The FABLAB has an extensive array of digital fabrication and prototyping equipment to address
a broad range of ideas and requirements.
The lab user can create a rapid, proof-of-concept prototype to validate product design and assist in determining market viability.
Current MCC FABLAB Equipment:
The Epilog 50 watt CO2 laser is capable of engraving, marking, and/or cutting various materials such as; paper, cardboard, wood, glass, leather, laserable plastic, acrylic, corian, and marble.
The Roland Programmable Vinyl Cutter is capable of producing electronic copper circuit paths, decals, and signage from a variety of different vinyl material types.
This machine can perform precision, large format, cutting, drilling, machining, and shaping operations on products up to 4 feet by 8 feet. The system uses standard G-code programming and input from several CAD systems.
This 3-D printer creates prototype parts directly from 3-D CAD files using ABS plastic. The dimension has a 10 inch by 10 inch by 12 inch work envelope.
Plasma cutters can be used to produce complex shapes on various types of metal from low carbon steel and soft cast iron to high carbon and stainless steels, aluminum, brass, and bronze.
The FABLAB includes basic electrical design and test equipment to develop circuit designs and control systems.
