Winding laboratory

The winding laboratory, used for making small prototype coils, has a large capacity winding machine with a vertical axis, a winding machine with a horizontal axis and a winding machine with a vertical axis and a horizontal axis for making more complex coil geometries. Each of these machines has a brake to control the mechanical tension on the conductor. There is a 1500 metric tonne hydraulic press with a heating system for heating under mechanical stress (polymerization, bonding, etc.). An oven is used for high temperature heat treatments up to 800°C, under vacuum or inert gas blanketing, which are necessary for Nb3Sn formation reactions. A system for resin impregnation under vacuum completes the equipment in this laboratory.
