Facilities

SRG Lab in Link Hall 019 currently features the following major pieces of equipment for mechanical testing and materials fabrication:

Instron Microtester:

This is a universal tabletop testing system with x-y-theta mechanical stage and 5N and 100N load cells .

Objet30 Prime 3D Printer:

This Objet30 Prime 3D printer is a desktop system to print realistic models with small moving parts, thin walls and smooth, paintable surfaces. Using PolyJet 3D printing technology, the Objet24 features 28ยต print layers and a 240 x 200 x 150 mm (9.45 x 7.87 x 5.9 in) tray size. The Objet30 produces highly accurate models for visual aids, fit and assembly testing and functional applications. It uses rigid white opaque material (VeroWhitePlus[m.stratasys.com]), which is perfect for general-purpose 3D modeling and prototyping. Combining dimensional stability and high-detail visualization, this photopolymer closely resembles the look of the end product. It can be painted, drilled, machined or used for vacuum forming.

Bachur and Associates Model LS-5 (500W) NUV exposure system with a dry film photoresist laminator:

Spinbox Electrospinning system:

Across International Vacuum Ovens :

This 1.9 Cubic Ft vacuum oven features heating from 5 sides, which generates uniform temperature distribution inside the chamber. Also, with an attached 9 cfm Dual-Stage pump with mist filter it can be used for drying, desiccating, evaporation and outgassing, among others.

Carver Heat Press Machine Model 5420 with digital control of temperature:

SPI Spin Coater:

THINKY Centrifugal Mixer:
