Instrument & Prototype Machine Shop
Latest showcase example:
These video links from Dr. Alberto Behar (Extreme Environment Robotics and Instrumentation Laboratory Arizona State University) demonstrate the diversity of components built by the Fulton Instrument & Prototype Machine Shop. The deep water submersibles are constructed from solid bars of aircraft aluminum. These include a Pressure Hull, Bulk Head, Tail Cone and Nose Cone. Additional internal structural support components are also made from similar aluminum and Delrin plastics. These units are currently being tested by Dr. Behar in Antarctica.
A premier machine shop with more than 150 years of cumulative experience in fabricating prototypes, instrumentation and other components and assemblies using machineable, bendable, or weldable materials. All of the components are built to the design specifications set forth by researchers’ designs.
Our mission is produce quality prototypes and instrumentation in support of ASU scientists and researchers.
