In order to fulfill the goal of producing high rates of doubly strange hyperons the ¯PANDA
collaboration will use the antiproton ring HESR at the future facility FAIR. The low energy
hyperon production by an antiproton beam requires to insert a solid target inside the ring.
Unwanted side effects of such an insertion are the overwelming amount of annihilations, which
would make the detectors blind, and the fast depletion of the bunch, which circulates inside the
ring. The use of a very thin target and the technique of beam steering seem to be a satisfactory
solution to the above problems and will be described here.
