The discussion and focus on the field of robotics have often been closely tied to its manufacturing application origins. However, over the past decade, robotics has exploded to include devices that augment surgery, assist with elderly care, lead search and rescue missions and monitor waterways.

The importance of robotics is not lost on the engineering community, which is why in partnership with Wevolver, Protolabs have combined community and industry insights to create the Manufacturing Robotics Report to provide you with an understanding of the current state of robotics and the future opportunities.

What will be covered?

  • Keep up to date with the latest trends in the Robotics industry
  • Technology advancements in material science and soft robotics
  • Overview of robotics hardware and key advances
  • What cutting-edge systems and technologies are enabling the acceleration of the Robotics industry
  • Cutting-edge robotics projects from across the globe, showcasing the various applications and industries robots can serve

"I needed to find a manufacturing partner that understood what I was trying to create and how important it was to get the product to market before another innovation came to light. Protolabs recognises this urgency."

— John Docherty, Boxing Hand Grenade

Consultative Quoting

Get design feedback from our experienced engineering team that has helped thousands of customers bring their products to market with quality 3D printed parts. We will also work with you to determine optimal part orientation based on your application's requirements.

Wide Material Selection

Across our five 3D printing technologies, we use a range of commercial-grade thermoset resins, and thermoplastic and metal powders to 3D print parts that are suitable for various part applications and industries. 

Precision & Repeatablity

Our industry-leading tolerances and surface finish quality stems from a dedicated process engineering and quality team for each 3D printing technology. We also offer a proprietary material called Microfine™, which can build features as small as 0.07mm.

Unmatched Scale

Our facility is home to more than 120 3D printing machines that produce metal and plastic parts. This means we'll always have capacity when you need parts fast.
