Recently, huge forklifts have been making their way through the experiment hall transporting the heavy lead walls that are making up the experiment and optics hutches for one of MAX IV’s highest energy beamlines. DanMAX is under construction and the beamline team is expecting to receive its first users around early 2020, says one
The contract for the X-ray optics for the beamline was awarded to FMB Oxford Ltd. FMBO will deliver all of the optical components in the beamline and parts of the radiation safety equipment. The preliminary design is ongoing and the components will be delivered in the fall of 2019.
The specifications for the X-ray optics for DanMAX has been finalised and the call for tender has just been published. You can find the call for tender on Tenders Electronics Daily: http://ted.europa.eu/TED/notice/udl?uri=TED:NOTICE:93496-2018:TEXT:EN:HTML
Yesterday the DanMAX 3m long in-vacuum undulator arrived at MAX IV after a long trip from Hitachi Metal Ltd. in Japan. Today it has been unboxed and we were able to get a first look. Once installed the undulator will deliver the most brilliant X-ray beam at MAX IV. Before shipping the undulator went through
The components of DanMAX front end had arrived at the MAX IV site and are waiting now for the installation in the storage ring tunnel and final site acceptance tests.
Some of the world’s leading researchers in material research gathered in Odense, Denmark in January 2017 to agree on the final details of DanMAX – the future Danish beamline at MAX IV. MAX IV will be one of the world’s leading X-ray sources when it is in full operation in a few years. At MAX IV
The front end for DanMAX has been ordered. Toyama will deliver the front end to safely handle the extremely powerful beam from the IVU16 undulator. The front end will be delivered in the spring of 2017.
The 3 m long in vacuum undulator (IVU16) for DanMAX has been ordered. Hitachi Metals Europe GmbH will deliver the device which will be the most powerful undulator source at MAX IV. The undulator will be delivered in the fall of 2017.
The DanMAX undulator call for tender (as an option for the CoSAXS project undulator) has been sent out. See mote details at http://ted.europa.eu/udl?uri=TED:NOTICE:110068-2016:TEXT:EN:HTML&src=0
