Distributed circular manufacturing of your hardware. From batch size 1.

Refaqt develops microfactories for the on-demand circular production of mechanical components and products. Build your own FAQTORY or have your PROJEQT manufactured by our production network. 


Produce custom mechanical components easily and affordably

We build affordable micro-factories for local production and repair and share how we do it. Join us and copy our machines and solutions. Start with our 3-axis CNC milling machine and produce metal components with high quality.


Have your hardware produced and distributed

Setting up and scaling your production from a few to thousands of units is hard. We help you to manufacture and distribute your project, from batch size 1. Launch your product on our microfactory network.

How it works.

Creators upload their PROJEQT. Refaqt validates the manufacturability and creates the production recipes.

Refaqt equips its Producers with the right machines, tools and materials or helps installing a FAQTORY at your premises. 

Products and components are locally produced and distributed whenever you need them. Take-back components are reintegrated.

Our mission

To build an open, distributed manufacturing ecosystem in which anyone can locally produce, repair, and refurbish high-quality mechanical products and all contributors get fairly rewarded.

We believe sustainable manufacturing is localized and open-source.

Localized production

Big overseas factories are efficient for stable mass production, but too rigid to create a flexible supply of spare parts for decades to come.

We solve this by building small factories that can locally produce parts on demand.


How can you efficiently repair something if it is not clear how to do it, and you cannot find spare parts?  

We freely share designs and manufacturing know-how so that everyone can produce any product or component, anywhere in the world.

Help us build the future of manufacturing.
