Secondary Services

Supplementary services to meet your project needs

What are Secondary Services?

Manufactured parts are often delivered straight from the plastic injection moulding or CNC machining process, but some need an additional ‘secondary operation’ performed.

For these parts, the secondary operation, or ‘Secondary Service’, can be carried out to meet specific project requirements.

 

What are the advantages of Secondary Services?

Protolabs’ can facilitate Secondary Services for a project in a number of ways. For example, when specific production process monitoring is required, when additional part inspection sampling and detailed measurement is required, or when assembly of individual parts is required.
