Experience From the Construction of a New Fast Wire Scanner Prototype for the CERN-SPS and its Optimisation for Installation in the CERN-PS Booster
Conference contribution, 2015
A new design of wire scanner is under development for the LHC Injector Upgrade project at CERN. A prototype has been designed, built and installed in the SPS accelerator to test the concept in an operational accelerator environment. New technology has been developed and qualified for in-vacuum motor and structural components using 3D metal additive machining. This paper will describe the technology developed for this scanner and the test results to date. This prototype has recently been re-optimised to fit in the limited space available in the PS Booster rings. This design will also be presented.
