Precision Services With Guaranteed Satisfaction

Our experienced team will ensure you receive the best product and services, on time and at a competitive price point. Here are a few of the services we offer. If you have questions, give us a call.

Reverse Engineering

What is Reverse Engineering?

Reverse Engineering is the process of taking a finished product and reconstructing design data in a format from which new parts or molds can be reproduced. Let's discuss your next project.

Redesign & Reverse Engineering

MD Design & Automation's expertise in redesign & reverse engineering has helped many customers bring new life to their machines, and has helped them improve their business.

We build one-of-a-kind replacement parts for customer's machines, because the machine's replacement parts are no longer in production. We also create contemporary, easy-to-use permanent molds, replacing old and rotted wood molds for concrete and plaster designs.

Focus On Quality

The manufacturing process today requires us to move quickly, accurately and efficiently. Our success requires us to deliver quality and service - day in and day out. We have established quality standards that require us to stringently monitor all projects and to ensure standards are met on every part we produce as well as every service we offer including jig grinding, precision grinding, and full-service CNC tooling and grinding in Wisconsin.

Quality standards start with our design area. We offer a full range of services using the latest software for importing CAD files and scanning parts. We can quickly download a full complement of Native CAD files and DMIS formats. In addition, we have a direct computer control measuring machine allowing us to inspect high-tolerance parts and produce printed reports for analysis. We can also scan parts with CMM and import these files for electronic file purposes, then import into CAM package for machining. We can then import the data back into PC-DMIS, and this file can now be used as a master to inspect the machined part.

Our #1 Quality Solution Program includes a mandatory first piece inspection, constant in-process inspection and a final detailed inspection using a standard lot process.
These checks are backed by our Satisfaction Guarantee: If the part does not match your specification, you don't pay, and we will gladly replace the part!

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 many markets, including the transportation, automotive, food processing, medical, mining, precision engineering industries, and more.

CMM Fixture

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 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.
