With APSU well into the procurement phase of the project, the APSU assembly team has completed a "DLMA Practice Assembly", comprising of the support system, and all magnets required to complete a module. The purpose of this test was to verify assembly and documentation procedures, ensure proper fit between mating components, and verify that alignment specifications can be met. The results of this exercise are presented. Though this test was completed on the Argonne site, work continues on building 981, the APSU offsite warehouse, where our first production plinths and girders have been shipped, and where production modules will be assembled. This space has been outfitted by Argonne contractors and APSU Assembly technicians with 1) 5 parallel DLM/FODO module assembly stations, each complete with a 3 tn. overhead crane, retractable cleanroom, staging tables, and tools, and 2) 2 QMQ module assembly stations each complete with a 5 tn. gantry crane, assembly support stands, staging tables, and tools. An overview of this production assembly space is also presented.
