Stainless steel for Swiss laboratory

DMV Stainless Italia, the Italian subsidiary of DMV SAS, located in Costa Volpino (Bergamo), has received an order from CERN, the European Laboratory for Particle Physics, to supply seamless stainless steel tubes. The tubes, for a total length of 65km, will be used as part of the superconducting magnets of the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), an accelerator that will bring protons and ions into head-on collisions, allowing scientists to penetrate still further into the structure of matter and recreate the conditions prevailing in the early universe. The major part of the tubes will constitute the vacuum chamber, one of the very critical parts of the accelerator, where the particles circulate around the machine. The LHC will be installed in an existing underground tunnel of 27km circumference astride the Franco-Swiss border west of Geneva at the foot of the Jura mountains.
