Manufacturing

CNC

When it comes time to cut your parts, you can trust us to make the right connections. We'll help you locate an amazing machine shop, or even help you optimize your CNC toolpaths for your own machine. Whether your parts require 3- or 5-axis milling, SWARF milling, Swiss Milling, routing, or lathe, our CNC experts have the tools to produce your parts. With a vast network of machine shops across the country that produce parts for a staggering array of industries, we can help you take your designs from 3D Model to finished product while remaining under budget.

Plastic injection molding

If you design plastic injection molded parts, look no further than Converge to get those parts manufactured. We can assist in the initial design stages of your plastic injection parts to ensure that the part has enough draft where it's needed and will release from the mold appropriately. We can also assist in the creation of the mold, and simulation of the design so you can see how the liquid plastic will interact with the mold. Once the initial designs are completed, we can put you in contact with one of over 50 plastic injection molders in the country to make sure that your molds and parts come in under budget.

laser/plasma cutting

If you've ever considered cutting your parts with a Laser or Plasma cutter, but dismissed the notion because of expense, now's the time to reconsider. More and more machine shops have embraced this technology, and for many designs, Laser/Plasma cutting is best way to cut those parts from a cost and quality basis. Let us connect you with one of our many machine shops to discuss budget and timeframe for your Laser/Plasma cut parts.

waterjet

What if your cut parts need to be made of a material that can't be exposed to the kind of heat created by CNC or Laser/Plasma? In this case, Waterjet is the manufacturing process of choice. If you're unsure if Waterjet cutting would work for your parts, we'd be glad to discuss the pros and cons of this manufacturing method with you. Once you decide to go this route, we will put you in contact with the right shops to get your project done on time and under budget.

3d printing

3D Printing has been the buzzword of the manufacturing industry for the past few years. Although this technology is over 30 years old, it has just recently become commercially viable for many designs and products that would traditionally be manufactured by injection molding, or CNC. 3D Printed parts take advantage of the benefits offered by a number of materials, including metal, plastic, and ceramics. Our vast network of maker-spaces and 3D Printing Houses will give you a several options to consider when looking to 3D Print your CAD models.

metal casting

Although we're constantly on the lookout for the next greatest thing in manufacturing, sometimes the most tried and true manufacturing method is the ticket. Over the past millennia, Metal Casting has been perfected as a manufacturing method for industrial metal parts. There is an art to designing Metal Casted parts and our experts have all spent ample time designing and dealing with the difficulties of Metal Casting. Trust our network of Metal Casters to quote you a fair price for a high-quality product when it's time for your next estimate.
