EN-MME Group: Mechanical & Materials Engineering

The mandate of the MME group is to provide to the CERN community specific engineering solutions combining mechanical design, production facilities and material sciences. This group owns, maintains and develops the 30 years old know-how on the mechanical construction of beam accelerators and physics detectors.

MME involves a large spectrum of highly specialized activities like : mechanical calculations, metallurgical analysis, destructive and non destructive material testing, micrometric 3D metrology, mechanical dynamic and static measurements, precision CNC machining, all welding and vacuum brazing techniques and sheet metal forming.

Prototyping and feasibility developments are the main role of the MME group. For less demanding work or for larger scale mechanical production, subcontracting in the Member States is always preferred. And to adapt to the changing volume of demands, flexible industrial contracts are placed to support the mechanical workshop and the design office.

As proven during the LHC period, MME is a unique reference capable of responding rapidly with professionalism to the complex demands from other CERN groups, and managing the process from the start to the end, in close collaboration with the project engineers.
