- Y chamber pedestals => they remain, Phil cuts off all but 1/4" downstream side of 1st pedestal
- Wien + A1/A2 pedestals => due when?, weld certification, install/align/grout
- Rebuilding viewers
- Cylinders and rods are the same
- Compressed spring length is root cause of discrepancy
- Wien filter
- Is there enough space to remove magnet steel when on fixture
- PSS kicker status
- Prebuncher cavity
- mini-CF leaks (some concern braze leaks), cut off needs to be re-welded
- Haipeng/Mark may recommend longer tube length first
- Cube assembly/testing (is there a drawing package)
- We have (2) cubes with vertical tubes welded for apertures
- We have (1) spare cube w/o vertical tube (can be used for testing)
- Each radial face has unique part w/ tapped holes for MHD coils...do we have (3) each
- Top = spacer goes over vertical tube
- Bottom = vacuum blank with tube and flange for support (yes); does this get welded?
- Right = fits over 2-3/4" flange for capictorr-100
- Left = fits over tube w/ 2-3/4" flange for ion pump
- QW assembly/testing (is there a drawing package)

- Danny recommends:
- fit up be done on all of the assemblies prior to welding on the conflats.
- fitted assemblies should then be match marked
- Magnetic measurements can happen on 1 article, prior to welding
- Make up (6) crosses (4 for CEBAF, 2 for UITF)
Meeting October 30
- 10/30 - From Danny
- about to order PSS kicker spool piece.
- tunnel installation info given to S&A.
- buncher-conflat flanges welded on. next, leak check and then final RF measurements.
- A1/A2 cubes, flanges welded on? phil.
- A1/A2 support spool, welded? phil
- working on assembly drawings. MQW cross, aperture girder.
- reducer bellows spool pieces for A1/A2 cubes shipped monday.
- 10/29 - From Joe & Mike - magnet status
- FX & FY solenoids (Everson Tesla): 3 MFX completed and ready. 7 solenoids queued for measurement at a later date.
- DR dipole (Milhous): The 2nd half of the first article has been shipped and waiting on its arrival.
- HD (Technicoil): Coils are completed and delivered to our S&R dept. They will bring them to our shop either on Friday or Monday. Lakshmi - Wednesday will be a good day if you want to come over and see the coils.
- QW (Technicoil): Danny followed up with Dale at Technicoil. Magnet delivery is on schedule.
- The second WIEN has been successfully built and pass all acceptance testing, whole magnet complete as well @ 500V <.2uA. So, in short ( no pun intended) all great and we have 2 built up WIEN dipoles.
- Also, have the horz. article roughed in on 3m test stand (as shown).
- Had meeting with DC power today (Jason), they are in the process of trying to get us going with new trim power supply by first part of next week. As soon as they complete their work we will begin power supply commissioning/testing, then move into mapping the first Horz article.
- 10/30 - From Neil
- mMy preference would be to install the stands, have them align, grout them whichever need grouting, clean up the area then install the pieces that are ready (The Gun (4 pads) + NEG tube (1 stand) + Y-chamber girder (2 pedestals) get install). We will get the rest when they become available.
- 10/23 - From Danny - on A1/A2 cube
- the cubes are ready from the machine shop.
- next step is cleaning and welding on the flanges.
- maybe labeling them if the shop did not.
- phil will pick up for clean and weld
- 10/23 - From Danny - on installation
- the wien filter girder and aperture girder and pedestals are done.
- working the Y chamber and gun locations.
- we have a 2mm discrepancy on Z locations that we want to resolve.
- that's not really holding us up, since we would adjust the coordinate numbers after we resolve it. so probably beginning of next week.
- 10/22 - From Scott - on prebuncher
- Buncher Cavity #1 is complete from a brazing stand point has been successfullyleaktested.
- If someone would like to proceed with internal inspections prior to welding conflats on, cavity can be picked up in the Brazing Facility.
