The mission of the mechanics and prototyping cell is to design and produce any mechanical assembly necessary to conduct studies in neuroimaging and neuroscience in animals or humans or any useful part for communication purposes (3D printing of brains, ...).
The cell offers a service of design and manufacturing of any mechanical set from a specification established by its customers. It is equipped with the full range of Computer-Aided Design (CAD) tools to draw up machining plans and program numerically controlled machining equipment.
For the manufacturing of the prototypes, the cell is equipped with portable tools, machining centers with manual control (lathe, milling machine, folding machine, band saw, column drills) or with numerical control (lathe, milling machine), as well as a set of FormLab printers allowing the realization of any part in polymer resin by 3D printing.
CEA is a French government-funded technological research organisation in four main areas: low-carbon energies, defense and security, information technologies and health technologies. A prominent player in the European Research Area, it is involved in setting up collaborative projects with many partners around the world.
