Large-Sized Thermal Vacuum Chamber

In space, satellite components and materials are exposed to extreme conditions. Extensive tests are required to verify their functional capability and suitability in terms of temperature and atmospheric pressure. A thermal vacuum chamber allows the qualification and acceptance testing of space and as well aircraft products under high vacuum and well-defined temperature scenarios. Such thermal vacuum tests can be fully automated.
