Extreme conditions experiments in Lille

Large volume preparation room

This room is equipped to prepare experiments in large volume presses, such as our piston-cylinder and multi-anvil press, as well as work on millimeter or centimeter size samples.

In particular, we have:

  • a precision wire saw,
  • a precision sectioning saw,
  • a precision lathe,
  • a computer numerical control (CNC) mill,
  • a binocular,
  • numerous oven and furnaces.

The room also has a moving crane that can handle weights up to 1 ton. We use it to move devices such as the multi-anvil press.
