Mechanical Workshop

Main content

Since all the physical models are prototypes, this craft is particularly important for the precise construction of model parts as well as the setup of measurement equipment.

The mechanical workshop typically fabricates components of hydraulic structures from PVC, acrylic glass and brass. Since these parts are usually designed to optimize flow conditions, the multiple curved contours are shaped with a CNC milling machine.

Our locksmith manufactures chrome and sturcural steel parts for pipes, steel supports, scaffoldings etc., whereas the carpentry can be used to process wood for platforms, railings and safety barriers.
