Help build next-gen manufacturing

We are solving the machinist shortage that constrains domestic capacity for precision space components. Until now, high-precision results have depended on the skill of the machinist. While the demand for precision components is on the rise, the workforce is shrinking. Our automation is like having the best machinist at every machine, enabling unprecedented scalability for custom precision components.
