What do we do?

Md design & automation has the full capability along with the expertise to manufacture any design, from a prototype to a high-volume production model. Our facility is equipped to produce extremely accurate machined parts, including precision components and assemblies. It features high-speed horizontal and vertical machining centers, as well as fully automatic inspection equipment.

The manufacturing industry faces two problems due to its massive production. First, the produced equipment has a short lifespan because it is either beyond obsolescence or requires frequent maintenance.

Second, the market demand has led to price competition, which prevents companies from improving their profit margins because of the need to sell their products at lower prices. That’s where we come in. We offer affordable and quality prototyping and designing, lasting manufacturing products in Wisconsin.
