Description

The base unit is easy to set up with no assembly tools needed. The screen-printed design includes a measuring scale to ensure repeatable exercises. The base unit can be set up horizontally, vertically and in inclined positions to suit each experiment.

The Engineering Fundamentals range is designed to enable students to gain an understanding of the fundamentals of engineering by the process of learning via hands-on experimentation. The unique multifunctional base unit (EF-BU) allows the student to carry out a variety of experiments covering Statics, Dynamics, Mechanisms and Kinematics in 4 different configurations.
