Machine Shop

The craftsmen here are experts in the design and fabrication of research equipment using metal, wood and plexiglass. These machinists use a variety of tools, including a Computer Numerical Controlled (CNC) milling machine that carries out precision work that cannot be done by hand, to craft and design custom pieces specifically for your research needs.
