Text Box: Mechanical Engineering Group is participating in the different mechanical engineering activities of Variable Energy Cyclotron Centre, Kolkata. It carries out design, modeling, prototyping, fabrication, installation and commissioning for different accelerator related systems and components. 
The latest FEA software is used to design accelerator magnets, cavities and accelerator components operating at room temperature and cryogenic temperatures. CAD software is used to generate computer models and fabrication drawings. CAM software is used to generate machine codes for use in workshops under the group.
The group has a small workshop having machining facilities for fabrication of precision components with complex geometries. It has a few CNC machines, wire cut EDM machine, co-ordinate measuring machine, welding equipments, conventional lathes and milling machines.
The room temperature cyclotron and superconducting cyclotron operate round the clock.  Maintenance of the cyclotrons is carried out on top priority to ensure maximum availability. The low conductivity water unit  uses RO unit and mixed bed to supply low conductivity water and instrumentation air to both the cyclotrons.
