This is ProCom
ProCom GmbH, founded in 1977, has been a development partner and series supplier within mechanical engineering for automation equipment for multi-axis contouring machines (2D- / 2½D-processing) and an Industry 4.0 specialist for the process chains, in which the cutting technologies are integrated, since 1982. We have been offering our own CNC solution with our own CNC core for 35 years and are a specialist for CAM applications.
Our customers are medium-sized companies, who use our solutions worldwide and greatly appreciate our professional consulting expertise and project work.
The products completely consist of parts and software components that are made in Germany. Machines with ProCom solutions work in a highly dynamic and precise way. In Aachen, there is an in-house manufacturing and a research and development department with direct proximity to RWTH Aachen University. The service structure in Aachen enables short communication channels and thus quick decisions. ProCom Automation presents itself on the platform Schneidforum and in the forum of IndustryArena.
ProCom advises on central issues relating to energy production and trade in the Energy business unit. With process and IT expertise, ProCom advisers supervise the implementation of strategic requirements right through to operational service. IT solutions from ProCom ensure the optimum marketing of energy portfolios covering all time horizons and markets.
We employ over 100 people from 12 countries in the business units Energy and Automation at our sites in Aachen, Cologne, Berlin and Ningbo (China). ProCom is certified in accordance with ISO 9001:2015.
Dr. Max Scheidt:
“Courage is good, but perseverance is better.
We are setting out on our path – and we will discover what is undiscovered. After all, for 40 years, we have been setting out on our path together with customers and employees in order to find solutions.
ProCom has the perseverance to provide the customer with the right innovative solutions in automation technology and the energy sector for decades.
We will continue to think ahead instead of just catching up.”
“Every day, we work on making your machines even more efficient so that you can continue to play a leading role in the global competition.”

Research and Development
ProCom GmbH regularly engages its energy industry and automation business units in research projects supported by German federal and North Rhine Westphalian state public funding. Each of these projects is conducted with partners from industry and from academia, and ProCom has had a coordinating role in some of the projects. The research projects that are currently in progress are briefly described below:
The StoOPT.NRW project aims to develop new methods and IT tools to permit the maximized exploitation of the operational flexibilities of CHP and other composite systems by the use of stochastic improvement.
The SINERGIEN project aims to use a novel coupling of commercially available simulation tools to create an overall cross-layer model of the smart grid architecture that can, for example, be used to evaluate operational and investment scenarios in relation to distribution-network extensions.PDF Download
The iHEM project is investigating how an intelligent home-energy-management system needs to be implemented so that energy consumption is minimized in a predictive operating mode with synergistic cooperation between all thermal and electrical components.PDF Download
The ROSVS project is developing robust optimization processes for plant inventories with predominantly renewable energy generators that guarantee stable grid operation despite uncertain factors and unplanned operating-reserve demands.PDF Download
The MaxiMMI project is investigating how even inexperienced users can operate complex production machinery intuitively, ergonomically and thus without stress by means of modern communication devices.
