Here is a list of our larger equipment and machines that are available for student/faculty use. Please note that some tools require an ASU course to be taken or a Lab Tech must operate. If we don’t have a piece of equipment in our labs, you may want to check out some of the other labs on campus such as the SIM Building or the Innovation Hub in the Technology Center.
If you need a poster printed for a sponsorship or for one of your classes, we got you covered. We have a Canon iPF810 42in. full-color plotter.
To get a Poster printed, follow our procedure below.
Our mill has a full digital read out on the x and y axis. We have a small variety of end mills, but for a larger variety please see the staff in the SIM Building.
Please note that the Mill is only available for use while a lab tech is present and the tool box for the mill can only be unlocked during business hours while the lab manager is present.
If you have never used a mill before, we ask that you take the Manual Machining course EGR 294 Topic: Fundamentals of Engineering Prototyping.
Another one of our machines is the Lathe. This Lathe is one of the few lathes on the Polytechnic campus with a digital read out on the x and y axis. We do have a limited number of inserts but for a larger variety please see the staff in the SIM Building.
Please note that the lathe is only available for use while a lab tech is present and the tool box for the lathecan only be unlocked during business hours while the lab manager is present.
If you have never used a lathe before we ask that you take the Manual Machining course MFG EGR 294 Topic: Fundamentals of Engineering Prototyping.

Printed Circuit Board (PCB) Mill
The Peralta 109 lab is known as the electronics controls lab. Here we can produce circuit boards for any student that is currently enrolled in the Engineering program. We also do accept personal projects! You PCB design will have to meet our mill’s specifications that can be found at the link below.
To verify that your PCB design meets all the specifications above, we ask that you install DFM Now and use our custom DFM rules set, which can be found here. A tutorial on how to use this Gerber viewer can be found here.
We accept gerbers from varies electronic CAD packages. To get a PCB made here at Peralta Labs, please follow our procedure below.Submission Procedure
Vertical Band Saw
Our Vertical Band saw can handle a variety of materials. We place an all purpose blade on this machine so that students can cut wood, and metal. This machine also has the ability to hook it up to the air so that it keeps debris off your work surface and allows you to see if you are following your lines are not. If for some reason the machine is not cutting smoothly, please see a lab tech.
Horizontal Band Saw
Our Horizontal Band saw is perfect for cutting stock, pipes, or anything that needs a rough cut made. Since this piece of equipment has a coolant system, we ask that after using it you mop up the coolant that might had splashed out. This type of band saw is different than a standard band saw so please ask for help from a lab tech if you have never used one before.
