Metal Workshop

Metal Workshop

Students who wish to complete their studies this summer semester can use the workshops, provided that all hygiene regulations are observed and appointments have been made.
In any case, please contact the workshop manager first by email. Describe briefly your project and the time required!

Pay attention to the hygiene concept of the HBK Braunschweig as well as to the current information on coronavirus.


The workshop
Here, students can work with metals including steel, stainless steel, aluminium and brass. Depending on the individual project, it may also be possible to combine the metal(s) with plastic or wood in small quantities. The workshop offers special facilities for the following activities:

  • Manual metalwork (welding, turning, cutting, bending, drilling, sawing etc.)
  • CNC milling machine (for light metals and plastics)
  • Supervision and assistance for student projects from all degree programmes
  • Supervision of the 3D printer, printing individual items and PLA prototypes
  • Supervision of the laser cutter, cutting and engraving various materials e.g. paper, cardboard, wood, plastic. (Please note the laser cutter cannot be used for cutting metal in the workshop.)
  • Supervision of the modelling area and the construction of model components

Materials can be provided by the metal workshop for a small charge. Students can also use their own materials in the workshop. Please ensure that adequate notice is given if you wish to work on your own project at the workshop.

The workshop offers a variety of courses. Students from all institutes can work here independently or under supervision. You do not need to attend the induction course in order to use the workshop. Two to five students may use the workshop at any given time by prior arrangement with the workshop supervisor.

Work clothing and sturdy footwear MUST be worn when using the workshop, preferably PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) and safety footwear.
