The Reinberger Product and Process Development Laboratories

The Reinberger Product and Process Development Laboratories consists of approximately 1600 square feet of laboratory and office space dedicated to computer-aided engineering activities. The computer numerical control (CNC) laboratory includes both two industrial sized machine tools and two desktop machine tools with additional space for lecture and group project activities. The CNC machine tools located in the laboratory are; a HAAS VF-3 4 axis-machining center and a HAAS Hl-2 2 axis lathe. A Mitutoyo coordinate measuring machine (CMM) located in its own laboratory space completes the facilities. The CMM enables students to inspect their manufactured components to a very degree of precision.

The laboratory is used to support both undergraduate and graduate manufacturing courses (EMAE 390, EMAE 490).
