Protolabs has been recognized by the National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) as a Manufacturing Leadership Award winner for its outstanding achievement in engineering and production technology. The winning project involved a multi-toolpath engine that helped automate programming efforts in order to reduce customer lead times and lower production costs. The team at Protolabs developed toolpath generation software that achieved smooth surface finishes for injection molds without increasing the milling time. The automation led to a decrease in production costs while providing customers with better quality surface finishes and shorter lead times. Given this automation, the company is able to offer customers high-quality on-demand manufacturing services. 

This is the fifth consecutive year in which the company has received a Manufacturing Leadership Award. The company was previously recognized for categories including Innovation Process Leadership, Customer Value Leadership, Operational Excellence and Manufacturer of the Year. 
 
Protolabs will be recognized at the 15th Annual Manufacturing Leadership Awards Gala, which will be held on the last day of the Manufacturing Leadership Summit, June 10-12, 2019 at the Hyatt Regency Huntington Beach Resort and Spa in Huntington Beach, California.
