Meeting September 24

Meeting summary goes here...

  • 9/21 as-found of Gun table, 2I pedestal, Y-chamber an HV chamber => AIPINJ - S&A Transmittals
  • Need to include laser table footprint in model, to see if Y-chamber solenoid needs to flip direction
  • Status of purchases

Meeting September 17

  • qw magnet- i would guess it's about the same as the MDH, but that was a quantity of 12. the MQWs are a quantity of 32. so 30k.
  • pedestals-shaun got a quote for 4.3k.
  • girders-shaun got a preliminary quote several weeks ago for 5k.
  • QW crosses- 5.2k
  • A1/A2 fixture- guess 2k
  • conflat hardware, gaskets, fittings
  • 15 degree dipole shim
  • MHD clamp cover
  • MQW supports
  • PSS kicker
  • viewer assembly jig
  • any wien filter stuff- i don't know of any that's ready, one piece electrode?
  • buncher- do you want something on this? i would have to think some more.

MHD status (9/11)

  • Status so far: the order was placed on september 8th with a due date of october 23. about 6.5 weeks.
  • the drawings and models have been revised to suit technicoil's comments => signed off 9/11
  • technicoil plans on ordering the materials today, they'll let us know the material delivery schedule.
  • all the coils will not be made from the same wire spool. the wire comes in 8-10 lb spools or 80-100 lb spools. they need about 20-25 lbs., so they would use 2-3 spools of 8-10 lbs. each coil will be 95 turns
  • technicoil is willing to measure actual wire diameter and make the bobbin groove width to suit, after our approval.
    • this won't cause any delays unless the wire comes later than the stainless steel.
    • wire diameter varies throughout the length on the same spool. they can measure both ends of the wire.
    • each bobbin may be different. this may cause problems if we ever re-wind wire on a bobbin.
    • their preference is to make all the bobbins have a groove width of .872". that's how they normally make such coils and have had no issues. there is allowance to use spacers in the groove if needed if the wire comes in small.

  • Same pedestals, no modifications expected
  • Want to have a look on Sep 21
  • From Joe M. on DR - The latest is they wound the first coil and found it exceeded the top of the journal so they needed a week to back it out and re-wind it. That was last week. I got Jami involved with the communication so I will follow-up with her to get an updated delivery date.
Region 3

  • BUncher on track
  • From Danny, wien filter: keith modeling for one piece electrode. chris gould will map contour. evidently, CMM is too backed up.
Region 4
  • Region 4 pedestals/and girder
  • From Danny, additional MFX mounting fixtures ordered.
  • From Danny, MHD purchase req. signed off and assigned to albert dechrisopher yesterday at 1pm. it's a priority one so he should award soon.
  • From Danny, revised MHD magnet collar to suit lakshmi's comments, waiting for approval to be able to order.
  • From Danny, marked and gave 4.5" cubes to shop for drilling of tooling ball holes and welding of manipulator tube.
  • From Danny, A1/A2 cube spool pieces drawings signed off. two of three quotes in, almost ready to order.

  • both bunchers in machine shop for first trimming after RF tuning. should be done in a couple of days.
  • submitted order to the machine shop for modifying A1 and A2 cubes.

Meeting August 6



  • First solenoid in TL 1137. The magnet map starts with the side away from the water lines. The first lead is labelled 1. Phil has confirmed orientation and drawing for rotatable and non-rotatable flanges.
  • Second solenoid in magnet lab for mapping, finishing installing on v-blocks, mapping to start soon
  • The next solenoids are in process, hope to see third solenoid next week?

15 deg Dipole magnet update: Mike B. They have worked on a dummy coil, first production coil has been started.

Aperture correctors: drawing done, Danny has out to the usual suspects for quote process.

 *Boltup on top of cubes will require welding a fixture to the cube since there is no room for bolts adjacent to the aperture manipulators and magnets. 
 *Cubes also need machining for survey tooling balls
 *Add labels – engraved or punched – to the cubes indicating orientation
 *Danny working on print

From Lakshmi:

 *MHD integrated field homogeneity is 99.91 % at 2 mm radius
 *The structural evaluation of the MHD coil assembly is in progress; expected to have the results this evening.
Vacuum hardware

Y chamber girder

 *Bottom flange on track to arrive next week
 *garages for laser and y chamber viewers are ready to bend at the right length and tack weld

Things ordered

 *NEG pumps for apertures just sent order ing
 *NEG pumps and supplies for wien filters and laser chamber have arrived
 *vertical flipper spool has been ordered
 *Adapter spools for aperture cubes still being finalized.

