Assembly & Testing



Key Benefits

bulletAll warm and cold testing is done "in house". The Instrument Technicians work together with Electronic Technicians and Systems Programmers to troubleshoot problems encountered during a testing session.
bulletModifications or repairs can be done with minimal down time to the mechanism or assembly.


bulletClean Assembly Rooms for optical installation and mechanical assembly.
bulletCold testing can be conducted in one of our liquid-cryogen-cooled test dewars. This has the advantage of a relatively short cycle time.
bulletCold testing can also be performed within the instrument itself. This has the advantage of being able to test large mechanisms at controlled temperatures.
bulletLeak detection with our Varian 979 Helium Leak Detector at our Hilo facility.
