Mechanical Workshop

The mechanical workshop undertakes the construction of all mechanical systems, whether they be flight or developmental. These vary from plasma detectors to full telescopes and from radiation shields to cryogenic coolers.

Capabilities include CNC and manual, milling and turning along with EDM and sheet metal forming abilities.
The engineering performed in the mechanical workshop focuses on producing specialised, high-precision low-volume parts for laboratory and space instrumentation.
