The ASTRI radio telescope starts its activity!

ASTRI radio telescope

Galbiati Group has completely realized the mechanical construction of the ASTRI radio telescope (Mirror Astrophysics and Italian Replicating Technology) ASTRI SST-2M at the Catania Astronomical Observatory. ASTRI is the new prototype of a new type of telescope that will built the project called Cherenkov Telescope Array (CTA) and will be used for functional tests and scientific calibrations.

During the construction phase were used mobile precision measuring instruments and all the production capacities of the Oggiono mechanical workshops equipment the company has availed of. The raw materials, in particular steel, were used for the construction of the parabolic antenna rails, from which the bending operations and the subsequent mechanical processing to achieve the required high precision were followed. The azimuthal rotation wheels and axis of the antenna were made in the Galbiati workshops, using the most modern steels to increase the surface hardness, and to guarantee greater durability and reduced wear over time. Galbiati Group has entirely realized the rails, the carts and all the mechanical details of which the radio telescope structure is composed.

The ASTRI radio telescope, the first prototype of the 70’s line of the CTA project, will provide three-dimensional images with higher resolution. The CTA project, led by a Consortium of scientific institutions belonging to more than 20 countries and funded by the European Commission, will be the most powerful and flexible gamma ray observatory with E> 30 GeV energy, never built before. It provides for the construction of two observatories, placed one in the northern hemisphere and one in the southern hemisphere, made in turn by a group of telescopes. At the center there will be some large telescopes with a diameter of 23 meters, surrounded by dozens of medium telescopes (diameter 12 meters). The observatory in the southern hemisphere will also have many dozens of small telescopes with a diameter of 4 meters each.

Galbiati Group, leader in the construction of large sized precision machines and plants, works successfully in the astronomy sector manufacturing mechanical components for satellite dishes and radio telescopes. Discover more about the company!

Tunnel Boring Machine – Hiroshima Project

Galbiati Group has designed and built the largest segment erector, it has a maximum capacity of 9,7 tons, intended for a Tunnel Boring Machine that will be used for an important project called “Hiroshima Project” in Japan.

The TBM for which the erector has been built, with a 13,2 meter diameter cutter head, will have the task for creating a tunnel for the construction of lane 5 of the Hiroshima expressway in Japan.

Galbiati Group started with the mechanical machining of 4 sector that, assembled, make up the rotating ring of the erector with a diameter of 13.5 meters. Given the size and weight, the rotating ring of the erector made assembly operations difficult, so that is has not been possible to position the erector vertically.

The erector in question is equipped with a mechanical segment pick-up unit.

Erector technical data:

  • Translating speed = 100 mm/sec
  • Rotational speed = 1.5 rpm
  • Maximum load capacity = 9,700 kg (segment)
  • Total weight = 75,900 Kg
  • Intrados diameter = 12,200 mm

Galbiati Group builds TBM components such as planetary gearboxes, bearing supports, erectors. The company has recently realized 4 ton-segment erector for a Tunnel Boring Machine designed for an excavation project. For more information visit the website www.galbiatigroup.it.

Galbiati Group and its activity in proton therapy equipment

Galbiati Group has collaborating with international leading company in the medical field, in particularly in the filed of radiology and proton therapy.

Proton therapy is an important technological advance in cancer treatment, in this therapy are used proton beam to irradiate the patient’s diseased tissue.
The main advantage is the ability to more accurately localize the proton radiation dosage through a cyclotron, a particle accelerator, i.e. a machine whose purpose is to accelerate proton beams with high kinetic energy.

Galbiati Group has developed a high quality in the machining of cyclotrons, in fact, the precision and quality required are very high, the tolerances required are very strict (micron).

Example of a mechanical machining cycle performed on a cyclotron:

• mechanical processing of the full iron block;
• boring;
• milling;
• drilling;
• dimensional check in our three-dimensional measuring machine ZEISS MMZ-G 30 60 25, which, placed in an air-conditioned chamber, is able to perform dimensional checks for applications requiring millesimal tolerances.
