University of Berne, Cheops Project
Martin-Diego Busch, Mechanical Engineer, University of Berne,
"As part of the project Cheops the company GIS AG supplied for the University of Bern a mobile slewing crane with which the space telescope CHEOPS can be introduced into a vacuum chamber to perform space simulation. When handling with the structural model, the completely corrosion-resistant slewing crane has proven itself to be successful in our clean room environment for the first time. We are very pleased with the slewing crane provided by GIS and appreciate the flexibility and expertise of this company to design and manufacture a very high-quality special design for the CHEOPS project."
