Electronical and Mechanical Workshop, Technicum
Setting up and modifying experimental equipment is the main job of the employees working in the mechanical and electronical workshops. Often, individual parts have to be designed and made to meet the specific demands of complex experimental setups. This can only be done in close cooperation with the scientists. Furthermore, they work together with the technicians and engineers responsible for the pilot scale lab (Technicum), whose responsibility lies in the setup and operation of pilot plants. Here, so-called miniplants are employed that are also successfully used in industrial research. The use of a standardized process control system facilitates the flexible and safe operation of experiments.
