Machine & Welding Shop
A machine shop and welding shop is available for the construction and fabrication of models, instrumentation, specialized experimental and testing equipment, and prototyping.
The machine shop has a bridge port mill and two lathes with tooling to do most jobs as well as a laydown saw for cutting of small to large metals. Welding capabilities include all types of materials and material thicknesses including gas tungsten arc (TIG), shielded metal arc (Stick) and metal inert gas (MIG) welding.
The MIG welder is a small 110v unit that is used with material up to 1/4” thick. It is very portable and used on equipment that cannot be brought to the welding shop. The stick welder is good for all thickness of material and is used primarily for thick steel. The TIG welder is used for stainless steel and aluminum. A small plasma cutter for up to 1/4” steel, stainless steel, and aluminum is also available.
