capabilities and faster lead times
Dan SimaPhone: 773-463-6211
– October 2, 2008. For over 40 years, Fotofab has been
known for making precision metal parts with industry leading quality
and lead times. With etching turnaround times as short as 1 day, Fotofab
has turned their eye to the wide variety of secondary operations they
perform, opening a brand new forming facility. Although forming
is not a new process for Fotofab, the new facility will allow them to
do it faster than ever, continuing to meet the most demanding schedules.
The new, 6000 square foot facility is located in Elk Grove, IL,
just a short drive from Fotofab’s Chicago facility, minimizing transit
time. Because Fotofab’s customers depend on them for low tooling
costs, Fotofab uses equipment that only requires an inexpensive tooling
set-up for most jobs. This makes Fotofab an ideal source for rapid
prototyping, while 20 presses are capable of supporting large production
Fotofab also offers fast delivery on plating, assembly,
passivation, electropolishing, and a variety of other secondary operations.
An ISO 9001:2000 company, their commitment to quality ensures that parts
arrive on time and per print. Contact a Fotofab representative
