Student Machine Shop

Faculty Supervisor: G. Engel
Technical Staff: L. Mazzenga

Our fully equipped student machine shop plays a vital role in training MRSEC undergraduates, REU students, graduate students, and postdocs in the basics of machining and fabrication, and gives researchers the flexibility to design and produce machined parts and research prototypes. Equipment includes several Bridgeport mills, Hardinge lathes, a CAD workstation, and a welding station. The shop has been tremendously successful due to exceptionally qualified staff available for consultation and training. Training and safety classes are regularly offered during the year and are prerequisites for working in the student shop. A Tormach PCNC milling machine was recently added.
