project DKIST M1 Mirror Coating and Cleaning Equipment

AMOS completed end 2016 the system needed to support and move the 4m primary mirror of the DKIST telescope to be installed in Hawaii.

This machine needed to have a high reliability and precision, as the telescope mirror is a thin mirror: it has a thickness of only 10 cm for a diameter of 4m.

The machine ensures that the mirror is not distorted during operations and allows human operators to inspect and clean the mirror surface without endangering it.
