The mechanical workshop is a joint facility located at Science servicing the Department of Biology, Department of Chemistry and The Niels Bohr Institute. The electronics workshop is a NBI facility but we will be happy to assist other institutes with minor tasks by appointment. The workshops are managed by NBI.
The workshops constitute a framework for the technical environments and functions servicing all research groups and teaching at the participating institutes. We help with development, fabrication, service and running of all kinds of research instruments and teaching equipment.
We interact closely with external suppliers and Science Campus Service when needed.
We have a motto: “We build what you can’t buy”
Where do I go with my task?
If you already have contact to one of our colleagues in the workshops just talk to him/her directly.
If you are planning to enter into a larger project or you do not know whom to talk to, please contact the Head of Technical Support Claus B. Sørensen. We will then find the relevant staff member to help you.
Our technical competences span a wide range of knowledge such as:
- Vacuum technique
- Low temperature techniques
- Environment instrument requirement surveys (Analysis of vibration, magnetics field and acoustics)
The electronics workshop is staffed with 5 engineers/technicians and 1 apprentice that service the NBI research groups with new designs and repair of existing equipment.
The workshop has a wide expertise with e.g. microcontrollers, analog and digital electronics, data acquisition, control systems and firmware programming.
The mechanical workshop is staffed with 9 engineers/technicians and 2 apprentices. The workshop service research groups at the Dep of Biology, Dep of Chemistry and NBI with new designs and repair of existing equipment.
We have a well-equipped machine shop with conventional machines and well as CNC controlled lathes and milling machines. We specialize in building custom made prototypes and small series of mechanical parts.
The workshop has a wide expertise with mechanical design and manufacture of components and equipment using 3D CAD and CAM.
You are more than welcome to come by the workshops to meet with us in person over a cup of coffee.
We are located at:
Building 24 and 25
2100 København Ø.
Monday to Thursday: 8:30 - 16:30
Friday: 8.30 – 14:00
