Accelerate product development, reduce costs, and optimise your supply chain.
We are the world’s fastest digital manufacturing source for rapid prototypes and on-demand production parts. Our automated quoting and manufacturing systems allow us to produce commercial-grade plastic, metal and liquid silicone rubber parts within days.
The result? A manufacturing partner that helps you accelerate speed to market and strategically manage demand volatility across the entire product life cycle.
Leveraging Digital Manufacturing
1. Increase Speed to Market
Quotes within hours, parts within days.
- Short manufacturing turnaround times support multiple design iterations.
Development is accelerated and products are launched to market faster than before.
2. Design Better Parts
- Automated design for manufacturability (DFM) analysis provided free in every machining and moulding quote, highlighting potential issues and providing immediate solutions.
- Application engineers available to discuss design challenges and offer support.
- Extensive library of online resources including guidelines, tips, and white papers.
3. Reduce Risk
Cost-effective aluminium tooling validates design before capital investment in steel tooling is made.
Manufacturing scale to relieve capacity issues and subsequent production delays for companies that are producing parts in-house.
On-demand production to effectively manage demand volatility and inventory costs.
“Protolabs is a tremendous ally because they enable us to develop and iterate at a much higher speed. Sometimes, we use Protolabs as the manufacturer for a given component for the lifetime of the project because they are so great to work with.”
