CNC Manufacturing Workshop

The Engineering Innovation Centre CNC advanced manufacturing workshop allows students to gain real understanding and appreciation of the design and manufacturing process.

Students will also gain a variety of practical manufacturing skills.

The workshop includes high quality machines with features such as 5 axis machining and Windows based 3D colour operating systems including ‘conversational’ software options.

The introduction of new CNC equipment such as the Hurco VMX with advanced verification graphics opens up opportunities for rapid manufacture of components from a range of materials for use with student project work from a range of disciplines and for use in the curriculum for engineering students. In addition, this gives the facility modern, industry-standard technology with which to support local industry for engineering innovation projects.
