is a Spin-off from CERN, the European Laboratory for Particle Physics, dedicated to transform CERN’s cutting edge techniques into efficient industrial applications.
Specialised in Mechanical Centring and Holding, we apply in particular CERN’s “Diaphragm Technique”, unique for the mechanical centring and fixation of object(s) of about any profile.
This Diaphragm technique, originally developed at CERN for the fabrication of the superconducting Corrector Magnets of her Large Hadron Collider (LHC), has proven its excellent qualities in those about 6000 superconducting magnets.
Recently we developed another novel technique, this time to centre and hold turbine blades for the machining of their “fir tree” feet.
Our techniques can solve nearly any centring and clamping demand and therefore we would 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.
