Abstract

This device provides for secure anchoring of a series of top and bottom Linac stators after adjustment by means of a clamp design which provides sufficient force on each stator against a brass spacer to maintain the magnetic air gap.

Adjustable Stator Attachment for Linac Actuators

      This device provides for secure anchoring of a series of top
and bottom Linac stators after adjustment by means of a clamp design
which provides sufficient force on each stator against a brass spacer
to maintain the magnetic air gap.

      As shown in the Figure, a clamp design 1 in combination with a
stator 4 is illustrated noting that only the top portion is shown
with the bottom portion (not shown) being a mirror image of the top
portion. The clamp design 1 comprises a center body portion 2 having
sufficient fingers 3 extending outwardly from the body portion 2 to
contact all stators 4.  In the Figure, the clamp device is shown as
having enough fingers for eight stators.

      The clamp fingers 3 have a middle trough-shaped portion 3A
which deflects against the top 4A of the stators 4 when the center
body portion 2 of the clamp 1 is mounted on the stator housing 5.
This mounting is accomplished utilizing attachment means 6 such as
screws.

      In operation, after mounting the body portion 2 to the housing,
the amount of deflection of the middle trough-shaped portion 3A on
the stator top 4A is calculated to maintain the magnetic air gap
between the top and bottom stators by assuring that the stators are
in firm contact with the brass spacer.  The clamp fingers 3 are then
anchored by a weld to the stator core 4B to maintain this proper
deflection.
