Efficient and accurate prototyping requires a studio that is well equipped with diverse tools. We have a wide range of machining, measurement, and fabrication tools, in our studio to help create precise prototypes quickly! Here are a few photo's from our mechanical studio:
We are accustomed to very unusual mechanical fabrication requirements.
A good selection of gauges and measurement tools is essential for precision prototyping work.
LPKF PCB CNC TOOLS!
That's a lot of acronyms! We have LPKF tools to prototype and test new PCB designs quickly!
MINI CNC CAPABILITIES
Some on site mini CNC tools help with precision part fabrication. Here we have an oldie but a goodie!
Toolmaker's microscopes is one type of tool that we use to make versatile and precise measurements!
Lathes and mills are the work horses of mechanical fabrication. We have these on site for quick prototype fabrication or verification of part designs.
Measuring microscopes are indispensable for precision analysis, precise measurements, and investigative reporting.
ENCLOSURE AND PANEL MACHINING
Our machine shop is always very busy with small panel and enclosure fabrications.
Working closely with the Industrial Designers often requires verification of sample parts.
Electro-mechanical designs often require extremely tight tolerances. Here we are positioning an optical sensor within an SLA model. Positional accuracy must be within <25um. No problem!
3D PRINTED PART VERIFICATIONS
Often new 3D printed part designs will require verification and adjustment before a functional prototype can be constructed.
Sheet metal tools are extremely useful in the prototyping process. We are proud of our older work horses like this box and pan brake!
MORE SHEET METAL AND SHEARING EQUIPMENT
Working with sheet materials is essential for the prototyping and fabrication processes.
PRECISION ELECTRO-MECHANICAL INTERFACES
Here we have the sub-assembly of one of our custom designed test fixture interfaces. The mechanical tolerances are critical.
MECHANICALLY PRECISE TEST FIXTURE INTERFACE
It's not just the X and the Y that are carefully positioned, the Z is also strategically designed!
