Proto Labs is the world’s fastest manufacturer of custom prototype and low-volume parts. Our Firstcut and Protomold services utilize proprietary computing technology and automated manufacturing systems to provide CNC-machined and injection-molded parts made from real materials in a fast as one day.

Company History
Proto Labs began in 1999 as The Protomold Company, Inc., specializing in the quick-turn manufacturing of custom plastic injection-molded parts. In 2007, we introduced our Firstcut CNC-machining service, and by 2009, both Firstcut and Protomold began operating under our corporate name, Proto Labs, Inc. We are now a global company with full-service manufacturing in the United States, England and Japan as well as sales offices in Germany and France.

What We Do
Proto Labs has radically changed the economics and lead time associated with obtaining CNC-machined and injection-molded parts. We provide product designers with the easiest, fastest and least-expensive way to obtain low volumes of parts based on their 3D CAD models.

We routinely ship parts to designers before they can even get quotes from conventional suppliers, sometimes as fast as the next business day. These quick delivery times are possible because we have automated the manual process normally associated with mold design and tool-path generation through the use of proprietary software.

Services
Protomold Injection Molding manufactures parts from hundreds of resins, in a variety of finishes, for a fraction of traditional injection-molding costs. It’s ideal for low- to mid-volume production parts, bridge tooling and functional testing.

Firstcut CNC Machining mills functional metal and plastic parts from a number of engineering-grade materials. It’s great for prototypes in small quantities and custom one-off projects, such as jigs or fixtures.

Free Design Analysis
Quality design feedback at no cost is almost unheard of. But that’s exactly what you get from Proto Labs through our automated quoting system. It’s like a lot like having your own consulting engineer on call. Simply upload your 3D CAD model, day or night, and our compute cluster will go to work analyzing your design. You’ll receive an interactive quote with manufacturability feedback and pricing information within hours.
