Mechanical Lab

The Mechanical Lab is a space dedicated to research and teaching activities within mechanical and industrial engineering. Topics range from human-product interaction to mechanical testing, vibrations and tolerances. These are pursued by collaboration with both research groups at the unibz as well as industrial partners, especially in South Tyrol. The Mechanical Lab provides therefore a resource for those who require expert know-how of mechanical systems and structures.
