Welding and machining experts, great for small scale products such as endovascular medical devices

Speed 4 / Price 4 / Quality 4

Cal weld specializes in welding on smaller devices and because of such we have been using them as a vendor to help us with our spot welding process in house. They have expertise in working with nitinol, stainless, and aluminum and have been able to help us incorporate a welding process that we can reliably use for in-house production. They are located in northern california but they will travel anywhere and help you set something up in house or if you're local you can always stop by their shop to see what kind of work they do. Their pricing is very fair I'd say and I have always been happy with the quality of work that they provide whether it be in house expertise or ordering lots that they do at their own facility.

We have used Cal Weld for our cnc needs. They are experts in CNC in metal and plastic which is very useful for us since we can use them for both services. They are very quick and their service is second to none. I have always been pleased with the final product that we have received from them. We mostly use them for prototyping medical devices or for fixtures that we need in our assembly line. They are a little bit on the expensive side but what machinist isn't? They get their job done and they get it done quickly without any questions. You can rely on them to come through on their word. I have no problems recommending them to others and will continue to use them for years to come.

We began working with Cal Weld during the testing phase of our latest product offering.

They not only did a great job of addressing point we had brought up, but they used their expertise in the industry to bring up issues we had not thought about. This alone saves up a great amount of money in future quality failures in our product. Cal Weld is a true professional in the industry. I would recommend giving them a chance.
