When you need functional custom parts for prototyping, testing, or short run production - and you need them really fast - you need Proto Labs®. Working directly from your 3D CAD file, Proto Labs manufactures real parts in engineering grade materials, and ships them to you in as little as one business day. And while fast is what we’re all about, we don’t do the so-called ‘additive rapid prototyping’. We use conventional CNC machining and injection moulding processes to make real parts you can fully test and incorporate into your products. Started in 1999 by an engineer frustrated by the time it took to get functional prototype parts for product development, Proto Labs has rapidly grown into a global supplier with manufacturing facilities in North America, Europe, and Japan.
Injection-moulded plastic prototypes and low-volume production parts in any thermoplastic material. Ideal for 10-10,000 parts.
CNC machined prototype and low-volume production parts in over 30 engineering grade resins, aluminium or brass. Ideal for 1-10 parts
