We strive to make sure our 3D printing solutions are among the newest in the industry. Within our manufacturing processes, we use injection tooling and molding, laser sintering, and additive and subtractive processes. Most importantly, with all of our services, we handle your projects with the utmost care.

Trust GoProto for not only the finest advancements in technology, but the finest advancements in service. Need a quote on a project? Contact us today!

concept modeling

MULTI-JET FUSION (MJF)

2D printing giants HP™ have jumped into our 3D space in a big way with Multi Jet Fusion (MJF). This revolutionary new technology heat-fuses parts at the voxel (volumetric-pixel) level, resulting in rapidly manufactured parts with both superior finishes and mechanical strength.

fused deposition modeling

FUSED DEPOSITION MODELING (FDM)

When material properties are critical, the timeless favorite FDM may fit the bill. While this thermoplastic option won’t deliver superior-grade finishes, it is a tolerance and toughness workhorse that can handle specialized properties and environmental abuses.

Selective Laser Sintering

SELECTIVE LASER SINTERING (SLS)

Need parts that can stand up to the elements? Selective Laser Sintering might be just the thing. SLS is a layer-by-layer 3D printing process producing durable nylon parts. Not as fast or smooth as other processes, but deliver end-use parts with the best of them.

Direct Metal Laser Melting

DMLM

One of the most exciting innovations in 3D printing is Direct Metal Laser Melting (DMLM). This additive process delivers parts with highly complex geometries in metals such as titanium, stainless steel and aluminum in no time at all. Whether prototype or end-use part, think GoProto for you DMLM needs.

machining

MACHINING CNC

Machining is a tried and true subtractive process. Machined parts are durable, produced in production materials, highly accurate and have a superb surface finish. They can be painted or polished to create highly cosmetic or clear prototype through production use parts.

stereolithography

STEREOLITHOGRAPHY (SLA)

The grandfather of modern rapid prototyping, SLA gets you quality parts at a great price. A laser-based, additive process, SLA delivers highly accurate photopolymer parts with a quality surface finish. Not the strongest of all processes, however.

polyjet 3d printing

POLYJET (PJ)

The additive workhorse Polyjet uses UV light to cure deposited liquid photopolymers and delivers precision finish parts for your form/fit testing needs. Not for use in all mechanical applications, but is a good value option for quick-turn projects.

injection molding

INJECTION MOLDING

Injection molding plastic or rubber parts can be a difficult challenge without the right partner. Good news is your partner search ends here. GoProto’s deep industry experience will deliver quality parts free of surprises and pitfalls, ensuring quality and precision for every production run.

rapid injection tooling

RAPID INJECTION TOOLING

What if you need injection-molded parts, but have to have them super fast and at a value? You are definitely in the right spot. We at GoProto specialize in extremely quick turn on metal tooling for injection molded parts and won’t charge you an arm and leg to make it happen.

custom injection tooling

CUSTOM INJECTION TOOLING

Your project calls for intricate parts or high quantities? No problem at all. Our GoProto custom injection tooling solution delivers production plastics and elastometric materials in a snap. Our decades of experience means fast, world-class quality parts, regardless of complexity.
