Mechanical workshop

The main objective of the Mechanical Workshop is to assist ICN2 researchers with the production and development of mechanical components. If capacity allows, tasks are also carried out for customers outside.

The facility is equipped with state of the art CNC machine tools, conventional lathes and milling machines, as well as welding and fabrication equipment. We are further equipped with a CAD/CAM package to enhance the design and manufacturing capabilities.

The Workshop is characterized by flexibility, quality and cooperation, and the tasks are carried out by a highly qualified personnel. The staff is available to assist researchers in the design assessment and feasibility, the material selection and the sourcing of associated components.
