Mechanical Development Group (MDG) of the Department of Physics specializes in designing, creating, testing, modifying and repairing research equipment and teaching apparatus, i.e., mechanical, electro- and opto-mechanical devices, vacuum chambers and pressure vessels, molds, models, electronics enclosures/test specimens. By coupling the efficiency of CNC machining with the high precision of Wire & Ram EDM we can create unique or difficult-to-fabricate components. We produce prototype or production quantities of fixtures, fabricated assemblies and complex precision parts. Tolerances of +/- .001" are achieved by any of our skilled associates operating in our climate-controlled 14,500 sq. ft. facility. The MDG has three primary support activities: engineering, fabrication and materials sales.

The MDG is a self-support operation, i.e., all costs associated with projects and activities will be billed to the organization requesting services. Rates include labor, materials, tools, and time required to set up and clean up for each project.
