The Mechanics Workshop main purpose is the manufacture, measurement and assembly of mechanical parts.
The IAC has the infrastructures and the scientific and technical equipment necessary to carry out its technological support activities, both for the own projects of astrophysical instrumentation, as well as for external collaborations in R&D
Mechanical Integration and Verification Laboratory
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.
The CAD/CAE room concentrates the special facilities for mechanical engineering design and calculation.
Dimensional Metrology Laboratory
In the Dimensional Metrology Laboratory it is verified that the manufactured parts meet the required design specifications.
Technical Drawing Workshop
In the Technical Drawing Workshop the mechanical fabrication drawings are produced
3D coordinate measuring machines.
High precision three-coordinate measuring machines with and without contact
