Load cells deliver high accuracy in Gemini Telescopes even after 20 years!

20 years ago, we were approached by The Royal Greenwich Observatory in Cambridge to design and build nearly 700 bespoke load cells for two 8.1m diameter telescopes known as The Gemini Project.

Now 20 years on, these custom-made load cells are still consistently and accurately performing an integral part of the telescope’s control system.

To continue to deliver accurate and detailed astronomical images, we have been asked to re-design and manufacture custom load cells to the same specifications incorporating up-to-date electronics with the latest state-of-the-art amplifiers.

See how we did it.
