Fusion is the great help or source of the future. To make this possible, there are many challenges on the way to a technology that must be mastered, such as vacuum technology. The entire fusion process takes place in a huge vacuum vessel that needs to be evacuated and monitored. The initial situation is poor Vacuum pumps, measuring devices and mass spectrometers require new developments. We can carry out this type of development right now in a trusting cooperation between customer and supplier of our vacuum technology. Many intermediate steps require trusting communication. At the end of the process, products are created that push the boundaries.
