Point-of-need manufacturing

Mobile production systems for austere environments

Geofabrica builds application-specific expeditionary systems and devices for the emerging field of point-of-need manufacturing. We create solutions for provisional part production, repair, material processing and assembly on site in remote or harsh conditions. 


Our point-of-need solutions include 3D printer farms (racked systems) that support surge production, expeditionary metal 3D printers, and forming and joining capabilities for on-site assembly.

Mobile Microfactories

Geofabrica’s Mobile Microfactories provide next generation solutions to problems with supplying on-site support and accessing to hard-to-source replacement parts in the field.


Our Mobile Microfactories range from systems that are operated in 20-foot ISO containers to small systems that operate in ruggedized cases.

  • On-site fabrication, repair, assembly, and materials processing

  • Predictable performance in environments ranging from extreme heat to freezing temperatures, high humidity, to dusty conditions

  • Operated using digital manufacturing technology

Expeditionary 3D printers

Geofabrica will be introducing 3D printers for metal and plastic part fabrication at the point of need. These additive manufacturing systems are built to work in austere conditions. They can operate outdoors on non-level ground in freezing or high heat temperatures. 

  • Expeditionary and point-of-need fabrication of temporary spares and ad-hoc parts
  • Rugged design and construction for reliability and durability
  • Easily maintained in the field
