All TechShop facilities are designed to put a full range of tools and equipment at your command so you can work on your projects without worrying about how you are going to tackle each step. Need to punch a hole in sheet metal? Use the large rotary punch. Want to spot weld an enclosure? The spot welder is in the welding room. Trying to cut a keyway in a gear bore? The broach sets are in the tool cabinet. Everything is here for your use.
Even if you have never used most of the tools and equipment that TechShop has available, that's not a problem. TechShop offers training on every piece of equipment in the facility. The wide range of classes lets you learn how to use the tools and equipment as you need them.
Our climate-controlled TechShop facilities typically feature a 15,000+ square foot floor plan including classroom and workshop space, a creative brainstorming lounge, a retail store offering convenience materials and consumables and ample, well-lit parking.
