MoriSeikiNT1000-2010 (12) (2).jpg

Mori Seiki NT1000 SZM CNC Mill-Turn Machining Center

Mostly taking on work from mature businesses. Parts range from plate work, to tight tolerance titanium subsea and aerospace components. I can usually do rush work (0-5 day lead time). 

Generally if the part fits in 12"x12"x12" I can probably make it. 

Best to email me at info@gtscientific.com if this is your first time reaching out. I check it multiple times daily. 

Where are you located? We all know Hawaii is the most expensive place to live, therefore I operate out of two oversized garages. I usually do pickups and deliveries at the customer location.

About Me (Grant Takara)
I spent most of my time in high school on the robotics team and about a month before graduating highschool in 2012 I saw a job posting at the University of Hawaii at Manoa student job database for a machine shop assistant. I wanted to learn how all the teams on the mainland made such good robots/parts. It's safe to say the shop supervisor was surprised to hear a highschool student call in for the job.
Since then, I've been machining and designing products.

I founded Gtscientific in 2017 while pursuing my Masters of Science in Mechanical Engineering. It was during my first year in grad school I felt comfortable enough with CNCs to move up from 3020 and 6040 CNC routers and bought a Tormach PCNC440. From 2018 to 2022 I worked at a local engineering firm on Department of Defense SBIR projects and machined stuff on the side. Since then I've made numerous products and parts growing the business and skill sets along the way.

Thank you for visiting my site! I hope my products may find some use or joy in your life.
