Our Machine shop serves both the physics and chemistry departments and has a complete set of state of the art machine tools. Our foreman, Bill Schneider, leads the effort. He, Eric Paduch, and Marc Lesko provide highly skilled machine shop support to our department's research and teaching activities.
Machine Shop Office Hours:Mon-Fri 10:30am-11:30am
In addition to a full complement of milling machines, lathes, grinders, etc., our shop has a Computer Numerically Controlled (CNC) milling machine and sophisticated equipment for ultra-high vacuum welding. Our CNC milling machine has been used for high volume fabrication of parts for experiments at SLAC, Fermilab, and CEBAF. We have welded several large vacuum chambers for experiments in surface science and condensed matter physics.
We have excellent computer facilities including computer-aided design and manufacturing programs.
Users who make use of our machine shop regularly
can use our online tracking system to aid submission and progress of work
being performed in the Machine Shop. Access to the system is restricted to
Rutgers University computers.
The Student Shop is available for working on official Physics & Chemistry Department projects. Access to the Student Shop is controlled by key-card. Training is required to be given access to the student shop. More information is available here..
