Cold Metals Lab

Turn metal stock into chips with access to saws, mills, lathes, benders, presses, and more.

Cold Metals Lab Overview

In-house technical staff can provide support for iterative prototyping, technical training sessions, or small volume production runs. mHUB creates a welcoming space to prototype and iterate quickly with various 3D printing technologies ideal for cost-effective, low-volume production.
