Driving Innovation with ProtoTech Machining

Prototech Machining stands at the forefront of precision engineering solutions for the automotive industry, consistently delivering high-quality components that drive innovation and performance.

Automotive Prototyping and Production

The design process for automotive parts includes important steps such as CNC machining, rapid prototyping, and sheet metal fabrication. Prototypes are crucial for testing and improvement, and 3D printing technologies like FDM, SLS, and DMLS make the process faster and more cost-effective. Automotive engineers can also utilize Carbon Fiber Manufacturing and Aluminum Casting Molds for various applications. Injection Molding and Die Casting allow joining multiple components for large items. Online CNC machining and Vacuum Casting are options for low volume production. Sheet Metal Bending is used to create complex shapes and structures in the automotive industry.

What Materials Work Best for Automotive Applications?

Thermoplastics
Choose from hundreds of thermoplastics including PEEK, acetal, or opt for rapid prototyping with your own material. Preserve your branding by incorporating custom colorants for qualified projects.
Nylons
Utilize CNC machining and rapid prototyping to create functional prototypes, employing various nylon materials via selective laser sintering and Multi Jet Fusion. Enhance mechanical properties with mineral- and glass-filled nylons when required.
Aluminum
A versatile material for light-weighting, offers an outstanding strength-to-weight ratio and can undergo machining or 3D printing. Our services encompass CNC machining, rapid prototyping, sheet metal fabrication, injection molding.
