 Fotofab Opens New Forming Facility

Improved capabilities and faster lead times

Dan SimaPhone: 773-463-6211

Fotofab opens brand new forming facilityChicago – 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 requirements.

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 today for design assistance and a fast quote.
