ProtoLab is an engineering laboratory for university (pavia,italy) for the exploration of 3D printing, services, consult, projects, R&D, production, prototipyng, and more...
Thanks to our systems we've erected a large network through which we've developed important skills and innovative technologies.
The laboratory uses the experience gained from year of professional research and experience, combining it with production and Specific/Custom services to the client similar as Consulting, Training, 3D Product, Design Prototyping and much further.
The laboratory is managed by a team of engineers and university engineering professors who can supports in every product process and do engineering - prototyping - product optimization processes
Thanks to times of experience in the knowledge of the 3D world we propose consulting and training services to support your projects.
From the selection of printing technologies to the prototyping software, from the basics of 3D printing to the creation of the design
With our 3D printers we cover numerous technologies and product styles so we can offer a 3D printing service suitable for most of the requirements.
Unique experience from the world of university research to the industrial one
WE ARE NOT JUST A SERVICE
We do not limit ourselves to providing a service production only,
but we offer (if there is a need) an entire assistance on everything related to additive and subtractive manufacturing from design to problem solving from production to engineering to training and study/research.
We've completed further than 1000 studies and designs with companies.
With our powerful laboratory you can count on a long experience in the field and a superior quality thanks to our study and technologies
Our skills range from software and problem solving to production.
We are a team that can perform both theory and practice
We don't have packages formerly made to propose for each request and design, the service is customizable and specific for the client, therefore allowing us to satisfy each specific request
Due to our status as a university research laboratory, over time we've created a vast network of knowledge both in the private and public sectors, therefore perfecting our consulting possibilities.
Subtractive manufacturing or ‘machining‘ involves cutting, hollowing, or taking parts out of a block of something.
We use CNC 5-axis technology to produce high quality parts and to post process 3D printed components to obtain the desired precision and surface finishing.
Additive manufacturing uses data computer software to direct hardware to deposit material, layer upon layer, in precise geometric shapes.
We produce high quality 3D printed prototypes and production parts with the most cutting-edge advanced technology and thanks to our network, we have access to the most advanced technological and business opportunities.
5 axis CNC vertical mill
We have an in-depth knowledge of materials.
Rigids, softs, dformables...We can satisfy most requests and replicate mechanical properties.
Thanks to our network of suppliers and experts, we can provide support for any specific material request.
FIBRED REINFORCED MATERIAL
Poliammide based materials that can be reinforced with short carbon fiber and/or long carbon/glass/Kevlar fiber to improve the thermo-mechanical properties.
A large selection of high mechanical/chemical/thermal resistance technopolimers, such as ULTEM, PEEK, PEI, printable in neat or reinforced form to reach the desirable properties.
SOFTS DEFORMABLES MATERIALS
Differents type of materials with a large variety of shore up to A:30,stiffness and mechanical properties.
FERROUS AND NON-FERROUS METAL ALLOYS
3D printable metal and aluminum with low cost perfect for prototyping or precise piece
FROM THE MOST COMMON TO THE RAREST POLYMERS
We've got a ton of different polymers to choose from, so you're sure to find the perfect one for your project. Thanks to our extensive network, we can even source rare materials if needed.
