The vertical continuous-five-axis-milling machine is the main equipment of this unique workshop. It is one of the few machines of this kind in Spain out of the aeronautical or the automotive sectors. It is the guaranty of CLPU to have independence in the laser technic design. It allows to the Centre produce specific pieces for every technical need.

The process begins with a detailed three-dimensional design of the piece. It also can prepare assemblies and simulations before the manufacturing by using SolidWorks software. After that, it traduces the design in instructions that the machine can understand (Mastercam program).

The machining workshop is also equipped with a jig saw, a vertical drilling machine, a lathe and other tools for the fabrication of tailor-made complex parts.

The workshop can developed and repair electronics devices to some level of complexity thanks to its professional tools. The process begins on the office with the design of the circuits, later a PCB is manufactured and components can be soldered to it using a "pick and place" machine. The CLPU has a small manual pick and place machine

For soldering and rework the workshop has two stations, one being hand-held type and the other having a stand for hot-air soldering with IR preheating.

The tools are completed with a small optical binocular microscope for inspection and a small fume extractor with filters for air cleanliness and healthy environment.
