Proto Labs has established itself as a source for custom CNC-machined and injection-moulded parts delivered in as little as one business day. Since inception the company has invested unceasingly in both technology and people, building a world-class, innovative service for designers and engineers across Europe.

Proto Labs' innovative online quoting systems, ProtoQuote (for injection-moulded parts) and FirstQuote (for CNC-machined parts) are a cost and manufacturability analysis quotation system accessed via the company's websites. After loading a 3D CAD part, customers receive a clear, simple and non-technical quote, incorporating costs, material choices and where appropriate suggestions for changes to parts in order to improve manufacturability and/or tooling and part cost.

managing director, John Tumelty says: "ProtoQuote and FirstQuote are unique, time- and cost-saving systems that benefit Proto Labs customers. However, we wanted to allow everyone who comes to our booth at TCT to experience the speed and simplicity of them, even those who have absolutely no prior experience of ordering injection-moulded parts or custom CNC-machined parts."

Proto Labs Ltd. is the European arm of the globally successful Proto Labs Inc., based in Minnesota, USA. However, it is local expertise and engineering know-how that has made Proto Labs a success in Europe. Mr Tumelty says: "Whilst our European manufacturing operation is based solely in the UK, we have sales offices in the UK, Germany, France and Italy, which have helped us build successful working relationships with some of the biggest, most prestigious manufacturing companies across Europe, within the automotive, aerospace, medical and domestic appliances sectors, amongst others."
