Metal

The Metal workshop is a fully equipped workshop for metalworking with professional equipment and tools.

There are wide varieties in techniques available for sheet metal (cutting, bending, rolling, plasma cutting), construction (cutting and bending profiles), machining techniques (drilling, milling, turning) and welding (MIG/MAG, TIG, autogenous welding).

Hand tools such as angle grinders, nibblers, hammers, files, taps, cutting plates, soldering irons and the necessary measuring and marking tools are available. There is a smoke extraction unit for welding, soldering and grinding; there is a special cutting / downdraft table for plasma cutting; and there is a mobile extraction unit in case the fixed extraction unit is not sufficient. A range of personal protective gear is available, such as safety shoes in a variety of sizes, safety goggles, hearing protection, welding gloves, welding goggles and welding masks.

Dust masks that cover mouth and nose are available for students in the workshop.

Regulations: 
  • It is possible to follow an introductory training prior to working in the workshop. You can take an additional training course in welding. Before you start working, you need to inform the workshop supervisor on duty and tell them what you intend to do.
  • When the workshop supervisor is absent, you cannot work with the equipment, unless given express permission by the supervisor on duty.
  • When visiting the workshop, you must wear safety shoes and safety goggles. Long hair needs to be tucked into a hairnet or tied back. The body needs to be completely covered (short sleeves are allowed, except with welding). Clothing needs to be non-flammable (e.g. cotton or wool), including underwear. Long sleeves need to be tight-fitting or rolled up (except when welding). Wearing gloves is NOT allowed when drilling, milling and turning. At noise levels over 85 decibels, the use of hearing protection is mandatory.
  • Proper preparation pays off; make sure you have an action plan and a drawing/sketch of what you intend to make. Prepare a list beforehand of the quantities of materials you intend to use from the workshop.
  • The materials you plan to use need to be paid in advance using your Student ID card. Make sure you have sufficient credit.
  • Instructions by the supervisor need to be followed instantly. Use your common sense. Be aware of what you are doing. When in doubt, don’t just guess; ask the supervisor.
  • Before leaving the workshop, store the tools you used back in their proper place and leave your workplace tidy and clean.
