Formerly located in the Van de Velde building, the metal workshop moved into the building behind the Winkelbau at Geschwister-Scholl-Straße 13 in 2007. The workshop extends over 420 square metres and is fitted with a floor-controlled crane along its entire length. The machine pool, in which the student workstations are integrated, includes various bending machines for pipes, moulds and sheets. For further finishing, students can use a variety of metal saws and shearing machines. There are also punching machines and drills available. In the mechanical departments, there are two all-purpose lathes and two routers, with which students can manufacture rotationally symmetric and mechanical components. The welding room is fitted with all the equipment required for welding structural steel, stainless steel, aluminium, copper and other alloys. A sanding room is available for surface machining. The metal workshop is fitted with eight student workstations at work benches and additional niches for individual design and construction. Two staff members are always on hand to provide students with assistance.
