VELO Module Transport Box – Preliminary Design –

Ray Mountain, Sheldon Stone, Lou Buda

Syracuse University

Main Design Goal:

to provide a strong box for transport, which is easy to handle and keeps the module safe.

Secondary Intent:

to allow handling of the module by the frame as much as possible during testing stages subsequent to transport.

design 1
DESIGN (1)

FRAME:

Bottom Al (25 mm),

Sides+Top Al (19 mm) or SD Polycarbonate (25 mm).

Held at corners by two screws and epoxy.

291 mm

Clearances:

32 mm SIDE

28 mm TOP

24 mm F+B

OK?

361 mm

O-Rings:

front + back, groove on frame, prob. Viton

Attachment:

Module attached by screws, or by clamping fixture.

No real vibrational damping provided here…

width 51 mm (frame only)

Suggestion: rotating rod…

ATTACHMENT

Module attached by screws to small plate (which is fixed to rotating cylinder)

Module rotates out of plane of frame for installation and removal.

BACK COVER:

SD Polycarbonate (12 mm).

Free cover, dowels guide movement close to frame, screws attach it to frame, ~50 mm centers

FINGERS SHOWN ARE BEHIND MODULE

Suggestion: use flush captive screws – fine idea.

Compliant fingers: restrict and dampen any vibrational movement (just touching substrate or have 1 mm clearance). Attached to back cover. Material TBD.

Suggestion: add fingers below connector and modify others to contact hybrid on edges only.

FRONT COVER:

SD Polycarbonate (12 mm).

Free cover, dowels guide movement close to frame, screws attach it to frame, ~50 mm centers.

* Antistatic spray will be applied to the exterior of the polycarbonate.

Gas inlet and outlet:

Valves (approximate shape) shown, closed during transport.

Suggestion: move gas services to sides of box – fine with us.

width 76 mm (w.covers)

DESIGN (4)

OUTER COVER:

SD Polycarbonate (6 mm), to protect gas valves from getting caught while handling

Gone, if move gas services to sides

handling 1
HANDLING (1)

Scheme for handling during transport –

“007” briefcase with 1 or 2 boxes per case

Most of the vibrational damping in this design comes from the fill material:

styrofoam, bubble-wrap, airbags, or a MIXTURE

Expect low frequencies (<1 KHz) in airplane cabin, except for turbulence and landing

=> Check with UPS(?)

HANDLING (2)

Just an idea…

Strong base for holding transport boxes --

Stack one or several boxes per base in the storage / staging / work areas, so does not tip over when mounting, setting up for tests, etc…

Notches cut in transport box frame hold the boxes upright and rigid (could add stops on rail to fix its position)

HANDLING (3)

One more…

Handles? --

(of some design, maybe not this one)

- Close to frame,

- Detachable,

- Something to grab (other than module itself),

for picking up box, handling, mounting, etc…

Transport Box

Seems trivial but may be useful…

specific questions
SPECIFIC QUESTIONS
  • Is the overall size acceptable? Is the clearance from the VELO module to the frame acceptable for tooling, testing, metrology, etc.?
  • Are the materials acceptable? Is aluminum a problem for the vacuum tests?
    • So far seems OK for everyone
  • Which holes in the VELO module support can be used to attach the module to the base of the frame?
    • Use 7 mm OD clearance holes on L+R clamp-foot…
  • What is the weight of the module? The whole assembly should be kept relatively light for transport by hand (by air).
    • Shoot for 5 kg or so
  • Are the positions of the compliant fingers acceptable?
  • Vibration damping of module may not be completely accomplished by these fingers, especially if the goal is to cushion from instantaneous forces of over 100 g.
  • Is there a mechanical mock-up of the module itself that I could get, for prototyping?

NEXT
  • Next iteration ― incorporate comments, post next iteration in ~1 week. If OK…
  • Production drawings ― cut 2D drawings
  • Prototype / First Box ― make & send to Liverpool
  • Incorporate comments on first box
  • Production of remaining (50-60) boxes
