Fine Mechanics and Instrumentation Group

In close cooperation with scientists Fine Mechanics and Instrumentation Bèta (FMIB) develops high grade instrumentation enabling research on the cutting edge of science. FMIB assist research and education by producing parts for research setups and by providing service. FMIB facilitates the valorisation of technical setups by designing commercial products and manufacture the first series.

Products

A part of the instrumentation developed by FMIB is made available for other parties or sold through commercial partners.

Design and Production

FMIB masters many mechanical production and design techniques. We use state of the art CAD, CAM and simulation software and have a modern well equipped workshop.

Service

We provide quick service for small and quick adaptations on research setups, repair devices and advice on the best way to handle the repairs, and take care of the distribution of liquid nitrogen and nitrogen gas.

Staff

In close cooperation with scientists our staff members develop high grade instrumentation enabling research on the cutting edge of science.

Internships

We offer the opportunity for MBO and HBO students to follow the practical part of their studies at our department. For HBO students, we also have the opportunity to realize their graduation project.
