5 reasons why product developers choose Dovetailors for small batch production

Dovetailors CNC wood Cutting and CNC furniture component services

Product developers often want to manufacture a small batch of test products or a single prototype in a cost effective way without the expense of a large production run.

The Dovetailors workshop is ideally suited to this type of work for a number of reasons:

  1. We like working with product developers and designers
    As master craftsmen we love focusing on the finer details of our work and we take great interest in other people’s projects. We like to help and you’ll find us approachable and knowledgeable.
  2. We’re more flexible than larger manufacturers
    As a small business ourselves, we’re flexible enough to be able to accommodate small batch jobs. We also understand the life cycle of a design project and can work with you at various stages of the development process.
  3. We can help with the design process
    As designers we can take initial sketches or verbal descriptions and create precise digital 3-D drawings of your concept. From here we can create component descriptions and generate CAD/CAM toolpaths which can be used on our own CNC machinery or which can be exported for use by a third party.
  4. CAD/CAM and CNC hire
    Designers and product developers approach us for a wide range of services, from CNC machine hire to full CAD/CAM design and production. We’re happy to be involved as much or as little as you need.
  5. Tap into our engineering and manufacturing expertise
    Dovetailors has extensive engineering, design and manufacturing expertise in house. Our team is highly skilled in the use of cutting edge computer assisted design technology and traditional furniture making and woodworking techniques. This combination of skills enables us to support a huge variety of entrepreneurs.

Most of all, we’re approachable and we can help you work out the best way to bring a product to market. We have commercial experience as well as technical expertise so whether you’re still at design stage or ready for production, our workshop team will be happy to help.
