  • Lay-up procedure
  • Cure procedure
  • Pre-assembly processing
  • Comparison of prototype to production partsSchematic of PST Assembly
  • The Pixel Support Tube Assembly comprises the shell, the rails on which the pixel detector slides, the mount connections to the SCT, and the thermal isolation system

  • Fiberglass mat, EX1515U, [0,0,+60,-60]S
  • 8-ply symmetric lay-up of YSH-80 (carbon) and AQ-II (fiberglass) with a layer of fiberglass mat to prevent carbon particle liberation
  • Plies are cut to allow for axial and circumferential interweaving
  • Shell Laminate
  • 0 plies laid-up separately and with tension
  • -60 and +60 plies stacked and pre-compacted before lay-up
  • Stack is compacted on mandrel after each new layer application
  • Heater panels layed-up as last step before cure
  • Prototype: plies interleaved in the hoop direction
  • Production: plies interleaved in hoop and axial directions
  • Shell Laminate
  • Production mandrel will be 2500 mm long
  • Production shell laminates shall be 457.5 mm OD
  • Barrel shell length: 1631 mm
  • Forward shell lengths: 2276.5
  • PST Flange Assembly: Flange
  • [+/-45, +/-45, +/-45]
  • 3-ply involute lay-up of CN60 strips with 2/3 overlap of each strip
  • Lay-up on flange tool with collar
  • Trimming of Flange
  • Flange lip is trimmed to size with a router on a trim plate
  • PST Flange Assembly: Backing Ring
  • [0/90,+/-45, 0/90,+/-45, 0/90,+/-45, 0/90,+/-45]S
  • 16-ply lay-up of CN60 cloth in alternating orientations
  • Total post-cure thickness is 4 mm
  • Lay-up a large ring out of which the backing ring is cut
  • Trimming of Backing Ring
  • Water-jet cut backing ring out of large lay-up
  • Cut bevel with router on the same trim plate as the flange
  • Mount Pad
  • [0/90,0/90,+/-45, +/-45, 0/90,+/-45, 0/90, +/-45, +/-45, 0/90,0/90]
  • 11-ply quasi-symmetric lay-up of CN60 cloth
  • Darts are used to ensure proper conformance to tool shape
  • Mount Pad
  • Part is trimmed on a custom vacuum chuck
  • Flat and Vee Rail
  • EX1515, [0/90, 0/90, 0/90, 0/90, 0/90, 0/90, 0/90]
  • 1 ply of EX1515 followed by 7 plies of P30 cloth
  • Stacks of 3-4 plies are pre-compacted before being layed-up
  • Part trimmed to length on the tool
  • Tool is supported during cure to minimize out-of-straightness
  • Hoop Stiffener
  • [+/-45,0/90,+/-45]
  • 3-ply CN60 lay-up
  • Dart to ensure proper conformance to tool shape
  • Made in 3 parts
  • Heater Panel
  • Custom-made part supplied by vendor
  • Kapton with copper sputter-coated on both sides, Aluminum foil on one side, polymer coverlay on the other side. Heater traces and connection pads etched onto copper.
  • 4 positive leads and 1 negative to allow for multiple connection possibilities
  • Connection points for EMI shielding
  • Jumper across mount pad area
  • Heater Panel
  • Shell with co-bonded heater panels
  • Flexure Mounts
  • 3 Flexures, 1 Solid Block
  • Made of Titanium
  • Still in design phase
  • Machined and Other Parts
  • Pixel mount
  • Mount block
  • Mount insulator shim
  • Mount insulator pad
  • Wire harness
  • Adhesive (Hysol 9396)
  • Connector
  • Comparison of Prototype to Production Parts
  • Successfully built all composite parts except hoop stiffeners
  • Shell laminate with heater panels
  • Flange and backing ring
  • Flat and Vee rails
  • Mount pads
  • Length of shell prototype is shorter and shell lay-up method is slightly different. Plies will be the same.
  • All other components are equivalent to production parts.
