Precision for the space

Extensive tests on the transmitting and receiving antennas of geostationary telecommunications satellites are carried out on earth in special measuring chambers, so-called "compact ranges". The environmental conditions must be as stable as possible.

At the heart of the facility are two huge, specially shaped metal mirrors. These create a flat wave front over a short distance, simulating the distance between the receivers on Earth and the satellite in space.

And this is where WALDRICH COBURG portal machines are involved.

Because at 12 x 3 m, the mirror components are as large as a mobile home. This means that they are very large - and they also have to be machined with great precision. And this is done by WALDRICH COBURG.
