Machining 

Our Machine Shop is supported with CNC Mills and Lathes, surface grinders, and wire EDM machines, we also have a variety of band and abrasive cut-off saws, low-stress grinders, and polishing equipment. 

All of PES' Material Testing Labs are supported by our ever-expanding Machine Shop. Starting with a variety of band and abrasive cut-off saws, and finishing with our low-stress grinding and polishing equipment, we have the ability to handle all specimen preparation in-house. Supported with CNC Mills & lathes, surface grinders, and wire EDM machines, our machinists process a variety of materials on a daily basis. 

In 2020, the PES footprint doubled in size by adding another building to the campus. This expansion afforded us the opportunity to not only expand our capacity and capabilities but also reorganize the Machine Shop to maximize efficiency and throughput. Similar to our testing laboratories, our Machine Shop is NADCAP accredited for specimen preparation. After the samples are machined, inspection is performed using a variety of precision measuring equipment including toolmakers microscope, optical comparator, or a bench center.
