Lakshmi's update
  • Status of the remaining MQW coils
Technicoil will ship coils on 1/12/2021 (Next Tuesday) => should arrive by 1/15
  • PSS Kicker Magnet
Waiting for the Support cube drawing. The models provided in Nov 2020
Need the drawings in order to finalize the terminal block hold points for the magnet assembly
  • MQW prototype assembly issues
Looked at the assembly; took additional measurements; discussed preliminary action plan with Joe.G/Marcy and Phil.
Finalize the steps :ongoing. Should be ready soon
  • Clamp shells for assembly bake-out (preferred)
Was put on hold yesterday ( Phil /Marcy prefers baking without clamp shell)
Back-on the list
Design jobs
  • From Marcy....
This is the "old existing drawing" media:210108_Existing_AirCylinderModification.pdf
The shaft is now 8.25" or so, there is no nut that moves anymore, and the length sticking out needs to be checked.
From what Phil has described, the retracted position of the piston remains the same. The beveled piece defines the "in" position, and needs to be moved forward to define the stroke length. Then the excess of the hex rod has to be shortened to the right length, and threaded right for the turnbuckle.


Shop jobs
