The CAD/CAE studio houses the hardware and software systems focused on the design, analysis and calculation, used by the mechanics department, which, due to their peculiar characteristics, require specific means. The available equipment consists of workstations executing AutoCAD, Creo Elements / Pro, ANSYS, MathCad and Matlab. The room has air conditioned and fitted with special furniture and lighting. The CAD room is managed by the Department of Mechanics.The equipment of this laboratory has been partially financed by ERDF funds.
The Mechanical Integration and Verification Laboratory provides the basic and specific infrastructures needed for the development and integration of the medium-sized mechanical systems developed at the Technology Division.
In the Technical Drawing Workshop the mechanical fabrication drawings are produced
The mechanical engineering team of the IAC has experience and knowledge to undertake the design, manufacture and assembly of high precision structures, mechanisms and opto-mechanical systems
The astronomical observation in the infrared range of the spectrum requires the use of cryogenic systems where high vacuum and very low temperature technologies are combined.
