The Physics Department’s Machine Shop team is involved in the University of Mississippi’s daily operations and serves as a resource to physics colleagues around the country. We are responsible for the design and fabrication of physics test equipment, machines, fixtures, and other devices. We have been involved in many research projects, both in the U.S. and internationally. Our goal is to contribute realistic end products to physicists’ ideas and dreams. Design is carried out using AutoCad and a variety of CAM software to support our CNC (Computer Numerically Controlled) machines. Implementation is accomplished by modern collaboration techniques that follow the process from design, through manufacturing, quality control, and finally shipment to our customers.
