Our skilled staffs will assist UIC staff and others in designing and/or fabricating items utilizing the latest CAD/CAM software, which can be used for full 3-axis and 3-D contour milling.

We are able to work with various metals (e.g. stainless and alloy steels, titanium, lead, platinum, brass, aluminum, copper, sheet metal), plastics (e.g. acrylic, acetate, acetal, polypropylene, polystyrene, nylon, PVC, teflon, polycarbonates, polyethylene, engineered plastics), wood, wood composites and machinable ceramics.

Our electronics shop offers complete electronic services including the maintenance and repair of electronic devices. We also design and fabricate customized electronic equipment that may not be commercially available.

Please contact us for the services you need.
