Batch Production

We can produce low volume batches of parts quickly and cost effectively. Pricing is based on the nested volume of parts, so with higher volume comes a lower unit cost. Either send us your files, or use our set priced container volumes.

  • Design Assemblies
  • Pilot Production Runs
  • One of Production
  • Repeat Orders
