Protomatic Medical

Precision CNC Medical Machining and Prototype Development

Protomatic Medical specializes in CNC precision medical machining. We manufacture complex orthopedic medical devices such as hip, pedicle and maxoclofacial screws; locking pins and nails; bone plates; and mandibular joint replacement devices.

We also specialize in cardiovascular medical equipment, such as trocar devices, tunnellers, peristaltic pump components, and import and outport connections for left ventricular assist devices (LVADs).

Medical prototypes and medical device design

Protomatic Medical also offers medical prototypes and medical device design. We regularly manufacture components and our CNC capabilities include 4-axis and 5-axis milling as well as 3-axis turning. Fine precision machining and laser engraving are also available.

Protomatic Medical is a 'one-stop shop' for all your medical device machining needs. Our team can work with a wide range of materials, including aluminum, steel, plastic, rubber, ceramics, titanium, refractory metals and superalloys.

Components for left ventricular assist devices and aortic punches

Protomatic Medical often supplies components for left ventricular assist devices (LVADs) - pump-like devices that are surgically implanted to maintain the pumping ability of a heart that can no longer function on its own. We can also provide components for aortic punches, which are used to implant replacement heart valves in the heart as well as arterial bypass grafts in order to repair damaged arteries.

LVADs and aortic punches are just a couple of examples of the cardiovascular instruments we manufacture. We are a leading supplier of a range of instruments used in cardiovascular procedures and treatments, including:

  • Trocar devices
  • Tunnellers
  • Peristalic pump components
  • Specialized surgical tools

Medical prototypes for orthopedics

Recent advances in the medical machining industry have led to an increased number and variety of products for orthopedic uses. We are at the forefront of this technology, creating outstanding medical prototypes that are used by orthopedic surgeons all over the country. We continue to grow by creating more types of components needed for artificial joint replacements, also known as orthopedic implants.

Prototype testing of orthopedic implants

Our capabilities for rapid prototype testing of custom orthopedic implants enable us to constantly enhance our product quality. Our testing capabilities help speed time to clinical trials and commercial launch.

We are able to take orthopedic implants from design concept to medical device prototyping and on to production in record time. Our medical devices are guaranteed for accuracy and precision, from the orthopedic implants to the surgical tools used to install them.

Our product range includes:

  • Plates and screws
  • Locking pins and nails
  • Locking plate systems
  • Pedicle screws
  • Circular external fixation systems
  • Cannulated lag screws
  • Cannulated othopedic screws
  • Maxillofacial devices
  • Maxillofacial screws and implants

Components for cytometers

Protomatic Medical manufactures components for many medical instruments, including cytometers or 'cell counters'. A cytometer is similar to a microscope, except that instead of producing an image of the cell, it offers high-throughput for a large number of cells. This is just one area in which we have become an innovator in the machining of medical devices.

In addition to our specialties in cardiovascular and orthopedic medical devices, our skilled designers and craftsmen are ready to assist you with the development of any other medical product.
