Proto Labs: One Company. Three Services.

Proto Labs is the world’s fastest source for custom prototype and low- to mid-volume parts. With our Fineline, Firstcut and Protomold services, our speed and versatility lets you take your parts from the very early stages of prototyping all the way up to short-run production of 10,000+ parts — all with one technology-driven, quick-turn company.

Additive Manufacturing

Fineline Additive Manufacturing offers three rapid prototyping processes: stereolithography (SLA), selective laser sintering (SLS) and direct metal laser sintering (DMLS). When concept models, extremely small parts or high-precision geometries are required, Fineline’s additive processes provide product developers with another quick-turn option in prototyping.

CNC Machining

Firstcut CNC Machining offers real parts directly from your 3D CAD model. It’s great for prototypes, functional testing, fixtures, jigs, one-off projects or offloading internal machining resources. Choose from more than 30 different materials including ABS, Nylon, PC, Delrin®, PEEK, Ultem® and metals.

Injection Molding

Protomold Injection Molding offers real injection-molded parts directly from 3D CAD models. It's ideal for low- to mid-volume production parts, bridge tooling and functional testing. Choose from hundreds of engineering-grade resins, in a variety of finishes, at a fraction of traditional molding costs. Also offering liquid silicone rubber and metal injection molded parts.

Research and Development

Protoworks® is Proto Labs’ center for researching, developing and market-testing new accelerated manufacturing processes for prototype or low-volume production parts. New processes are now in the early stage of commercialization, learn more about our Magnesium Thixomolding capabilities.
