Welcome to IMF

The Instrumentation and Model Facility (IMF) turns your ideas into functional prototypes, custom instruments, integrated systems, precision parts, and accurate models. Our custom design and fabrication services enable your organization to conduct world class research, achieve rapid product development, or prototype parts and assemblies using innovative rapid manufacturing techniques. IMF engineers and technicians employ a holistic systems view of your design challenges with a consultative approach while utilizing broad technical expertise in mechanical, electrical, optical, and software programming disciplines. They work in partnership with researchers, product development engineers, inventors, and entrepreneurs to design innovative instruments suited to your application, research need, or market. Depending on your requirements, we can fabricate a single custom part or instrument, conduct a small volume production run, or prototype models, parts, or assemblies using our Polyjet 3D printing system.
