Mechanical workshop / Metrology

View of the mechanical workshop and of the SVOM coded mask being controlled with the coordinate measuring machine

The mechanical workshop offers the flexibility and reactivity required for the development of innovating and challenging instruments. The workshop is equipped with:

  • two 3 axis numerically controlled machining
  • a numerical control lathe compliant with TopSolid (CAM software)
  • a conventional lathe
  • two milling machine
  • two 3D printers

APC is also equipped with high precision metrology devices to offer the possibility to control components specified with a few microns of tolerance.

  • two coordinate measuring machines : one in cleaned room and the other one is numerically controlled
  • an articulated arm shared with two other laboratories.
