From Idea to Market

Whether it's simple prismatic geometry creation or more complex freeform surfacing for organic shapes, Pacific Research Laboratories has the skills and tools to transform your ideas into working prototypes for manufacturing.

Our workshop is equipped with a variety of computer-controlled machining equipment that can be used to make one-off prototypes, small production runs, or the necessary tooling for larger production runs.

Product Development
and Design

We work with you to concept, design and develop your idea into a marketable product.

Prototype / Master Pattern
/ Tooling

Our team can work through a set of ideas until we find the exact fit for your needs.

/ Engineering

We offer the latest technologies and are ready to get to work on your next project.


We have a myriad of design, engineering capabilities to get your idea to market


We'll help you conceive, design, and develop your idea into a marketable product.

  • Extensive experience in quick-turn projects
  • Materials include urethanes, silicones, glass & carbon fibers, thermoplastics, metals and woods
  • Electronics include touch-screens, sensors, microprocessors, actuators, data acquisitions, circuit-board design
  • Hydraulics, pneumatics, machine design


We rapidly prototype so you can fine tune the details before it hits your customer's hands.

  • 3D printer, running high-strength ABS
  • CNC large 3-axis routers, 4-axis machining centers, CNC turning center
  • Staff model makers for hand-built patterns and sculpting
  • Urethane, silicone, mass cast epoxy, high-temp epoxy laminate, gelcoat/urethane foam and machine aluminum tooling


Once the product is set, we create final tooling to manufacture and ship your products to market.

  • Solidworks for prismatic geometry creation
  • Rapidform for reverse engineering and NURBS surface modeling
  • 3D laser scanning and Microscribe digitizing
  • MasterCAM for CNC programming
  • Sensable Technologies FreeForm for non-prismatic geometry creation
