Fotofab Remains Fully Operational
Yes, We’re Open! Fotofab manufactures essential parts for the medical market and has, therefore, remained open. As businesses begin reopening, the health and safety of our employees and customers is still our number one goal.
Fotofab proudly services US and International customers.
Fotofab remains fully operational with room to grow production as our hearts remain with those working the front lines of the COVID-19 pandemic. We have worked with design engineers in the medical industry for decades and we are ready to work with the many non-traditional companies who are now turning their attention to the coronavirus fight.
Our production and quality teams are tirelessly fabricating metal parts that aid in the relief effort. Fotofab is dedicated to filling the supply-chain gaps so our customers’ needs are met around the world.
Today, our parts can be found in medical devices used for COVID-19 testing and ventilators in hospitals across the nation.

Additional Services During COVID-19
Fotofab offers a variety of value-added services for our photochemically etched metal parts, including:
Diffusion (vacuum) bonding is another service we offer. It allows smaller features in thicker material, as in medical device capillaries. This is not possible with the laser cutting process and is too time-consuming with machining.
We work with OEMs to deliver ready- to- use parts that are exact to print. In these stressful times, our team is doubling down to get quotes back within 2 business days and delivering parts in as little as 3 business days.
The metal used in our photochemical etching process is sourced from the United States and manufactured in our Chicago, IL location.
