Technical Support Unit

To ensure that an instrument is functioning properly, in many cases it will be necessary to generate a 3D model to assess whether the object meets the requirements. The engineer is able to do this using the CAD package NX5.

Mechanical instruments

The Mechanics Department has a wide range of machinery and equipment, conventional as well as computer controlled (CNC). It also has facilities for Electric Discharge Machining (EDM): two machines for wire spark erosion and one machine for zinc erosion.


Document management

The Mechanics Department documents and keeps an archive of all its products. This means that the knowledge remains accessible and follow-up projects, modifications and adjustments can be dealt with effectively.


CE guidelines/standards

Directives such as the Machinery Directive and the Pressure Equipment Directive (PED) are available for consultation at the Mechanics Department.

An overview of general and specific standards is available on request.
