Metal Workshop

In our Metal Workshop, students practice working with metals, wood, wood-based materials, polymers, polyurethanes, composite materials, and their own materials made during a design process. Students have access to a wide range of professional machines, power tools, and hundreds of hand tools for ironworking. Despite its industrial character, the workshop is a friendly space conducive to cooperation and creativity. Highly qualified faculty ensure the safety of students and oversee the use of machinery and tools.

What equipment is available?

Students have access to welding stations, a MIG/MAG welding machine, locksmith vises, a metal band saw, lathe, grinder, guillotine, pipe bender, and a sheet metal bending machine. Additionally, there are other professional tools, such as metal shears, files, metal cutting saws, chisels, screw taps, hammers, center punches, and many others.

Learning Opportunities

What can you learn here?

Students learn to work with materials, especially various types of metals, getting to know their physical, chemical, and mechanical properties. They practice various processing methods such as cutting, bending, filing, welding, grinding, tracing, and polishing. They learn to shape metal elements, which they then use in the prototyping process for objects, 3D modeling, and creating molds and structures.
We assist them in finding optimal manufacturing technologies, resulting in fully functional prototypes in our Metal Workshop. Additionally, we help them overcome natural concerns about using tools. Nothing makes us happier than seeing them gain new skills and become confident in creating new and unique objects.
