Fabrication

Southwest Prototyping engineers all have long history of hands on fabrication, assembly, installation and maintenance.  With this knowledge, they can best design and fabricate or handoff fabrication to a skilled technician so that not only will your design look good on the benchtop at delivery, it will be designed to last and for ease of maintenance.

Fabrications skills include:

  • Machining both manually and CNC
  • Sheet metal fabrication
  • Cutting and Welding
  • Plastics Vacuforming
  • Watercutting (partner)
  • Casting (plastics and metals)
  • Injection molding (parnter)
  • EDM (partner)
  • PCB fab and assembly (partner)
  • Coatings - powder coating, anodizing, alodine, paint, ...
  • Part marking
  • Bench top system testing
  • Mechancial integration and miniaturization\
