Laboratory Services

Top-of-the-line equipment at your service

Our research laboratory provides you the experts as well as the cutting-edge technology:

Trumpf laser workstations with Motoma and ABB robotic equipment.

5-axle high-speed machining center TajMac/ZPS manufactured MCFV 1060 Contour, equipped with a separate electric high-speed axle that can reach 50 000 rpm. The measurement laboratory’s 3-coordinate measuring instrument is suitable for e.g. measuring prototypes.

Prototypes can be manufactured at the Nivala vocational school’s thin film department. Our tool manufacturing service also includes maintenance and development.
