M323 Silicon Flat (Ellipse) Spec. 10272, Dwg. 26F168 Vertical deflection 6 degree

M322 Silicon Spherical (R=38.1M) Spec. 10273, Dwg. 26F239 Horizontal deflection 6 degree

the stand
The stand

The 4 posts are ASTM A500B rectangular tubing 6” x 8” x .25”

Cross members are 2” x 6” x .25”

Floor plate 1” thick

Hole in the center is for grouting with Chockfast Red

Not Zanite-filled

stability of the stand
Stability of the stand

Shear plates, no Zanite First mode at 77Hz

Zanite, no shear plates First mode at 82Hz

Without Shear Plates or Zanite - first mode at 61Hz

Engineering note number M7629 written by Will Thur recommends to have the first mode above 20Hz. As there is a cryocompressor nearby and the ARPES stand was designed to be above 60Hz, this stand meets the same goal without zanite or shear plates.

earthquake safety
Earthquake safety
  • Total mass: 1435lb
  • Pull out load per anchor :

F=(1435*.7*(32.5/31.5))/2 =518 lbs

  • Shear load :

F=1435*.7/4=251 lbs

=> Safety factor from seismic calculations is 2.8 or greater

flexure design stress
Flexure Design / Stress

Flexure: 6061-T6 Aluminum

Moment on flexure face of 1375 N-mm (12.2 in-lb) will bottom out flexure on integral hardstop

If bottomed out: 106 MPa

Max Stress allowed: 276 MPa

Safety factor: 2.6 for yielding

Will place shim in .012” (.3 mm) in gap to reduce handling issues

leaf spring mechanism
Leaf Spring Mechanism

Leaf Spring: 17-4 PH, .031 thick, 6” long

Travel: 25mm max (doesn’t bottom out)

Deformation in vertical: ~1.8mm at max

Nominal location: 12.5mm, set optic parallel to gravity at this position

Step size: 25 um (.001”) give 4.6 urad (goal) (if greater resolution desired, use .020” for the leaf spring which will give ~4x the resolution), use tilt sensor for “home” position

Stress levels: ~500 MPa, (1000 MPa yield for 17-4 PH H900 )

Bender Beam 10:1 lever

Hard stops


Silicon flat, 8mm thick, side shaping to achieve ellipse when bent

Upstream couple: 3.66 N-m (2.7 ft-lb), Downstream couple: 6.11 N-m (4.5 ft-lb)

Leaf spring thickness (up: 2.0mm, down: 2.5mm) set for 10mm displacement

Leaf spring material: 17-4 PH H900

LVDT to correlate (absolute) with bend set on LTP: resolution .05um for 1.0 mm travel
