Luvata Group renames parent company Luvata Oy
Luvata, a group company of Mitsubishi Materials Corporation (MMC), announces it is renaming its parent company Luvata Oy. Luvata Oy replaces the previous name MMC Copper Products Oy, used since the acquisition of the Group by Mitsubishi Materials Corporation in May 2017. Luvata Oy is a change in name only. The Group’s legal structure, corporate identity and the official names of its twelve locations remain unchanged.

Bilfinger Noell receives order for third superconducting spin echo spectrometer from USA
The awarded contract is for a superconducting spin echo spectrometer (NSE) magnet system from the University of Delaware, USA. The device is dedicated to neutron research at the NIST Center for Neutron Research (NCNR) in Gaithersburg, USA and is already the third with Bilfinger Noell’s superconducting technology. Two more are successfully operated at SNS (Spallation Neutron Source) in Oak Ridge and at the research reactor FRM 2 in Garching.

Bruker: Successful installation of World’s First 1.2 GHz NMR for Structural Biology Research
The NEO 1.2 GHz NMR system at CERM (Italian center for structural biology at the University of Florence) marks the second successful customer installation of a Bruker GHz-class NMR system with a novel HTS/LTS hybrid magnet design. It will enable new research in functional structural biology of protein complexes such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s Diseases, and it will help to soon record the first 1.2 GHz protein spectra of a from the coronavirus SARS-CoV-2.”

Bruker delivered first 1.2 GHz NMR System to CERM at the University of Florence
Bruker announces the delivery of the world´s first 1.2 GHz NMR system and has now successfully brought three 1.2 GHz magnets to field at its Swiss facility. In late 2019, two additional 1.2 GHz customer orders were received. Bruker´s unique GHz-Class NMR magnets utilize a novel hybrid design with advanced high-temperature superconductor (HTS) in the inner sections and low-temperature superconductor (LTS) in the outer sections of the magnet.

Bilfinger Noell successfully delivers superconducting magnet to CNRS LNCMI-Grenoble
The superconducting outsert coil (approx. 20 tons, made of 37 double pancake coils) was delivered to the Laboratoire National des Champs Magnétiques Intenses (LNCMI) in Grenoble. The superconducting coil, in superfluid helium at 7,1 kA and 1,8 K, provides a magnetic field of 8,5 Tesla. The hybrid magnet, in combination with resistive insert magnets developed at Grenoble, will provide a total continuous magnetic field of up to 43 Tesla.

Bilfinger Noell successfully delivers first superconducting QDM magnetic module
The First of Series, of 83 superconducting QDM magnetic modules, was delivered to GSI Darmstadt. Bilfinger Noell is responsible for the integration of the quadrupole module, the manufacturing of the cryostat vessel, and other parts. The modules are used in the SIS100 accelerator ring at the Facility for Antiproton and Ion Research (FAIR), one of the world’s largest research projects (investment volume of more than €1 billion).
