The Advanced Photon Source-Upgrade (APS-U) project* is under construction and will incorporate a new Multi-Bend Achromat (MBA) lattice. With this design, the new storage ring will require over 1320 new magnets that are being produced under build-to-print contracts to several vendors across the globe. Magnetic measurements are needed to characterize and fiducialize all these magnets to ensure field quality and alignment requirements are met. Seven specialized test benches were designed and built to meet the measurement requirements. These measurement benches may be classified into two groups. The first group is the field quality measurement that includes the strength of the main field and higher harmonics. The multipole magnets are measured using four rotating coil benches, whereas the longitudinal gradient dipoles are mapped using a Hall probe system. The second group is fiducialization that locates the magnetic center of the magnet using a rotating wire and relates it to magnet fiducials and reference surfaces using a laser tracker. This information accompanies each magnet through the module assembly and final installation in the ring to ensure that the magnet is aligned within the allowable tolerance. To date, about 65% of all magnets needed for the storage ring have been measured and fiducialized. Mechanical design of the measurement benches will be presented.
