We have a facility for machining precision micro component using KERN EVO Ultra Precision, high speed, 5 axis Micro Machining Center at Manufacturing Engineering Section, Department of Mechanical Engineering. The specifications of the machine and other details are given below.
Any one interested in using this facility for making micro parts or prototype for research work may please contact Prof. Shunmugam or Dr. G.L. Samuel directly. Kindly note that the micro-tools are consumables and hence have to be procured by the users. For regular parts, standard fixtures are available with us. However, complex parts may require dedicated fixtures.
