LIGO Document D070560-v2
- The top level assembly of the CO2 Laser Fibre Pulling Machine.
The machine design, developed in Glasgow, delivered to EGO in 2006, and installed at LASTI in 2007, that will be used to pull fibres for the aLIGO SUS ETM and ITM quad suspensions.
- Upgrade for LIGO:
Machine configuration for aLIGO as employed for the NP-type build at LASTI in May 2010.
*Removal of horizontal ballscrew unit (D060148), which had been incorporated at the outset of design such that the machine itself could perform the laser welding.
*Removal of Galvanometer feed assembly (D060151) for the same reason.
*Removal of ribbon pulling tooling (D070550_Ribbon PULL Assembly) as the baseline has changed to fibres.
