Our workshop is committed to craftsmanship, personalised solutions, and comprehensive services for your research needs. I am here to bring your visions to life, whether through meticulous handcrafting or advanced 3D printing.

If you need assistance with manufacturing your unique research equipment or designing it, consider the workshop at the Department of Biology. Our workshop is equipped with manually operated machines for manufacturing and 3D printing in plastic using your AutoCAD designs. I work with different kinds of materials such as plexiglass, aluminium, stainless steel, or wood, as per your preferences.

My goal is to provide customised research equipment solutions that match your specifications. What sets us apart:

  • Manual mechanical workshop: I excel in making equipment with precision in materials of various kinds of plastics or metals.
  • Custom AutoCAD Design: I can help you design the necessary parts and equipment, ensuring a tailored solution.
  • 3D printing: I offer 3D printing services with various plastic materials for precise component fabrication.
  • Repairs and maintenance: besides manufacturing, I provide repair and service for laboratory equipment, ensuring their longevity.
