This document goes through the procedure for preparing an ETM/ITM penultimate mass (D080117 and D080128) for installation into the quadruple suspension structure. The procedure consists of hydroxide catalysis bonding on a fused silica ‘ear’ (suspension element according to D080751-v1) to each of the surfaces S3 and S4 in a well-defined location, gluing wire break-off prisms to the mass, gluing magnet flags to surface S2 of the mass and re-storing the mass.
Notes and Changes:
04/08/10: Requested DCC number for the document
08/04/10: Release v1 onto DCC
02/19/11: Release v2 onto DCC
31/03/11: Release v3 onto DCC – added a small overview schedule at the start of the document
02/08/11: Release v4 onto DCC – added procedural steps to check the position of the ears and prisms on the mass, a flag to slant the mass slightly to prevent the ear from drifting away from the jig
26/08/11: Release v5 onto DCC - Correction of step 2 in the procedure on which side of the jig to
use for which surface
31/08/11: Release v6 onto DCC – correction of equation in step 41.
