Engineering Innovations Lab

Purpose of lab

  • Support of teaching in the Product Engineering (PEB) bachelor's programme
  • Practical project work in all study programmes
  • Support of teaching in the Product Innovation (WPI) master's programme
  • Practical thesis work in all study programmes

Mainly independent execution in small groups of experiments/assignments from various areas of engineering, such as:

  • Control and automation technology, measurement technology
  • Combined controls with microcontroller (Arduino, Rasperry Pi) and SPS (control programmable from memory)
  • Electrical engineering/electronics
  • Design/Mechanics
  • Optical measurement technology
  • Reverse engineering (3D scan to 3D CAD, equipped with laser scanner and 3D camera)
  • Additive manufacturing (3D printing)
  • Robotics

Lab equipment

The Engineering Innovation Lab has 12 workstations with an integrated area for manual tasks.

The workstations are equipped with:

  • PCs (MS-Office, WinFact, LabView, Simens-Logo, PSpice, Arduino, PTC-Creo, SolidWorks)
  • Digital multimeters
  • Twin power supply
  • Digital oscilloscopes
  • Basic hand tools

The following facilities are connected to the Engineering Innovation Lab:

  • The "Winding room" in H 3.03 with a coiling machine to wind self-configured coils.
  • The CAD Lab in H 3.05 with 8 workstations. Access to this area is time-controlled and freely accessible from 7.30am to 4.00pm.
  • Optical measurement technology in H 3.07 for optical measurement processes, measurement systems and measurement techniques.
  • 3D printing/soldering in H 3.08 with 2 3D printers (Dimension BST 768/FDM and Objet30pro/Polyjet). For soldering work a workstation with solder smoke ventilation is available.
  • A mechanical shop in H 3.09 with lathing, grinding and drilling machines for workshop and assembly work.
