What if manufacturers never had to own or operate a machining center again?

We are building 10x Efficient Machining as a Service.

What we do

We are building the world’s most efficient machine shop.

Our mix of custom hardware and software enables us to offer the lowest-cost and most efficient machining service in the world to our commercial partners. Clients use a web interface to order parts which are then machined with minimal human intervention.

Frequently Asked Questions

How will you achieve higher efficiency vs existing machine shops?

We run many smaller machines in parallel vs larger, more expensive machines in series. Even though larger machines may be capable of faster cycle times, our smaller machines add up to a massive economic advantage and have higher throughput for the same space and capital investment.


Why haven't others in the industry already done this?

At our core we have a software-enabled process innovation. We are not heavily innovating in how machines are built or operate. Others in the industry are slowly adding more automation to their products. However, they are trying to optimize the existing process designed around human operators, while we are building a new one designed around automation. We believe the incremental approach of industry incumbents leaves too much value on the table, so our solution leverages existing technologies to help manufacturing take a long-overdue leap forward.


Who are your customers?

Our ideal customer needs 200-10,000 parts a month. Contact us if your volume needs are different. We are especially interested in customers who have many configurations of the same part. Customization is often free with our technology. For example, we can engrave unique serial numbers on every part in a run or handle different hole sizes/locations at no additional cost.


What size parts can you manufacture?

Currently: 250x350x15mm flat stock maximum size. However, we may be able to accommodate other stock sizes. Please contact us to see if we can meet your needs.

We will expand capabilities as our platform matures, please join our mailing list if you are interested in following our progress.


What materials can be used?

Currently: Wood, Plastic, Soft Aluminum, Non Glass Fiber Reinforced Composites

We will expand capabilities as our platform matures,please join our mailing list if you are interested in following our progress.


What tolerance can be expected?

Currently: +/- 0.2mm

We will expand capabilities as our platform matures, please join our mailing list if you are interested in following our progress.


What kind of operations can your machines run?

Currently we offer 2.5D machining from one side with no set-up changes. We do not offer threaded holes.

We will expand capabilities as our platform matures, please join our mailing list if you are interested in following our progress.


Is there a minimum or maximum order quantity?

Since we are in alpha testing we are very selective with the number of parts we are producing. Please contact us to see if we can meet your needs.
