Institute of Microstructure Technology (IMT)

Mechanical Workshop

The institute's mechanical workshop supports scientists with the (micro)machining and manufacture of challenging mechanical components like e.g. mold inserts for hot embossing or experimental set-ups. All relevant machine tools are available. Three tools out of the machinery shall be mentioned in particular:

  • Brand Mini 500 surface grinding machine
  • Mitsubishi DWC 90 SZ for high precision wire eroding
  • LT Ultra MMC 600 2Z for fly-cutting and ultra precision milling
Alexandra Moritz (head of the workshop)
prepares the combined fly-cutting and
ultra precision milling machine.
