Mechanical Design office

We provide a complete mechanical design and analysis service that is appropriate to the purpose of each individual project.

Our team of engineers work closely with other universities and research institutes on many international physics research projects. They understand what it takes to make something that meets the exact requirements and to cost. We can discuss with you your needs from concept visualisation to detail design and commissioning, whatever the size is your project.