Meeting October 22
- From Neil
- They are available to help with installation jobs with ~couple days notice
- From Chris
- They are available - need ME numbers ~couple days in advance

- From Keith
- Delivery date for (6) one piece Wien electrodes is Nov 18
- From Mike
- For the first magnet (Vertical Wien) coil fit up to core, it went as outlined. Conducted hipot testing every step of the way, as coils were being installed. A few problems with small shorts were becoming a problem as there was light scraping of coil epoxy to get coils into core, just enough to remove a speck of epoxy here and there mostly in corner regions and cause small shorts. Decided to remove first coil and line magnet core with .003" Kapton tape to all surfaces where coil would make contact with magnet core. Re-installed coil, as these babies are extremely tight fit as we knew would be the case after QA that was completed months ago. This worked very well and got clean hipots at 500V with <.2uA leakage. Repeated same process for the other magnet half, with same success. Modified all aluminum end plates to fit and wrapped with Kapton tape and installed. After complete magnet build with chamber installed, installed insulation and lead lugs to all conductors. Attached to terminal block and conducted another final whole magnet hipot and it was successful @ 500V <.2uA leakage for completed magnet assy. We will be color coding the leads after mapping, as per my discussion with Carlos yesterday. Craned the completed first article to 5m test stand and we installed the end plates with small bore hole in middle of plate, so this first article is ready for the stand next week.
- As for the second article (Horizonal Wien) same process with coil/magnet build up now have good clean hipots on both top and bottom sections. The problem on this second article was the SS ears on vacuum chamber (interference with matting surface) and the thickness of the alum end plates. So reached out to Carlos and Vince to come out to shop so I could go over problem areas and provide what I considered a fair resolution and have a little team brainstorming. They both liked the ideas and apparently were going to get Joe/Danny to bless. Looks like that was achieved and the shop is making the needed modifications. Will pick up chamber and alum end plates when machining is completed.
- All in all, great progress as we are plotting along very nicely and we are engineering on the fly with calculated and proven methods or simply measure tres and cut once!
- From Joe Meyers
- Second half of 15deg bending dipole being shipped, expected next week at the Lab. Plan is to hippo and map next week along with Wiens. Joe will provide qualifying info to Jay and too Lalshmi. Important to check second half matching to first half, and compare B vs I and field map to Model. This will define any potential modifications for second magnet.
- Technicoil is ready to ship HD magnets next week.
- From Lakshmi
Presented the PSS kicker coil design variation and three conductor options to JG and JK (10/19). Awaiting decision on hardware ( expected by the end of this week) to help finalize the new design.
Meeting October 15
- From Joe, here is the latest on the AIPINJ magnets (priorities #5, #4, #2, #3, #1)
- FX & FY solenoids (Everson Tesla): Mike QC’d the last shipment of magnets and spare coils. They passed and we have accepted all 10 solenoids and 4 coils. All ETI measurement data is within the +/-5 G-cm requirement. Will send out to Jay and Lakshmi. Invoices have been approved and paid. The tooling was also shipped and can be stored with us if needed.
- DR dipole (Milhous): The 2nd half of the first article is being wound. ETA is next week. Will look to put on measurement stand ASAP.
- HD (Technicoil): Stainless bobbins completed. Starting winding. On schedule to be finished by 10/23.
- QW (Technicoil); No updates; will follow-up with Technicoil.
- Wien Dipole (Carlos): Wien cores delivered to MMF shop. Mike will start the coil fit-up process with coils and vacuum chamber next week (10/19-10/23). Mike performs final assembly and measurements first two weeks of Nov. (11/3-11/13).
- PSS kicker
- Lakshmi completing analysis (due latest Monday) on PSS kicker using 3 types of conductor (reason for add'l work is long lead time availability of Plan A wire)
- Jerry providing input on PSS power supply
- We'll evaluate options and schedule soon, then pick a direction
