CNIM breaks ground on a new 2,500 sqm building at its industrial site in La Seyne-sur-Mer

The new building will supplement the existing facilities at CNIM’s industrial plant, which manufactures large, precision-engineered components for customers in the semiconductors, large scientific instruments, nuclear and aerospace industries.

CNIM, a French global industrial equipment manufacturer and supplier, has laid the foundation stone of a new 2,500 sqm building at its industrial site in La-Seyne-sur-Mer in southern France. Construction work is expected to be complete by the end of the year.

This building will feature a 1,500 sqm ISO8 clean workshop and a 1,000 sqm ISO6-rated  clean  room, enabling assembly operations, molecular  and particulate decontamination and subsequent qualification testing for large components measuring up to 6 x 3 x 2 m. Three-dimensional inspections of large components will in future be performed onsite, in a dedicated inspection area equipped with a high-precision Zeiss machine that supplements the existing facilities (four laser trackers and two medium-sized 3D inspection machines).

CNIM already has a 200 sqm ISO 6/7 clean room, used for final assembly of components for the Megajoule Laser project.

 “Over the years, CNIM has regularly upgraded its industrial facilities so that we can provide customers with fully integrated solutions for their projects, covering everything from design, industrialization, manufacturing and qualification activities to assembly in clean rooms or on site” explains Philippe Lazare, Chief Executive of the Industrial Systems Division.
