TURBOCAM International
Prototyping

We make dreams come true.

Over 500 unique prototypes are produced every year at TURBOCAM by teams of engineers and machinists at facilities in North America, Europe, and Asia. These teams bring a wealth of information and experience in machining, metallurgy, aerodynamics, geometric modeling, analysis, and software.

Prototyping has always been a major emphasis of the company as we support the latest innovations and advanced part development for jet aircraft engines, rocket engines, diesel truck engines, power generation, petrochemical applications, and much, much more. From one-inch to forty-inch diameters and from basic airfoils to advanced integrally shrouded designs, TURBOCAM can satisfy your unique prototyping needs.

When products go into production, our engineers are able to assist in making tradeoffs of design, performance, quality, and cost of manufacturing. We can count hundreds of products that are now in production after the manufacturing process was prototyped and developed by TURBOCAM.

By being able to continuously innovate in the design and use of software, and by preserving the lessons learned into a continuously evolving and active software R&D effort, a high degree of flexibility has flowed into prototyping ability and experience. Our engineers bring unique skills to a development team by striving to understand the needs of applications and by crafting creative and economically sound solutions.

TURBOCAM has also obtained patents for two processes that may offer excellent manufacturing options for some designs:

  • Electrochemical Machining of bladed parts
  • Machining of Shrouded Impellers
