the Presidents of Tratos (Albano Bragagni), Criotec (Guido Roveta) and ICAS (Antonio della Corte)

The Headquarters of ICAS are located inside the ENEA Frascati Research Center.
Here the main administrative and organizational processes, as well as laboratory tests are carried out.

In the TRATOS Cavi S.p.A. factory site of Pieve Santo Stefano (AR - Italy), ICAS performs all cabling activities.
Two ad-hoc designed production lines have been set up so far.
One is dedicated to the manufacturing of Low Temperature superconducting cables (based on Nb3Sn and NbTi strands):
it is currently involved in the ITER and JT-60SA productions.
The second one is dedicated to the production of High Temperature superconducting cables, based mainly on YBCO tapes twisted into Aluminum slotted core: these cables are currently being used for the development of power distribution/transmission lines.


In the CRIOTEC Impianti S.p.A. factory site of Chivasso (TO - Italy), ICAS performs all conductor jacketing and magnet winding activities.
We have available: 4 x 1000m long and 6 x 300m long straight jacketing lines, equipped with welding stations for round or square tubes; round-to-round and round-to-rectangular compaction machines; two complete sets of NDE devices for weld checks (X-rays, He leak tightness, dye penetrant, inner visual inspection, go-no-go gauges,...).
One small-to-medium size coil winding line, complete of de-spooler, sand blaster, washing machine, wrapping machine and active winder, ovens for heat treatment and chambers for VP impregnation are available as well for the complete magnet production.
CRIOTEC also contributes, in the framework of the SEA ALP Consortium, to the supply of the complete winding lines for the JT-60SA Toroidal Field Magnets, the ITER Central Solenoid Magnets and the ITER Poloidal Field (PF 2 to 5) Magnets.
