Our goal is to inspire and enable innovation and new technology by providing services with accessibility and pricing that will revolutionize manufacturing on a global scale.
Precision Apertures for less than $50.
In these economic challenging times, Potomac Photonics stands ready to provide you with the most cost-effective micromachining services in the industry. Our pricing structure is extremely flexible and there is no minimum charge. Prototyping typically involves a nominal set-up /programming charge and the time required to fabricate the part. Even before a project shifts to production, our Engineering Team works closely with your Design and Procurement personnel to understand your future cost targets in order to ensure that a manufacturing process that can meet these goals is developed. In addition, we are continually evaluating and working to optimize all of our projects to find ways to cut costs and improve quality.
Important factors to consider related to micromachining and cost include:
Thickness of material
Number of features / cut length
Form factor of part (flat or 3D)
Potomac has the capability to machine most materials and will be happy to discuss the cost advantages of selecting one type over another. In some cases the cut rate and cost can be reduced for several factors simply by changing to a different material or thickness.
If you are developing or working on a part that requires precise features, please contact us today to find our why Potomac is the most cost competitive manufacturer of small parts.
In the ever-evolving realm of microfluidics, the pivot from traditional materials to advanced alternatives is becoming increasingly evident. These “labs-on-a-chip” devices, pivotal in biological research, diagnostics, and drug delivery, owe their efficacy to the careful selection of materials and manufacturing methodologies. Historically, Polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS) has dominated the microfluidic landscape. Its biocompatibility, flexibility, and innate transparency…
Silicon wafers serve as a fundamental component in various technologies, and Potomac Photonics is leading the charge in their manufacturing and optimization. This industry front-runner has made significant strides in refining techniques for precise feature creation and hole drilling in silicon wafers, which includes wafer dicing and detailed patterning for diverse applications. Central Role of…
Generated by Microfluidic Organ-On-A-Chip Devices For decades the U.S. Food and Drug Administration has depended upon results from animal trials to prove the safety and efficacy of pharmaceuticals. Yet the methodology is far from reliable. Only 10% of the drugs that move from animal testing to human clinical trials succeeds. Such low yields from a…
