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
- Optical measurement technology
- Reverse engineering (3D scan to 3D CAD, equipped with laser scanner and 3D camera)
- Additive manufacturing (3D printing)
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 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.
