First HL-LHC jacks tested and validated at CERN

All jacks of batch #1, produced by UNIOR components d.o.o, have been validated and accepted after the Site Acceptance Tests carried out at CERN. The green light to proceed with the manufacturing of pre-series batch #2 has already been given to UNIOR Components.

Machining of batch #2 parts is expected to be completed by beginning of March, followed by the full assembly and the Factory Acceptance Tests. These new jacks are expected to be delivered to CERN in early May.
