Precision Machining Laboratory

The Precision Machining Laboratory houses several machines including a Hardinge Cobra 42 CNC Turning Center, a Cincinnati Arrow 500 VMC CNC Milling Machine, a Tormax Model 13-5 ROMI Engine Lathe, and a Bridgeport Legend Series I Milling Machine. The lab also has a range of process monitoring capability such as a Kistler 3-axis dynamometer (9257B) for cutting force measurements, acoustic emission sensors for tool wear monitoring, as well as thermocouples for cutting tool temperatures.
