Unique know-how derived from the precise construction and operation of some of the world's largest and most complex machines.
- Decades of experience in the design and installation of LHC components – requiring leading and innovative competence in large-scale, geodetic metrology.
- Development of devices for micrometric alignment and adjustment
- Continuous in-situ measurement and monitoring of installations, including in harsh environment
Facts & Figures:
- 27 km: circumference of the LHC
- 30 t: weight of components requiring alignment with micrometric resolution
- 80 m: accumulated length variation of the LHC due to differences in temperature during the course of one year
- 0.15 mm: vertical and transversal relative displacement tolerance of the LHC
