Multileaf Collimator for mild and effective cancer therapy

Proof of Concept Compact-MLC des DKFZ mit 40 Lamellenpaaren.

The “Deutsche Krebsforschungszentrum” DKFZ develops in cooperation with drive engineering companies, as zub machine control AG, a new generation of Multileaf Collimators, to improve the radiation therapy. More than 80 collimator leafs are positioned by MACS5 controllers and allow an extremely precise radiation therapy, whereby the cancer shape especially is taken into consideration. More information see publications.

Two moveable, flat coleostat mirrors direct the sunlight into the fixed telescope. The mirrors follow the course of the sun in such a way that the laboratory receives a clear picture. Two MK1 move the mirrors in this vacuum tower telescope.

Ultra-precise deflection of the electron beam in the electron accelerator

Our controls are being used in the control systems in the electron accelerator BESSY, Berliner Elektronenspeicherring-Gesellschaft für Synchrotronstrahlung mbH. An 8-axis MOCON controls the motors which position the magnet for the deflection of the electron beam. The mechanical control is designed for a maximum load of 10 tons and a total fault tolerance of 20 µm.

Applications in Research

  • Wherever unique models or small quantities are required, a custom-made product at a reasonable price is imperative to reduce the development expenses.

    Our developers team supports you in the development of customer-specific solutions, matched precisely to the application. The usage of industry-tested hardware and software modules allows a very fast prototyping. 

    Every phase of your development project is supported by experienced software and hardware developers: Short decision-making processes, speed, and flexibility.

    Your direct line: contacts.
    We are looking forward to your call.
