3-layer bonded acrylic dispensing manifold

Diffusion Bonded Manifolds

Diffusion bonded manifolds are our core competency at Piedmont CMG. Our proprietary diffusion bonding technology is unrivaled in the industry and supplies OEMs around the world with critical parts and assemblies that are central to the design of their application.

4-layer bonded acrylic manifold

Fluidic Manifolds

Fluidic Manifolds are a one-piece solution to controlling and directing reagents, chemicals, or other fluids through dozens of pathways to various destinations within an application. They allow for the easy connection of tubes, pumps, valves, sensors, and any other fluid control/testing device that is desired by the design engineers.

Laser Welded Manifold

Laser Welded Manifolds

Laser welded manifolds use focused laser radiation to bond plastic materials. Learn more about laser welding or contact us anytime!

CNC Machined Manifolds Ultem (PEI) & Acrylic (PMMA)

CNC Machined Manifolds

Machined manifolds are a cost-effective solution when straight fluid paths satisfy the requirements of an application. Machining manifolds opens the process and design up to a wide variety of materials that can meet the most demanding chemical, thermal, and tensile properties.

bonded acrylic microfluidics

Microfluidic Manifolds

Microfluidic manifolds are an evolving technology utilized in many cutting-edge applications across a variety of industries. We manufacture microfluidic components with precision and repeatability to strict specifications.

Vapor Polished Machined Plastic Medical Manifold

Pneumatic Manifolds

Pneumatic Manifolds are integrated into an assembly to provide a junction for directing compressed air or gas in a pneumatic system. These manifolds can be as simple or complex as the design requires, and can be made from a wide variety of plastic materials.
