Made to measure: mechanical engineering on site#

We manufacture precision parts and instrumentation in our own mechanical workshop.

Mechanical engineering workshop

Precision-moulded parts and engineering#


Our institute has a mechanical engineering workshop with modern equipment which produces components for the in-house systems developed here on site. Ten employees, of whom five are industrial mechanics specializing in precision engineering and instrumentation together with four trainees prepare precision components – from simple threads to complex system structures.

Direct access to the Pro/Engineer design data enables staff to process orders from the designers quickly, flexibly and in high quality via a CAM interface. Possible errors that may occur later during production are anticipated with simulation software. This intermediate step reduces the scrap rate and prevents problems during production.
