Our company occupies 33,000 sq. ft. of building space of which 25,000 sq. ft. are laboratories, design, and shop facilities.
STI has a fully equipped machine shop. Its capabilities include a large computer numerically controlled (CNC) milling machine, which allows for rapid production of complicated precision work and production runs. This CNC milling machine is fully integrated with the CAD systems giving STI a complete computer aided machining CAD/CAM system thus speeding the fabrication process. Surface grinding is available as required by the application. We also use outside facilities to supplement our own capabilities, and call upon the extensive base of certified resources that exist locally.
STI maintains an inspection facility in which parts manufactured in and out of house are verified against specifications. This quality assurance laboratory is well equipped with an optical comparator and other metrology tooling suitable for the type of precision scientific equipment produced by STI.
We have state-of-the-art magnetic measurement instruments that are able to precisely measure the magnetic field characteristics of the devices we build, including wiggler/undulators that are meters in length. The magnetic measurement room is temperature-controlled to ensure the accuracy of our magnetic measurements.
STI owns an extensive inventory of laboratory equipment, including lasers, optical hardware, optics, electronic diagnostic equipment, optical diagnostic equipment, and laboratory hardware.
