TMC Awarded Second Major Project by LLNL
Technical Manufacturing Corp. (TMC), of Peabody, Mass., announced it has received a second major design and build order from Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory for its National Ignition Facility (NIF) program.
TMC delivered more than 500 optical tops for an earlier phase of the NIF project. The stadium-sized NIF is an inertial confinement fusion research facility that houses the world's largest laser.
TMC makes isolation and control products for manufacturing processes and research applications, including semiconductor manufacturing, microbiology, optics and metrology.
TMC will design and build a 15-foot-long, T-shaped, coupled optical table system with an integrated stainless steel housing to control acoustic noise, drafts, dust and electromagnetic interference. This optical table structure supports NIF's preamplifier module optics.
