JPE showed an interesting case of precision engineering in Earth’s largest telescope.

Janssen Precision Engineering (JPE) engaged the audience at a lunch lecture held at TU Delft with one of their most remarkable project contributions. Sharing insights into their role in building the largest telescope on Earth, located in the Canary Islands, JPE showed their expertise in precisely moving a multitude of bars within a challenging cryogenic and vacuum environment, to create a slit for starlight detection by stellar spectroscopy. Their novel work made significant contributions to the field of astronomy.
