We are a full-service, family-run, short-run design and automation machine shop, providing high quality components at an affordable price, to clients across the United States, Canada, South America and Europe. We guarantee our products, whether that part is produced manually by combining lathe, vertical milling, grinding & more, or by utilizing more technical methods, such as Wire EDM (Electrical Discharge Machining), CNC (Computer Numeric Control).We offer full-serviceprecision CNC machining, 4 and 5 axis machining, short run machining, and more for affordable and accurate machine components in Wisconsin.

Wire EDM & CNC

Electrical Discharge Machining (EDM) is also referred to as spark machining, spark eroding, burning, die sinking, wire burning or wire erosion. It is a manufacturing process whereby a desired shape is obtained by using electrical discharges.

Computer Numerical Control (CNC), is the systematic programming and activation of a sequential process that will manufacture or machine a part, saving the operator significant time, and labor.

Full Service

Machine Services We Offer

Jig & Fixture

MD Design & Automation designs and manufactures precision jigs and fixtures for varying applications in the manufacturing/production line. Our highly skilled, dedicated and experienced engineering experts are able to design customized solutions to meet the differing requirements for various industries, based on your specifications. We manufacture precision parts for the transportation, automotive, food processing, medical, mining, precision engineering industries, and more.


CNC Machining

CNC (Computer Numerical Control) Machining is capable of repeatedly producing complex 3D shapes, that would be impossible to achieve with manual machining, offering unparalleled precision for producing metal and plastic parts. We combine the latest CNC machining and turning processes with our over 100 years of combined experience to deliver high quality, on-demand parts.


Jig Grinding

Whether the job is internal diameter (ID) grinding, outside diameter (OD) grinding, surface grinding, jig grinding, planetary grinding, or CNC grinding, the highly skilled MD Design & Automation machinists will deliver quality results on individual pieces, or batches of hundreds. We work with ferrous metals, stainless steel, non-ferrous metals, and more. We'll meet your engineering specifications and deliver the precise results you expect.


CMM Inspections

Our Dimensional Inspection services are complete with a Ultra High Accuracy - Coordinate Measuring Machine (CMM), as well as a full range of precision dimensional measurement instruments. We are able to provide precision measurements in a timely and efficient manner.


Gage Work

We provide a variety of Gage work, including but not limited to inner diameter (ID), outer diameter (OD), and plug gages, and most Go/No-Go gaging. We develop gages for a number of industries including manufacturing, labs and building processes. We can develop gages at a variety of price points, and always guarantee the quality of our work.


Wire EDM

Whether prototypes production runs, MD Design & Automation offers wire EDM services to match your requirements, and exceed your expectations. Since no cutting forces are present, wire EDM is ideal for delicate parts, and no additional tooling is required, so delivery times are short. With multiple passes, wire EDM can also achieve a mirror-like finish.



Our design & manufacturing team has been strategically trained to build high-quality prototypes. Partnering with us, we'll collaborate with you on your project, ensuring the right materials are used for each individual application. We can help you design or manufacture your vision. Our new, modern shop is equipped with the skilled team members, software, hardware, machines & tools needed to bring almost any new product and idea to life.


Repair Work

When run-down or broken equipment creates a problem for your machinery or facility, our repair services are ready to get you up and running again. Serving clients in multiple industries, we offer part inspection and repair services. We also develop and manufacture custom special machinery, tools, dies, and other parts needed for maintenance and repair. We possess the knowledge and tools to replace and recreate original and obsolete equipment from drawings, sketches, as well as most file types, including SolidWorks™ and CamWorks™.


Specialized Replacement Parts

Do you need a part that's out of production, or out of stock, and you just can't wait? We can help. Our team has years of experience in creating specialized replacement parts, for many applications and many industries. Contact us today.

Specialized Replacement Parts

Design to Full Drawing to Production

As a full-service shop, we'll partner and work with you to define your specifications, and design the product you want and need. From medical to mining, we can design your tool, create a full-drawing, and manufacture it in our new facility. Get in touch with us, to discuss your next idea.


Short Run Production
