Additive manufacturing laboratory

With this way of manufacturing the main principle is to manufacture an object by adding thin layers of material repeatedly many times to achieve an object. This is seen as a superior manufacturing method because it does not generate waste material. It also enables one to make very complex items both easily and fast. 3D-scanning and object modeling can also be done in this laboratory.

Assembly laboratory

The whole laboratory is reserved for first-year students, which start a project in where they disassemble a scooter or ATV. They have to remember to document the whole process closely, because with the help of their own documentation, they have to assemble it to it’s original (and functioning) form during the spring semester.

Examples of equipment in the laboratory

Scooters
ATV’s
Comprehensive tool sets
