Plating service for 3D-printed parts

Proto Labs has extended its in-house 3D-printing capabilities with the inclusion of specialist plating services for plastic parts built using stereolithography or SLS.

Components are plated with materials that include copper, nickel and chromium. Daniel Cohn, general manager of Proto Labs, Germany, says: “We have become increasingly aware of the significant enhancements plating makes to the capabilities of the resultant part, hence our move to offer these services in-house. Now, with plating technology and operational expertise, we support product testing and project progression even further.”
