Infrastructures and resources

Mechanics Department

Mechanical Integration and Verification Laboratory

The Mechanical Integration and Verification Laboratoryis managed by the Mechanics Department.

This laboratory provides the basic and specific infrastructures needed for the development and integration of mechanical systems developed in the Technology Division.

The Laboratory has a floor area of 42 m2 and is designed to work with mechanical devices and equipment. It offers generic measuring and testing equipment as well as the normal services provided by a technological research and development laboratory.

The Laboratory boasts many resources including: air conditioning, compressed air, local network connection, monophasic and 3-phase power and uninterrupted power supply, telephone, access control system and security system. 

It also has an auxiliary infrastructure of mechanical tools, workbenches, shelves, storage trolleys and handling equipment.

The Laboratory has a collection of specialized integration, measurement and verification instruments like calibers, cryostats, torque meters, sub-micrometric measuring equipment and equipment for measuring and analyzing vibrations. 

A more detailed list of this instrumentation follows: 

  • Dynamometric keys from 0,02 Ncm to 200 Nm.
  • Digital dynamometer with up to 200 N traction and compression measurement
  • Equipment for measuring motor torque up to 0,35 Nm
  • Vertical displacement table with 650mm digital scale
  • Electric screwdrivers, 2.4V and 12V.
