Title

Mechanical Workshop

We provide an on-site fabrication facility for custom-made, precision mechanical items for use in scientific research.

We are able to provide this service both to the Department of Oncology and to other members of the University.

Our workshop rightly prides itself on being able to offer "The Complete Package" from assistance with design, 3D Computer Aided Design (CAD) modelling, engineering drawings right through to fabrication and assembly.

We are able to provide a very fast turnaround of complex precision components due to our extensive use of both CAD and Numerically Controlled (NC) machines.
