Proto Labs releases video clip to celebrate its Queen's Award for Enterprise

12 August 2010

In April, Proto Labs received The Queen’s Award for Enterprise: International Trade, 2010 in recognition of its engineering innovation, investment in technology and outstanding success in European markets. The company has now issued a short video clip of its facilities, taken on the day that the award was made in July, and this can be viewed here.

Since it was founded just five years ago, Proto Labs has radically improved the economics and delivery times associated with the production of prototype and low-volume parts for manufacturers. Customers are world-leaders in many different industry sectors, including medical, aerospace, automotive and domestic appliances.

Proto Labs offers two services: First Cut delivers Computer Numerical Control (CNC) machined parts in small quantities of 1-10 units, and Protomold delivers injection-moulded plastic parts in quantities of 10-10,000 plus. A customer can upload a 3D CAD model of their part to the First Cut or Protomold websites and receive an emailed quote within hours, including a detailed manufacturability analysis and an accurate all-in production price.

The customer can then place an order in much the same way as purchasing a book from an online retailer. Whichever service the customer uses, the company can ship orders in as little as one day from its Shropshire-based manufacturing facility.
