Type B (Mark)
Past week report
At Kamioka (Mark, Fabian, Enzo, Hirata-san):
- Enzo and Fabian routed all the SF/... cabling up past the SF and anchored it to the PI.
- Enzo and Fabian moved the vacuum feedthroughs to new positions on the assembly frame corresponding more closely to the positions on the tank.
- Hirata-san received the LBB blades back from additional machining, and he and Mark characterized them, and chose the 3 that were most closely matched. The total load capacity is 294 kg, which is rather larger than the 202 kg for the LBB and intermediate ring.
- Mark measured all the coil resistances for the LVDTs and steppers on the PI to check everything was wired properly.
- Hirata-san received the outrigger plates for the LBB black from additional machining to add helicoils but discovered that they were not M16 fine pitch but M16 regular. He sent them off again to be corrected.
- Mark and Hirata-san inspected the vacuum tank and discovered that the top section is on backwards relative to the 3D CAD so that the jacks supporting the tank and the jacks supporting the PI via bellows are interchanged. We decided that, for the test hang, we would put the suspension in with a 135° anticlockwise rotation (instead of a 45° clockwise one). For the final hang, we will build the suspension with the BS/RM section backwards.
- Fabian moved the F0 trim mass from on top of the F0 keystone and anchored it to the SF, keeping about 0.5 kg in reserve to allow for the weight of the SF-PI cables.
- Enzo, Fabian and Hirata-san rearranged the in-air cabling for the OSEMs to match changes to the in-vacuum cables.
