Mechanical Engineering Department

Service Ingénierie Mécanique
Internal structure

The Mechanical Engineering Department is operated by a manager and three agents (2 CNRS staff and 2 ENS de Lyon staff). Its mission is to design and build experimental devices that do not exist on the market, for the various laboratories and teaching departments of ENS de Lyon.  This can range from a simple component to a complete apparatus.

It includes a design office equipped with four SolidWorks CAD workstations, and a complete mechanical workshop equipped with conventional and numerically controlled machine tools, as well as welding equipment. In recent years, new manufacturing processes for plastics have been added, such as laser cutting, 3D printing on wire and resin.
