National Laboratories: Target Structure

When you are selected to perform the end-to-end, precision fabrication and machining for a unique, spherical chamber which an entire research facility is being built around, you have to be at the top of your game. Ranor had the distinct pleasure of working with one of the nation's most elite scientific colleges, manufacturing an immense target structure for highly advanced laser experimentation.

The shape, scale, and design specifications posed a unique and exciting challenge in terms of end-to-end production solutions. The skilled, experienced teams at Ranor addressed the technically advanced project with innovative fabrication and machining processes. This included processing and welding parts to control distortion in the target structure and performing machining of the sphere's holes in a specific order to avoid compromising the dimensional and structural integrity. In the end, Ranor successfully executed an end-to-end, turnkey solution, meeting all of the client's critical precision and quality requirements, on time the first time.
