- till middle of June: Dispenser (automatic glueing) and first mats for
Heidelberg casting tests
- second half of June: winding raw fiber mats for other sub groups
- July: building table for cutting (stone table arrives end of June)
- Beginning of August: milling spindle arrives, start of cutting

- till end of June: working on the casting machine without alignment and
development of production of own fiber mats for casting tests
- July&August: casting machine including alignment
Heidelberg with CERN (experience of Christian) will also have a look at
cutting the ends of the fiber mats (started)

- it's difficult to predict how long optimizations will take
- the limiting factor are rather the casting and cutting then the raw
fiber mats (to current knowledge)

June 12, 2013 Update


  • small wheel position optimised that:
    • full width can be used (about 5cm)
    • dispenser for automatic glueing can be used

  • next steps (probably till end of June)
    • winding on the small wheel with grooves, dispenser and fibres
    • winding on the big wheel with grooves, dispenser and fibres

  • some sucess with casting
    • different versions of molds
    • safe taking out of molded mats achieved
    • allignment will start soon

general comments:

  • Dortmund borrowed a technician from an other chair
    • will stay till start of winter semester
    • works on fibre quality machine
  • Dortmund has help from two Russian engineers:

  • Dortmund:
    • wound first 3m SciFi mat
      • automatic glueing used (dispenser)
      • width approx 1cm
    • if it was necessary a 13cm wide mat would be possible, but optimizations preferred before
      • optimize dispenser (too irregular)
      • optimize starting edge of mat
      • verify achieved quality

  • Heidelberg:
    • molds without alignment look good
      • took time to optimize (e.g. air bubbles)
    • alignment still to be implemented
cutting along fibre:

  • Dortmund:
    • see May 21
    • stone table ready to arrive
fibre end machining
