CASI is delighted to offer our ASTRO’18 delegates the opportunity to get an insider perspective on ABB Canada’s Measurement and Analytics business unit’s unique high-tech facility located in the Espace d’innovation Michelet, a next-generation technological park in Québec City.

This 85,000-square-foot new facility boasts some impressive features such as:

  • Cleanroom space (2,800 sq. ft.) composed of 8 individual rooms and external service hall to double simultaneous integration capacity
  • Laboratory space (40% larger) for R&D and contract engineering with dedicated optical (2x) and ESD critical electronic (2x) rooms
  • A large TVAC (1.5 meter inside diameter) adapted for large payloads such as the PCW Meteorological Imager
  • Metrology room with anti-vibration floating slab and micro-vibration tests setup.
  • 28 feet height high bay production floor for integration and test of large equipment (ex. astronomy instruments)

Aligning with ABB’s commitment to sustainable development, the building is LEED-certified including terminals for recharging electric cars, and modern office space providing ample outside view for all employee and multiple brainstorm and collaboration “on the go” rooms.
