  The LAL contribution to the XFEL project will be the delivery of 800 power couplers to equip 100 Cry-modules. The LAL’s tasks consist on the industrial monitoring and coupler quality control at two different production sites, in addition to the RF conditioning at LAL of the 800 produced couplers. The RF conditioning and all the coupler preparation process will be held in a 70m2 ISO5 clean room. An RF power station delivering 5MW, allow 8 couplers conditioning in the same time. Being in production control side and also RF conditioning one, the aim of LAL is to reach the rate of 8 couplers delivery per week, after a rump up phase. The starting of Coupler mass production is scheduled for beginning 2013.
