IJSPEERT Innovative Technologies

transforms CERN’s cutting edge techniques into efficient industrial applications.  in particular the “Diaphragm Technique”, unique for the mechanical centring and fixation of object(s) of about any profile.

This novel technique centres and clamps the objects thanks to a stack of plates that have been cut to fit the profile of those object(s). The result is a strong clamping and precise centring of objects of even “impossible” contours.

The Diaphragm technique was originally developed for the fabrication of the superconducting Corrector Magnets of CERN’s Large Hadron Collider (LHC) and has proven its excellent qualities in those about 6000 superconducting magnets.

As a Spin-off from CERN, we have been mandated to develop industrial applications and to license this amazingly efficient and versatile CERN technique to interested industrial users.

We like to be challenged by you for your clamping and centring needs !

Albert IJspeert has a degree in mechanical engineering

He worked for many years at CERN, the European Laboratory for Particle Physics located in Geneva, Switzerland, specializing in subjects like electro-mechanics and electro-magnetism, including vacuum and nuclear-radiation environments.

At CERN he developed the superconducting Corrector magnets for the Large Hadron Collider (LHC). In that process he invented the “Diaphragm Technique” used to strongly centre and clamp the superconducting coils in these magnets.  CERN patented the technique and IJspeert became a Spin-off from CERN in order to develop this technique for further industrial applications in fields as different as Turbines, Electric motors, Work holding and Profile fixation.



He was one of the three winners of the Swisspor Innovation Contest 2006 thanks to novel ideas using vacuum for the insulation of houses.
Two IJSPEERT technologies won a gold and a silver medal respectively at the 2007 International Exhibition of Inventions at Geneva.
