At xHain we have marked different workareas called Branches with different color codes. Bigger objects will be marked with a sticker (colour logos), smaller objects with coloured paint. The reason for the markings is simple: using expensive tools for the wrong purpose damages the tools and makes them unusable for their intended purpose.
|green||Electronics||microscope, reflow oven|
|red||Maschinenraum||lasercutter, plotter, laser microscope|
|purple||3D-Lab||all 3d printers, oven|
|pink||Hobelhöhle||all equipment requires separate instructions|
If you use a tool for the wrong purpose or in the wrong area, you might damage the tool and you're violating our space rules. Examples:
If you can't find the right tool in a specific workspace, please contact the person responsible for that area. They will take care of replacing or purchasing it.
