Central Precision Mechanics at Max-Planck-Institut für Kernphysik

In the central precision mechanics shop, individual components for the scientific experimental set-ups are manufactured on modern CNC and conventional machine tools according to technical drawings and 3D models.

The challenge of the currently 16 employees (14 permanent staff and 2 apprentices in their final year of training) is to produce complex and high-precision components in a variety of materials such as chrome-nickel steels, high-purity copper, titanium, Peek or machinable glass ceramics using state-of-the-art machines such as EDM, CNC 5-axis milling, CNC turning and conventional machines.
