Travelling to the origins of the universe with copper

Under the motto “Collaborations for Your Excellence“ the Wieland Group as one of 37 companies will be presenting its innovative product and service portfolio at CERN in Meyrin, Switzerland, on 10 and 11 October 2017. The industrial fair is organised by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research together with CERN to strengthen existing collaborations and to make new partnerships possible.

The European Organisation for Nuclear Research tries to unravel the mysteries of the universe, for example with the CERN particle accelerator. By reconstructing the situation right after the Big Bang, scientists are researching the building blocks of matter and natural forces. For the superconductors at the core of this powerful machine, the Wieland Group uses copper-based high-tech fibres. In addition, components such as rods, sections and tubes, mainly of pure copper, are used in the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), the world’s largest experimental facility built in a 27 km long tunnel between France and Switzerland at CERN.

As a global technology company, Wieland supports basic research in physics with its know-how in key technologies such as material science as well as forming and joining technology.
