3D Printed Mock Up Boards For Testing & Validation Services
With its custom 3D printer, ATS offers 3D printing for the testing and validation of mockup PCB boards. Early board designs and re-spins are often limited in quantity until the final design is approved and manufactured. 3D printed circuit boards allow the airflow and temperature testing and validation services to be performed on the prototype PCB. This allows ATS to start validating the board and its heat sinks without waiting for the final actual PCB to be shipped, saving valuable design time and avoiding expensive PCB spins.

Our company was founded in 1999 by Larry Lukis, a successful entrepreneur and computer geek who wanted to radically reduce the time it took to get injection-molded plastic prototype parts. His solution was to automate the traditional manufacturing process by developing complex software that communicated with a network of mills and presses. As a result, plastic and metal parts could be produced in a fraction of the time it had ever taken before.
Over the next decade, we would continue to expand our injection molding envelope, introduce quick-turn CNC machining, and open global facilities in Europe and Japan.
In 2014, we launched industrial-grade 3D printing services to allow product developers, designers, and engineers an easier path to move from early prototyping to low-volume production.
And in 2017, we acquired Rapid Manufacturing to further expand our machining capabilities and introduce sheet metal fabrication into our suite of services. Yeah, we've been busy.
Today, Protolabs is the world’s fastest manufacturer of custom prototypes and on-demand production parts with manufacturing facilities in five countries.
