"Not your average machine shop..."
Nothing is more important to us than the quality of our work. With our brand-new machinery and meticulous attention to detail, we achieve incredible surface finishes and very high precision on our parts - as fine as 0.0001”. We believe that our work speaks for itself!
Easy to work with
We prioritize fast, transparent and informed communication to inspire confidence in your project. RFQs are usually turned around in just a few hours and you will receive relevant updates throughout the manufacturing process.
When it comes to your engineering needs, we will always be on the same page. We are experts in machining, CAM, CAD, and are knowledgeable across many facets of mechanical engineering. Our skills enable us to work closely with your team to ensure your parts not only work, but are cost-effective.
Fast and agile
Short lead times are crucial for R&D: a single bottleneck can stall your entire project. For small-quantity orders, we typically ship within 1 to 2 weeks. Most machine shops don’t even want to touch prototype work and often quote lead times in months! We also reject large production runs to keep our schedule flexible.

Vapor honing technologies blasting cabinet
Vapour blasting is a finishing technique that we use on plastics, aluminum, steel, and stainless steel parts to create a smooth satin sheen. As opposed to dry blasting, wet blasting combines a slurry of water, abrasive, and pressurized air to clean the part while also finishing it at the same time. The type of abrasive media greatly changes the finishing characteristics. Coarse media such as aluminum oxide creates a dull surface that can smooth out machining marks and deburr parts, while a finer glass bead creates an aesthetic finish. We exclusively use a medium-fine glass bead which through our own experimentation produces the best aesthetics in anodized aluminum.
Kaeser SM 7.5 Aircenter Compressor
Our 7.5HP Kaeser can supply 32CFM at 125PSI with an integrated 80-gallon reservoir and air dryer. This is more than enough air to run the CNC mills and vapour blaster simultaneously!
