Center running under the Energy department of the US government and Headquarters of the current 3km-diameter accelerator ring, one of the largest in the world.

Chameleon Project

On the 13th October, members of the Chameleon Project visited FAGOR AUTOMATION´s facilities in Eskoriatza (Gipuzkoa, Spain), to held the 4th Technical meeting. Nerea Arenaza from Fagor Aotek R&D center of Fagor Automation, was the meeting host.

Variable profiling, a process under control

Two of the main factors when developing a new vehicle are higher efficiency and greater passenger safety. They both depend to a great extent on the body of the car or truck. Obtaining an efficient vehicle requires controlling its weight in order to reduce fuel consumption. And safety requires a very strong structure against collision, vibration or fatigue which could be achieved by increasing its weight.

Integral solutions for complex machines: Large and with high-end features

In its more than 30 years of existence, Fagor Automation has given solutions to all kinds of machines, from the simplest looking for flexible operation and production to the most complex with very high technical and productive demands.

During this year exhibitions, Fagor Automation is going to present their latest advances in control and measurement systems showing a qualitative leap in the technology used to provide integral solutions to high-end machines. There are three main products to point out:

The “Advanced Photon Source” (APS) relies on Fagor Automation

The “Advanced Photon Source” uses Fagor Automation´s encoders in one of the most technologically complex and demanding machines in the world.

The “APS”, at Argonne National Laboratory , located in Chicago (Illinois), is a pioneer laboratory funded by the U.S. Department of Energy, is an X-ray accelerator ring, which keeps the X-ray beam in place by two magnets, has relied on the work of Fagor Automation to ensure that the beam remains centered between the ring and the electrodes.
