The equipment and machines installed on the workshop floors of the new TSCs include AC/DC Electric Arc welding set, Electric Arc Mobile welding set, heavy duty hydraulic press, metal sheet power operated rolling machine, profile bending machine, box and pan powered folding machine, metal sheet hydraulic swing-beam shears, spot welding set, oxy-acetylene gas welding set, amongst others.
On the machining floor of the new TSCs, the following equipment have been installed and some being installed: centre lathe, shaping machine, universal milling machine, radial arm pillar drilling machine, and a bench drilling machine.
