Access to Top-Tier Machines & Technology

We are partnered with The Ohio State University’s Center for Design and Manufacturing Excellence (CDME). This relationship allows access to staff, students, faculty and equipment for deeper application knowledge in:

  • Materials
  • Metallurgy
  • Characterization/Inspection/Testing
  • Machining
  • Heat-Treatment
  • Design and Simulation
  • Heat Treat and HIP

Additive Manufacturing Advantages of the Arcam Q10+ EBM

  • Produce orthopedic designs with unique trabecular structures for improved Osseointegration
  • Design and produce custom implants for patient specific applications using data from CT scans
  • Capability to stack and nest parts on the build platform allows for cost efficient production

Additional Benefits Include:

The Arcam Q10+ EBM offers the unique freedom to optimize your design with pieces separate from the build plate. All parts are produced at an elevated temperature which reduces residual stresses.

The Aerospace Advantages of the Concept Laser M2

  • QM meltpool provides in-situ process monitoring increases quality and traceability
  • Dual laser system increases productivity compared to single laser systems thereby reducing part costs
  • Ability to produce nickel alloy 718 components rapidly direct from 3D model data



Hybrid Manufacturing: How We Combine Additive and Traditional Manufacturing

Our designs can combine metal and plastic additive manufacturing with traditional manufacturing methods such as sheet metal, welding, and CNC milling.  This hybrid approach often allows the creation of hardware in a more cost-effective and functional manner than would be possible with a single manufacturing method.

Our sister-company Proto Precision Fabrication offers an entire host of sheet metal fabrication capabilities and services, including:

  • CNC Punching, Laser Cutting & Forming
  • Welding
  • Prototyping
  • Production
  • Packaging & Shipping
  • Hardware Inspection

Talent & Technology: The Proto Precision Production Advantage

Because of our access to equipment and top-tier technology, Proto Precision Additive can fabricate and prototype hardware for a variety of industries, including automobile, aerospace/propulsion, medical and industrial. Our production process is designed to be leaner and more agile at lower cost without a reduction in quality.
