CNC Machine Shop


NOVO has invested heavily to develop a state-of-the-art CNC machine shop as a key component of our rapid product development infrastructure. With complementary processes such as sheet metal fabrication, welding, grinding, and heat treating, we have the ability to fabricate almost any machined or fabricated component in-house. Our machine shop, along with comparable investments in rapid prototyping (3D printing systems) and environmental test equipment, sets NOVO apart from other contract product development companies who rely on outside companies to provide these services. The difference can be seen in the refinement of our designs and in the compression of our project timelines.

Visitors to NOVO often comment that our CNC machine shop is one of the highlights of the facility tour. New employees and independent contractors have commented that they have never worked in a facility—whether for another contract engineering group or an established product company—where design engineers have access to so much R&D test equipment and rapid prototyping capability. All of these benefits are yours when you engage NOVO as your engineering development partner.
