Quick-turn manufacturer Proto Labs is launching an additive manufacturing (AM) service through the acquisition of FineLine Prototyping.
Proto Labs is adding additive manufacturing services to its portfolio of product developing services, which include concept modeling, form and fit testing and short-run production.
FineLine Prototyping offers stereolithography as well as selective and direct laser metal sintering to its customers.
“We are excited to launch our new additive manufacturing service,” said Vicki Holt, Proto Labs president and CEO. “The FineLine acquisition is the first step in building this new service. We will look to expand our additive manufacturing capabilities in the US, as well as globally, through both organic growth and potential new acquisitions. Our customers have been asking us to provide additive manufacturing services for quite some time, and now we can address that need. We’re accepting orders starting today.”
