The ProtoFab History

ProtoFab’s origins go back to 1996, when former chemistry teacher Jack Wu started offering rapid prototyping services for the nascent industrial design market in China.

The company he founded, Duch Group, is now one of the world’s leading manufacturers of custom prototypes and on-demand production services. With three manufacturing facilities across China, Duch Group is able to offer design assistance, rapid prototyping, low-volume manufacturing, and mass production to clients all over the globe.

Duch Group launched the ProtoFab project in 2014, offering industrial-grade stereolithography 3D printing services fine-tuned for cost efficiency and offered as part of unrivaled production services package.

Materials

 

SL-ABS50

ABS Like

SL-ABS050 is the perfect replacement for ABS in functional prototypes and low-volume parts. The bright white color is identical to ABS and it is also extremely robust.

SL-ABS60

Tough & Durable

SL-ABS060 is an ultra-tough white plastic that is hard to break and can handle challenging builds. It acts as a replacement for CNC-machined polypropylene or ABS and is ideal for producing master models for vacuum casting.

SL-ABS90

Heat Resistance

The primary characteristic of SL-ABS90 is its strong resistance to heat (up to 90 degrees Celsius). It is also a highly robust material resistant to a wide range of substances, including solvents and oil.

SL-FX010

Flexible

SL-FX010 is a flexible plastic ideal for snap fit assemblies, vacuum casting master patterns, and for durable prototypes where it recreates the effect of molded polypropylene (PP).

SL-TS010

Transparent

SL-TS010 is a clear plastic with excellent resistance against humidity and moisture. Its key property is transparency, which sees it used in a range of applications including car headlights.
