Not that long ago such a question would have me reaching for the name of a good machine shop. One capable not only of machining the 316 S.S., complete with ports and requisite threads, but of getting the Ra finish on the wetted surface just right, but not today. Instead, I’m going to recommend an industry leading manufacturer of benchtop bioreactors with decades of experience in the design and manufacture of traditional bioreactor headplates, ports and associated accessories. That just so happens to now have the ability to manufacture fully customizable headplates, ports and the like by utilizing 3D printing technology.
