Leveraging a World-Class Facility

Methods' Precision Center in Acton, MA

Machines at the Precision Center sit on isolation pads inside a climate-controlled room to eliminate variables for more accurate testing and experiments.

We specifically designed and engineered the Precision Center to provide advanced capabilities that serve the unique needs of modern manufacturers in many different industries.

Extreme Climate Control

Our 8,000 sq. ft. facility includes a precisely-controlled environment (temperature, humidity, and air pressure), critical for preventing thermal instability from influencing the accuracy of the machine’s performance during testing and experiments.

Engineered for Stability

The foundation under each machine in the lab is built using isolated concrete pads to ensure stability. The isolation prevents vibrations throughout the facility from skewing or impacting the performance of the other machines operating within the Precision Center.

Secured Access for Sensitive Projects

Our Precision Center also includes security features for ITAR projects requiring non-disclosure or customer confidentiality, including a private engineering suite with restricted keycard access.
