The construction of the mechanical components of the scientific instruments is designed and planned in close collaboration among scientists, project managers and engineers in the mechanical design workshop. This collaboration already begins at the conceptual development. Moreover, the members of staff of the mechanical design department compile technical documentations as the basis for production, attend to the quality management and supervises internal as well as external production.
Powerful 3D construction software is used for the construction tasks. In addition, the sequence of motion of the mechanical building parts and modules can be simulations and their robustness and stiffness can be analyzed.
Members of the mechanical design department take part in integration- and test tasks in our institute and in test facilities of our partners.
