Mechanical design and manufacture

The Technical Center for Innovation Méca3D, a multidisciplinary engineering and prototyping platform, is responsible for technological transfers to companies, in design, manufacturing, quality control and additive manufacturing. Milling and turning machines with C-axis allow the machining of simple or complex parts in 4 axis and 5 axis continuous mode. The mechanically welded sheet-metal and assembly workshop enable the creation,  assembly and optimization of mechanical assemblies or subassemblies.


Our resources are oriented towards manufacturing dedicated to research laboratories and end-of-studies projects. We also support our industrial partners with studies and manufacturing projects.