Buncher has been brazed, see detail below

Wien filter

 UITF assembled with ceramic bolts and washers to avoid high gradients on bolt head
   Consideration of very mild spring washer in ceramic bolt assembly
   Electrode plate will expand during bake, Ceramic bolt won’t expand,could strip Macor bushing
   Very thin spring washer could be used to protect macor bushing during bakeout from expansion and stripping. 
   Danny and Carlos will continue discussion

Region 1
Region 2
Region 3
  • Buncher cavity fabrication update
The ports have been brazed in and are leak tight. (three ports on the body, two end tubes) the machine shop removed some tooling that was accidentally brazed to the i.d. of one of the ports and rounded out one of the cavity bodies that had gotten out-of-round due to brazing.  Haipeng has clamped everything together and done his first test and trimming calculation. Haipeng will take both cavities to the shop today and have them bore out the bodies to 1/2 of what the's calculated the trimming to be.
Region 4

Meeting July 30

Region 1
  • Small shed electrode has been surveyed, back in the lab, needs CO2 jet and store
  • First round of NEG coating light, so Phil will continue, wrap up next week.

  • Phil needs measurement from Shaun for correction insertion, then will get them cut and tacked welded chamber (Phil has 5)
  • McMaster Carr stand-offs, the oldest one
  • From Milhous: We wound a “dummy” coil and tweaked the tooling. The first production coil is a couple layers into winding and looks good. We probably need two weeks to finish both coils.
Region 3
  • Bubba re-assembled the UITF Wien filter w/ ceramic screws an standoffs (instead of metal)
  • Wien bake 160-175 (Carlos concerned about the bake-out) Carlos concerned about breaking Ceramic (needs spring washer)
  • Wien goes to UITF next Tuesday, and high voltage testing when time there is no beam
  • Wien fixture design completed, Danny starting to send for bids (to get 3)
  • Danny thinks buncher jobs are moving OK w/o additional meeting for it
  • Drawings for pedestals needs to be completed, but will happen after A1
  • Last week Scott Williams brazed one part OK, another part came out of round and a tool part stuck, machine shopped fixed found
  • Haipeng has one cavity, will start testing, then take to machine shop for machining
  • Danny is asking Haipeng to double-check the numbers
Region 4
  • Lakshmi presented new HD coil design, will use MWS 14 AWG copper wire, has 50% overhead (design ~2A, operate to ~3A), quantifying next order six-pole within r=2mm, can use 3A or 10A card, will need a clamp shell for the heat treatment of 200-250 C.
  • Joe G. will contact Sarin about trim card, up to 3.4 A, copy Lakshmi
  • Gary almost done w/ detail of HD bobbin, will then send to Lakshmi for mechanical analysis
  • Shaun and Gary are finishing the A1/A2 design, and spoke to Chris Gould about tooling ball location
  • Joe started listing names for song sheet, will circulated for review, and then to Danny for songsheet update, then distributed to installation teams

Last Week's Talking Points - May 21

  • Progress!
First coat of green paint on "core"
Y/Laser chamber viewers
  • Design status
Wien Filter
From Mike Beck - The 6 new "Wien" coils meet dimensional check acceptance criteria and counted turn count all as required at 2 layers x 13 turns per. Will put spread sheet with dimensional data together in coming days. Also, checked resistance on all 6, the range was consistent at ~.2 ohms. The visual quality of coils that Technicoil provided are nice in appearance.  Will conduct hipot testing when able to get back onsite and confirm the rest of QA acceptance testing, fit to core (when core arrives), and mapping required.
Wien coils in crate at MMF
MHD A1/A2 Steering Coils
PSS Kicker
  • ME model status
  • Getting quotes (2-4)
Wien quads
  • CED from Gary Croke => MQW: B'L = 15 G/A with +/- 3A limits
  • Will circulate when done
