Grob plays crucial role in development of the world's largest telescope

The world's largest telescope - meter-sized aluminium parts with micrometre precision - is being manufactured with help of a Grob G750 machine tool.

In 2028, the world's largest optical telescope is scheduled to go into operation in Chile: the Extremely Large Telescope (ELT) with a mirror diameter of 39 metres.

It will study planets and image distant galaxies in greater detail than ever before.

In this video, you can see what the Grob G750 has to do with this and how the machine tool company was able to support its customer in the machining of the components.

Grob Machine Tools UK is based in Stratford-upon-Avon, Warwickshire.
