Press release date: January 16, 2013

Winchester NH - Winchester Precision Technologies (WPT), a metal fabricator and machining company based in Winchester, NH has recently announced continuing initiatives to build on the company's large machining capabilities.

According to Jason Peron, Vice President of WPT, much of the company's recent innovation in terms of large machining came about with WPT's involvement in the DEAP/CLEAN collaboration, a research initiative into dark matter by a number of institutions from the United States, United Kingdom, and Canada.

For its part in the collaboration, WPT used its experience with large machining and ASME certified pressure vessel fabrication to carefully fabricate and machine the inner and outer vessels for the MiniClean experiment. Eventually, these came together to form the completed vessel, a sphere that would be fitted with sensors and used to search for possible forms of dark matter.

While WPT's involvement with dark matter research has been ongoing, it underscores the company's continuing innovation when it comes to large machining. As Perron explains, "Every stage of machining and fabrication for the MiniClean experiment tested our ability to deliver the highest level of precision and quality. Now that the project has come to a close, we're really proud of what we were capable of."
