The mission of the Machine Maintenance group is to preserve the function of primarily MFD's but also of all of SLAC's metal working machinery, manufacturing process systems, and capital machining equipment throughout their useful lives, and to support manufacturing and service groups by selecting and applying the most cost-effective techniques for managing failures, breakdowns, and their consequences. Our success depends on the satisfaction of supervisors, operators, and custodians of the equipment. We take great pride in ourselves, our work, and the service we provide to the machining groups and other departments. We handle installation, maintenance, upgrade, and the eventual retirement of machining equipment throughout SLAC, and perform the work to SLAC safety and building requirements.
