Cinel Strumenti Scientifici was founded in Padua in the 70’s with a technical partnership of INFN LNL
Legnaro Laboratory on particle accelerator projects and since then has been involved in some of the most
challenging projects all over Europe.
Nowadays, CINEL has reached a long experience on mechanical design and manufacture of apparatuses
in several scientific and research fields such as Synchrotron Light Sources (monochromators, fully integra-
ted front ends and beam lines, experimental chambers), as well as accelerator components (vacuum
chambers, accelerating cavities, radiofrequency quadrupole cavities). Cinel has acquired skilled experien-
ce in the field of cryogenics, superconductivity, astrophysics and bio-mechanics collaborating with
well-known institutions as a qualified partner in the mechanical, thermal and control system design and it
can now propose turnkey solutions with high level standardization.
A new activity branch has been started in 2005 profiting from the expertise gained in years of R&D
programs finalized to high precision mechanics in several research fields; a complete range of analytical
gas supply generators has been devolved (nitrogen, hydrogen and zero air) widening the business area to
the laboratory analytical instrumentation. Since the beginning the new division has been devoted to the
design and production of analytical gas generators which have been rapidly renowned in Italy first than in
Europe and outside Europe.
Thanks to the positive impact and to the very promising results on the market, the analytical gas genera-
tors branch activity in the end of 2014 was separated from the main company “Strumenti Scientifici Cinel”
and the new company “CINEL SRL Gas Generators Technology” has been founded.
