Protolabs Wins NAM Manufacturing Leadership Award

April 3, 2019

Protolabs, a Minneapolis, MN-based provider of technology-enabled manufacturing solutions, has been recognized for the fifth consecutive year by the National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) as a Manufacturing Leadership Award winner for outstanding achievement in engineering and production technology.

The digital manufacturer's winning project involved a multi-toolpath engine that helped automate programming efforts in order to reduce customer lead times and lower production costs. The team at Protolabs developed toolpath generation software that achieved smooth surface finishes for injection molds without increasing the milling time. The automation led to a significant decrease in production costs while providing customers with better quality surface finishes and shorter lead times.

“We’re honored to be recognized for this project,” says Vicki Holt, president and CEO of Protolabs. “We are committed to helping product developers from an array of industries succeed in bringing products to market quickly, and to do that, it’s necessary for us to place strong emphasis on continuous improvement, and more specifically, digitization of workflows and processes. The multi-toolpath engine project is a good example of how the fruits of those efforts ultimately benefit our customers.”

Protolabs will be recognized at the 15th Annual Manufacturing Leadership Awards Gala to be held on the last day of the Manufacturing Leadership Summit, June 10-12, 2019, at the Hyatt Regency Huntington Beach Resort and Spa in Huntington Beach, CA.
