TREC features a fully equipped in house machine shop. The versatility this has given us is critical for the design and manufacture of TREC’s custom robots. Our equipment includes a 3-axis Hurco Vertical Machining Center, 3-axis Tormach 1100 personal CNC machine and Baleigh digital lathe. We also have a personal laser cutter, band saw, and drill press, as well as a fully furnished electronics maintenance area. Our mechanical focused students gain knowledge not only on design, but also manufacture and production of cutting edge robots. We believe that this unique focus on the entire robotics process gives us the ability to not just make some of the most advanced robots in the world, but also makes us better at debugging and improving our existing platforms.
