The Physics and Astronomy Machine Shop

Physics and Astronomy Machine Shop


The Western Physics and Astronomy Machine Shop specializes in the design and manufacture of scientific equipment for the various and diverse research teams and laboratories within the Faculty of Science. 

With our extensive technical expertise we assist the researcher to take their ideas and sketches from concept to CAD Models to precision finished parts and devices. 

We strive to provide quality workmanship in a variety of materials in a safe, cost effective and timely manner.

Note that we now enjoy our newly renovated shop facilities in the southwest corner of the ground (basement) floor (PAB 6).

In January of 2015 we acquired a large Fortus 450 3-D printer. The model brain shown in the image above was printed for Dr. Andrea Soddu of the Brain and Mind Institute.
