At the Center for Rapid Innovation, a lightning strike of inspiration can quickly become electric! Designed for startups, established companies and hobby tinkerers in mind, Werkstätte Wattens’ Fablab provides space to let ideas expand and flourish.

Spread across 300m², the Center for Rapid Innovation (CRI) provides access to five labs equipped with the very latest in technology. Developers and engineers will hardly contain their delight in getting their hands on 3D printers, 3D scanners, CNC milling machines, CO2-laser cutters, 6-axis robots and a materials printer. A Fab-Store, two meeting rooms and an in-house workshop complete the package.

Central Lab

The Central Lab is the heart of the FabLab. This is the place to exchange ideas, create and envision improvements to existing products.

Watch out for flying chips at the CNC lab, a room that can easily get rather dusty.

Robotic Lab

Here, machines do all the heavy lifting and working by hand is not allowed.

-> Robotics Lab Equipment

Material Lab

A place where new materials are created and old ones are assigned a new functionality.

Elektronik Lab

If sparks fly here, then something is amiss. But it’s important to learn from mistakes… Everything required for smart products is available here, from a soldering iron to an oscilloscope.
