Our goal is to provide instrumentation and project development services to the entire Yale community.  
Capabilities include:
  • Abrasive Water Jet Cutting and Laser Cutting: We have one high pressure abrasive water jet cutter, and a medium power laser cutter. These can be best thought of as computer-controlled bands saws; they are largely used to cut through flat material stock.  The laser cutter can also be used to etch various materials.
  • 3D Printing: We have a small selection of 3D printers with a variety of materials to print with, including a resin based SLA printer.  We in general do not work as a print service; the printers are primarily used as part of the prototyping process.
  • Tube welding:  We have a Swagelok M200 orbital tube welder with a variety of collets for welding stainless steel tubing for high purity gas services and vacuum systems.  
  • Electronics prototyping:  We have experience with a variety of electronics monitoring and control systems.
  • General design work: We have designed instruments and parts for groups across campus. 
  • Training:  We put on a variety of workshops throughout the year that anyone can sign up for.
