Protomatic to Offer 3D Printing Services

Protomatic, a CNC (computer numerically controlled) precision machining shop, is now offering 3D-printed metal parts in addition to its current manufacturing services.

The company his partnered with a shop that has 14 3D metal printing machines. Material offerings include aluminum, titanium, stainless steel, Inconel, cobalt chrome and maraging steel. This partnership, a press release states, will serve a variety of markets including aerospace, energy/oil, medical, automotive, commercial goods and more.

“[3D printing] is ideal for prototyping. Shortening the manufacturing time by almost a third gives us more time to design, which is always a benefit. We are also able to produce designs we wouldn’t otherwise be able to do,” says Alan Newby, chief engineer for Future Programs and Technology at Rolls-Royce.
