Design




Arbor's design team is second to none. Complete with the necessary experience and technology, our workflow moves seamlessly from the concept to design phases.

We work closely with all of our customers in the design phase to seek exactly what they want in an inspection fixture. By requesting customer approval prior to build, we ensure that every design meets the customer's goals and specifications.


Arbor's experienced design engineers utilize the latest CAD technology to provide our customers with optimum 3D and 2D solid model designs that meet or exceed their requirements. All of our CAD designers also possess CAM experience, which allows for a smooth transition from design to CNC machining.
