Centre Capability

Overview: The Science Technology Centre (STC) is a one stop machine shop for all your design and custom fabrication needs. From prototyping to final production runs, we can produce one – or one thousand – individual parts or complete assemblies to meet our clients’ needs. Utilizing state of the art CAD/CAM software, we’ve designed and manufactured everything from complex devices to individual screws; our parts have been installed underground as part of CERN and the SNO lab, and sent into space with NASA! We work closely with our clients, offering personalized service and expert advice throughout all stages of the production process, from design conception all the way through to final installation. Initial consultations are free, and we always provide an estimate prior to starting production.

Centre Capacity: Precision CNC Machining – including 5 axis, Waterjet cutting, Welding TIG/MIG, CAD/CAM, Proto-typing, Repair Services, Technical and conceptual design assistance.

Equipment: Hass VF2YT Milling Center 5 Axis Trunnion, Hass SL20 Lathe – Live Tooling, Mitsui Seiki 20–Tools CNC Milling Center, Maho 4 axis CNC, Lilian Acu-Rite CNC Mill, Hardinge Lathes, Deckel Mill, Piranha Iron worker, Icoca Lathe.
