Mechanical Prototyping Lab

The CIE's Mechanical Prototyping Laboratory is equipped with the machinery and process knowledge necessary to assist inventors, entrepreneurs, and companies large and small with bringing their ideas closer to reality.


While not a production shop, we work with customers to build the first, second or third iteration of their designs, giving them the ability to demonstrate their tech to investors obtain patents or perform testing prior to final manufacturing.

Whether metal, plastic, sheet metal or a combination, our skilled staff and professional machines help companies develop and refine designs to fit their individual needs.

Let us demonstrate the benefits of working with the CIE. 

Call to schedule an appointment with our staff to discuss your individual needs.
