The mechanical workshop at the School of Chemical and Physical Sciences

The School of Chemical and Physical Sciences has a dedicated mechanical workshop on site to design, manufacture, and repair the wide range of equipment used by staff and students.

The workshop is fitted with high-precision equipment, including a CNC (computer numerical control) suite with a lathe and a three-axis mill. It also has a full range of mechanical lathes, milling machines, and workshop tools.

Our workshop staff are experts in handling the complex and demanding tasks required in a research environment. They have the advanced expertise to take on challenging tasks.

Workshop staff work closely with academic staff and students to design and build the specialised equipment needed to support many of the research programmes in the School. Some teaching lab equipment is also developed and maintained by the workshop team.
