2. The SRC Machine Shop provides a valuable in-house capability for upgrades to the electron storage ring, for beamline construction, and for supporting the hardware needs of our experimenters. The machine shop is staffed by an Instrument Maker with 15+ years of machining experience and 30+ years of welding experience. Stainless steel and aluminum vacuum components can be welded using the TIG process to pass demanding UHV leak checks. The shop is equipped with a Bridgeport Vertical Mill, a Hardinge Toolroom Lathe and a Mitsumi Surface Grinder that can achieve dimensional tolerances of ±0.001 in. ( 25 μm ), ±0.0005 in. ( 13 μm ) and ±0.0001 ( 2.5 μm ) respectively. The shop is capable of working with a wide variety of metals and synthetic materials and has made diverse types and sizes of components. Recent examples of the quality components produced by the machine shop include the new, more robust, dipole vacuum tanks and timely support for experimenters needing repairs on their sample cold stage. CNC machines are also available at neighboring PSL for projects involving multiple, repeat machining processes. For more information please contact Mike Fisher at firstname.lastname@example.org.
