Innovative Scientific Fabricating

At ISSI we have an in-house machine shop for fabrication of ISSI hardware. We also have the machining capacity and capability to take on part requests from outside companies. We have a shop team with over 50 years of experience and 3D modeling software to take parts from concept to reality.

Our shop equipment includes:

Proto Trak Lathe

Our Hurco 4-axis CNC Mill became operational in late Fall 2010. This 4-axis mill with a 26”x16”x20” envelope allows for quick turnaround of larger part orders. With a 15 hp spindle motor that can run at 10,000 rpm, it cuts down machining time greatly.

We manufacture many of our test models in our shop.  We have done maufacturing of components for customers for which we are performing tests.  We also manufacture most of the hardware we sell, such as our LED housings and camera bodies.  Some of examples of our work includes, but is not limited to:

NACA 0012 Wing

We also manufacture and assemble components for larger scale sytems.  Some of these systems are included below.

S3F Imaging

The product in Figure 10 is a self-contained PSP/TSP system with all components necessary to operate a remote PSP/TSP test in a large tunnel test section.  All structural components were manufactured by ISSI in our machine shop.
