Manufacturing Tool Shop and Project Area

The tool shop is used for manufacturing and prototyping of mechanical systems for educational and research purposes.

In the tool shop, there is access to standard manufacturing processes including additive, forming, joining and material-removal technologies.

Research activities

The facility is used for research and development activities related to the installation and testing of mechanical systems. Installations include student thesis work, industrial collaboration and research driven projects.

The tool shop provides access to a library of components for studying specific technologies for polymeric manufacturing, energy conversion, heat and mass transfer, vibrations of machinery and machine elements. Additionally, there is an installation for small-scale wind tunnel fluid dynamics experiments.
