Type B (Mark)
Past week report
At Kamioka (Mark, Fabian, Enzo, Hirata-san):
- We disconnected the in-vacuum and in-air cabling from the feedthroughs.
- We removed crossbars below BF and SF.
- We set the SF damper to 4 mm clearance.
- We adjusted the jacks to nominal height.
- We removed the geophones and PI yaw stepper for craning.
- We craned the suspension into the tank, and hooked the LBB Cu ring.
- We replaced the geophones etc.
- We unlocked all but the IP and adjusted the jacks until the pendulum was centered in the security structure.
- We unlocked the IP and adjusted to to center with the jacks and fishing rods.
- We craned the vacuum tank lid+ring back on, and then removed just the lid (only).
- We unclamped the LBB damper rings and removed the spacers.
- We removed the blocks and shims supporting the LBB, inserted the long screw feet and hooked the LBB to the Cu damper ring.
- We added 2*31.5 kg of ballast to the LBB, which got the blades to the point where firm pressure would depress the tips.
- We reconnected the in-vacuum cabling. In ≈15 places we opted to omit the Type 1 cable and use a F-F gender bender.
- We reconnected all but four of the in-air cables.
Plan for week of 6/26
Mark and Enzo at Kamioka:
- Double-check where gender-benders were used.
- Finish connecting in-air cabling.
- Debug all cabling.
- Work with Simon to set up LSOL.
Fabian at Mitaka:
- Design final ballast masses for IM, BF and SF assuming no BF rebuild (needs to be adaptable).
- Check all items for BS flag/prism gluing are available (prisms, flags, jigs, mirror box, glue, scale, mixing tools etc).
Hirata-san at Mitaka:
- Do new 3D CAD:
- BS Test Hang build, with top of tank, full suspension, and LBB damper all reversed.
- Final BS build, as above, but with everything BF down rotated back to original.
- In-tank version.
- On-assembly-frame version. (Adjust jack positions if possible, or leave for Mark to do.)
- SR2 on BS assembly frame. (Adjust jack positions if possible, or leave for Mark to do.)
