Product Announcement from Proto Labs, Inc.
At Protomold we have automated the process of designing and manufacturing molds based on customer supplied 3D CAD part models. Due to this automation, we typically cut the lead time for the initial parts to one-third of conventional methods. Cost saving varies with the number of parts being produced, but injection molding may also have a substantial cost advantage in runs of up to thousands of parts.
This allows us to support prototyping, bridge tooling or low-volume production requirements of our customers as described below.
Prototyping: Rapid prototyping processes are great for testing form and fit, but many times FDM, SLA and the others are no substitute for testing with real injection molded parts. With Protomold, you can get real plastic prototype injection molded parts for as little as $1495 and shipped as fast as the next business day.
Bridge Tooling: When your production tooling won't be ready for another 3 or 4 months, it's great to have a way to make those 100, 1000 or 10,000 parts for pilot production or market testing, and nobody can do this faster than Protomold.
Production: If your volume requirements don't justify expensive steel production tooling, Protomold can supply production parts to meet your full requirements.
We manufacture thousands of molds each year in support of our customers' new product development efforts, so if you haven't checked us out before please visit our website, upload a 3D CAD model and experience an interactive, web-based 3D ProtoQuote® today.
