Welcome to our Laboratory

We have a few tools for fixing and building small parts in our Lab in the National Institute for Nanotechnology in Edmonton.  We would like to help in any way that we can.  We could likely fix and troubleshoot broken electronic equipment and small metal tools that require welding for simple repairs.  We have experience with building vacuum systems and small sensor assemblies.    

Equipment

Avenir Light is a clean and stylish font favored by designers. It's easy on the eyes and a great go to font for titles, paragraphs & more.

CNC Lathe with C-Axis and Live Tooling

This allows us to build pressure assemblies and custom sensor prototypes the same day that we finish our designs.  We can build a high pressure feedthrough from design to production in 24 hours.
