and in the quantity and timeline needed by your operation.
