Proto Labs Expands Metal Injection Molding Offerings

The company has added several new metal materials to its portfolio.

Proto Labs, a provider of additive manufacturing services, is now offering injection-molded low-alloy steel prototypes and production parts. The company has added two nickel steel materials and a chrome-moly material to its portfolio.

These new metals, according to the company, expand the potential applications for parts made with the organization’s MIM (metal injection molding) process.

“We’ve had tremendous customer demand for stainless steel with MIM last year, and expect the same response to our new low-alloy metals,” says Becky Cater, product manager for MIM at Proto Labs. “We offer many different hard and soft metals through our 3D printing and CNC (computer numerically controlled) machining services at Proto Labs, but nickel steel is only produced through metal injection molding. This material boost will inherently let our customers do more things in the realm of low-volume metal manufacturing.”
