The Mechanical WorkShop (MWS) facility supports the research carried out at IIT by providing support in the design, development, and construction of mechanical systems.
The MWS facility operates on four main thematic areas:
- Mechanical design
- CNC machining
- Additive manufacturing
- Mechanical assembly and testing
The facility is equipped with four state-of-the-art CNC machining stations, a waterjet cutting machine, additive manufacturing systems (SLS, FFF, Polyjet and SLA technologies), and the tools required for mechanical testing and assembly operations.
Moreover, the MWS facility carries out scouting activities on the themes of mechanical design and fabrication aimed at keeping the manufacturing capabilities of IIT at the cutting edge.
