Since its founding in 1967, PROTO Manufacturing has been involved in the development of instrumentation for the characterization of materials. Our product line includes x-ray diffraction residual stress & retained austenite measurement systems, powder diffractometers, Laue single crystal orientation systems, x-ray tubes and custom equipment. For over 30 years we have been providing solutions for laboratory, factory and field environments. Measurement services are also available through ISO 17025 laboratories in the United States, Canada and Japan.

Residual Stress & Retained Austenite
We offer an extensive range of residual stress XRD products to ensure that the most suitable equipment is available for your measurement needs. Choose from our high-speed LXRD Laboratory Systems, flexible iXRD Portable Systems or our handheld mXRD Ultra Portable system.

Powder Diffraction
The new Proto AXRD Benchtop powder diffraction system provides a low cost alternative for powder diffraction. This compact, easy to maintain system is ideal for Phase Identification, Quantitative Analysis or Structure Analysis. The AXRD brings you years of convenience and value for even the most demanding x-ray diffraction material investigation.

Laue Single Crystal Orientation
We have a range of options for orienting single crystals. Our cost effective LAUE COS system is ideal for orienting and cutting crystals in R&D laboratories. Alternatively, our high-speed LAUE HT system is designed for production-level inspection environments such as single crystal turbine casting facilities.

X-Ray Tubes
We manufacture a wide selection of standard x-ray tubes. Our x-ray tube fabrication facility can also do custom designs for XRD, XRF or imaging.

Measurement Services
Trust your x-ray diffraction measurement needs to our highly skilled and knowledgeable team. Our ISO 17025 laboratories have the highest quality standards and procedures. With over 20 dedicated XRD systems we can accommodate your laboratory and field measurement needs, with fast, accurate and efficient service.
