Forging business background
After many years in the forging production industry, I was more convinced than ever, that new process innovations were possible. From the beginning, it has been our goal to reach for new ideas to advance the forging industry through innovation and creativity. By thinking outside the box of traditional foundry practices, Neotecman has evolved into a significant leader in the forging field with the development of new technology that is both significant and meaningful in a very competitive global marketplace. Being creative drives us and will continue to be our focus.
Service & Maintenance background

The history of the company begins 40 years ago with the family business Metalúrgica Domingo S.A., founded in 1981. The company specialized in traditional forging of brass products such as valves and fittings. One of the founders, Manel Domingo, worked with his father. His restless mind never stopped inventing the automation of traditional mechanical presses, the only ones on the market back then. Manel looked for ways to improve, speed up and automate the various stages of stamping, until he was able to transform the established presses into a completely new and innovative concept. These modified machines have generated a lot of interest from other brass manufacturers.
And at some point, Manel decided to devote himself exclusively to the production of presses, instead of brass parts. He proposed founding a new company called Neotecman to Carles Esteve, who had been working as a stamping machine maintenance technician at Metalúrgica Domingo S.A. for 10 years. Carles was fully engaged in electronics, hydraulics, pneumatics and mechanics at the plant. It was a radical and bold decision, but Manel took a chance and sold Metalúrgica Domingo S.A. Thus, in 2004, the world saw the first punching system including furnace, bar cutting system and press officially manufactured by Neotecman. It was the R.28, with a single vertical punch to handle bars up to 28 mm in diameter. After some years, a much more complex press was developed and manufactured, which already had 4 horizontal and 1 vertical punches, a model which still has its predominant place on our catalogue and of course, on the market.
