Fathom is a single-source manufacturer ready to assist you in your manufacturing project, from concept to production and more. We offer a wide variety of advanced digital manufacturing services to create high-quality products and prototypes for various industries.
Here are some of the advanced digital manufacturing services we offer / /
Products such as chassis, brackets, enclosures and more can be produced via sheet metal fabrication. Our advanced digital manufacturing services include various sheet metal fabrication solutions. Multiple subtractive manufacturing processes fall under the category of sheet metal fabrication. Here are some of our advanced and digitally-oriented manufacturing services specific to sheet metal fabrication / /
Sheet metal prototyping uses a specialized fabrication processes to produce a quick, durable and versatile prototype. Your custom sheet metal prototype can help you gather valuable feedback about your design, help your team finalize the product before launch and reduce costs.
Our facilities can handle precision sheet metal manufacturing at scale as a trusted contract manufacturer to outsource production.
Controlled by CNC technology, the water jet can cut a range of soft and hard materials. For softer materials, a pure water stream may be used. For harder materials, an abrasive mixed with water may be used. The water jet is powered by a high-pressure pump which forces water through the nozzle to create precise cuts.
Micro water jet cutting uses water jet cutting on a micro-level. Micro jet cutting can produce small components for many industries where there is no room for error including electronics, aerospace, aviation and more.
There are multiple types of laser cutting machines available in gas (CO2), liquid or solid-state (fiber optic). Laser cutting uses a high-powered laser beam to cut, engrave or mark material.
A subtractive manufacturing method, chemical etching selectively removes material using baths of temperature-controlled etching chemicals. The resulting part is precise with great intricacies.
CNC machining is another category of advanced digital manufacturing that Fathom offers. CNC machining allows for rapid prototyping with various surface finishes. A completely automated process, the repeatability of CNC machining makes it easy to transition from prototype to high volume manufacturing. Here are some more in-depth CNC machining services offered by Fathom / /
Fathom offers advanced machine shop services. As a digital-first manufacturer, Fathom has the machines and tools to support subtractive manufacturing. Cutting, drilling, stamping, forming and more are just some of the advanced services we can offer as a result of our digital manufacturing machines and processes.
Wire EDM is another CNC-based advanced manufacturing service offered by Fathom. During wire EDM, a metal piece is submerged into de-ionized water (dielectric). An electrically charged thin metal wire (no thicker than hair) melts through the metal using heat from the electrical sparks. The wire does not make contact with the workpiece. The voltage allows the spark to jump the gap between the wire and the workpiece, and the material begins to melt. The wire holds one side of the charge, while the conductive material holds the other side. The liquid dielectric controls the electrical sparks, cools, and flushes away the cut material.
Urethane casting is yet another advanced manufacturing service Fathom offers. During urethane casting, a master pattern is first designed or supplied by the customer. The master pattern is then placed into liquid silicone to form a mold. Once the silicone mold has cured, it is halved and the master pattern is removed. The cavity left behind is used for casting. Urethane or other resins are added to the mold tool and cured.
Injection molding is a common manufacturing method that is capable of producing parts of high quality. However, Fathom’s advanced digital manufacturing approach to injection molding allows us to take on various projects of varying complexity. Here are some of the ways Fathom and ICOMold by Fathom support injection molding projects / /
Our China production center is located in Shenzhen, China, FPL. Our China-based facility offers prototyping, manufacturing, quality assurance/control, engineering and logistics/procurement services.
