Providing Fabrication and Machining Services
Do you need custom fabrication? Don’t let the word “custom” scare you. The word “custom” to us simply means that we will provide you with a solution that perfectly suits your needs and fits within your budget. We do everything ourselves, under one roof, from design, prototyping, development, metal cutting, fabrication, welding, assembly, electronics, programming, and testing. Since we do it all from one location (right outside of Raleigh, NC USA) our costs and lead times are unbeatable.
Why trust SuperDroid Robots? We have extensive experience designing and building robots. Whatever your needs, we have the skills and experience to customize your project to specifications. It does NOT need to be a robot either! Our engineering and development services include a fully outfitted machine and fabrication/weld shop capable of doing rapid prototyping on site.
After 25 years and thousands of custom projects, SuperDroid Robots has gained an impressive track record as a trustworthy and professional provider of custom projects. Have a look at some of our past successes to get an idea of how you’d like your customized project built.
Your custom project can be as simple as cutting a piece of plastic to a complete design and build of a robot. Let us help you today! Fill out our fabrication request form!

Custom CNC Plasma Cutting Services
Plasma cutting services offer unique advantages over other contemporary methods. We will cut aluminum, stainless steel, and carbon steel. We have a high definition, high frequency plasma cutter that is precisely controlled with servos yielding precise clean cuts with minimal dross and kerf. The kerf will vary with plate thickness, contact us if you need an exact number. Typical kerf are 0.025 inches to 0.050 inches, we will cut with the offsets to ensure the dimensions of your part are precise.
- Precise cutting of materials up to a 1/2" (in.) thick.
- Plasma table capacity: 5' (ft.) x 10' (ft.)
- Materials: mild carbon steel, stainless steel and aluminum
- Stocked sizes:
- 3003 Aluminum: 1/16in, 3/32in, 1/8in, 3/16in, 1/4in, and 3/8in.
- Mild Steel: 16Gage, 14Gage, 11Gage, 10Gage, 3/16in, 1/4in, and 3/8in.
Custom PCB Design and Fabrication
Our in-house PCB assembly system offers a unique solution for your project. From concept to finished product, our team of engineers can provide you with the board you need. Through extensive research we determine the best components and layout, then create a digital design of the board. If the board requires a microcontroller or processor, our team will write the code necessary for it to function.
After the designs are complete, we assemble the board in-house with our Pick and Place system. All boards go through rigorous testing and quality checks, with modifications and redesigns made as necessary. You can trust SuperDroid Robots to build the board you need to get the job done!
Custom CNC Routing Services
Our CNC Router produces consistent, high-quality work at an efficient rate. Let us do your routing and cut down on waste, errors and time. Using a router has benefits over laser cutting or waterjet cutting since we can make partial depth cuts or pockets in the parts, engrave, etc. We have a large table for quicker larger cutting jobs and a smaller table for engraving and smaller jobs.
- Precise routing of materials up to 3" (in.) thick.
- Table1 capacity: 3' (ft.) x 4' (ft.)
- Table2 capacity: 12 inches x 18 inches
Materials: ABS plastic, UHMW plastic, and PETG (chosen for durability) plastic. Our facility can cut more types of wood and plastic.
- Stocked sizes:
- Black ABS (Inches): 1/8, 3/16, 1/4
- Black UHMW (Inches): 1/8, 3/16, 1/4
- Clear PETG (Inches): 1/8
Custom CNC Brake Press Services
Our brake press can bend sheet and plate steel and aluminum. We can set our CNC controls to bend the steel, stainless steel, or aluminum to your precise specifications.
- Precise bending of Aluminum, Steel, and Stainless Steel
- Thicknesses from 1/16" to 1/4"
- Widths up to 48"
Custom CNC Milling Services
CNC milling is a cost effective machining method. Our team can achieve complex shapes, high dimensional tolerances, and smooth finishes in a timely manner. Our milling machine can produce many types of 2D or 3D shapes, contouring, engraving, etc. including engine components, mold tooling, complex mechanisms, enclosures, etc. We have a Bridgeport mill we retrofitted ourselves with the very latest technology of computer aided controls to provide precise machining at an affordable price.
TIG Welding and MIG Welding Services
We offer both TIG welding and MIG welding services from our shop. Our team can work with carbon steel, stainless steel, and aluminum. We have several welders including high frequency pulse welder, spool guns, liquid cooled torches, etc. capable of welding up to 1/2" metal.
- Precise welding of Aluminum, Steel, and Stainless Steel
- Thicknesses from 1/16" to 1/2" thick
