TMT Project Engineers at Vertical Laboratories in California test TMT Leaf Spring Components.

The leaf springs required for TMT warping harness mechanism, supporting each one of the 492 primary active segments, are being tested and validated in an Environmental Simulation Laboratory.

TMT warping harness is an integral part of the mirror support structure. Designed for high accuracy and reliability, the warping harness can deform the mirror segment to correct for small errors with nanometer accuracy in the overall mirror surface.
