NEW Capabilities!

We are excited to announce the addition of FDM thermoplastic printing to our growing list of services. We are expanding our capabilities to better meet all your prototyping and low volume production needs. Contact us today for application questions & pricing. Check back soon to see more new services coming soon!

We provide service

Many prototyping jobs require more than one process to complete. You may have overmolded pieces, live hinges, gears, inserts or specialty finish applications to add before your parts are ready. We are a high-mix shop. Most of these services we have in house. What we don’t, we will manage for you.

Unsurpassed Quality

Whether it’s your first prototype or your thousandth production part, we know each part matters! We are committed to the highest standard of quality and you can rely on us to deliver parts that meet or exceed your project requirements.

The value of low volume

Take your custom parts to market within a matter of days, without expensive tooling. Our process allows for modification as you receive feedback, make changes, and dial in your final designs for mass production.

Requesting a quote

Each quote we receive is closely examined by our engineering team to ensure you get the best price, value and product. Quotes are typically returned within a matter of hours, though complex projects may take longer. If you need a quote immediately, call us.

Meet our team

As a privately held rapid prototyping service bureau in the United States, we continue to seek customer feedback and incorporate new technologies. Over the years we have expanded our operations, added production capabilities, and honed our skills to develop the most responsive service team in our industry.

We are rapid prototyping specialists

Proto Technologies is a privately held rapid prototyping service bureau and precision machine shop in the United States. We specialize in quick-turn 3D printing, additive manufacturing, complex molding, CNC machining, and high-mix low-volume production. You don’t need to call multiple vendors, write separate purchase orders and coordinate deliveries for the production of your products; instead leave it all in our hands.

Proto Technologies is your one stop shop for turnkey production of premium parts.

  • Did you know?

    • We strive to be your turnkey provider of all your prototyping and low volume production needs.

    • Parts can be cast in silicones as well as urethanes.

    • Connex500 Polyjet parts can be painted.

    • The use of Connex500 Polyjet parts for masters can lead to cost savings in some applications.

    • Horizontally oriented Stereolithography (SLA) parts build faster and cheaper, but magnify the stair steps used in the model.

    • Stereolithography (SLA) parts are used in investment casting.

    • Urethanes come in a wide range of different durometers and Shore A & D varieties.

    • Wall thickness makes a difference in the stability of urethane castings.

    • Pucks can be insert into molds during the molding process to simulate tactile feel in silicone keypads.

    • Stereolithography (SLA) parts can be used as mold masters.

    • The Stereolithography (SLA) process can also build QuickCast masters.

    • Material choices greatly affect the cost of your machining project.

    • Part geometry determines silicone mold life.

    • We can be your low volume production supplier for parts in metals, plastics, and more.

    • Silicone molds are a great solution for low volume production.

    • We can provide you with referrals for industrial design advice and mechanical engineering.

    • Radii can greatly affect the cost of your machining project.

    • If your Stereolithography (SLA) part’s walls are thick enough they can be hollowed out to save on production material costs.

    • Silicone has a limited life cycle depending on the casting material chosen.

    • We can machine all types of materials.

    • Silicones come in a wide range of different durometers and Shore A & D varieties.

    • Urethane castings can be painted and finished.

    • Stereolithography (SLA) parts designed with the long axis of the model oriented vertically take longer to build, but reduce the number of stair steps used.

    • Silicone parts can be painted and finished.

    • Machining tolerances can greatly affect the cost of your project.

    • We can build your aluminum tooling for plastic injection production.

    • Electrodag shielding can be applied to urethanes as needed for production models and functional prototypes.

    • Urethane parts can be cast in specific colors and with specific textures to meet your design needs.

    • As you cast your models, urethane permeates the silicone mold over time and degrades the accuracy of your mold.
