NOvA Block Pivoter Pusher Weldment FEA
Tests of the pivoter drive system with the mock block in June 2012 showed that some operators were un-able to ease the pivoter up against the booked. Other operators were able to move the pivoter with sufficient precision. Because there remains a possibility that when the pivoter is loaded with the first real detector block, it will need more control for the last inch of travel than is presently available. Therefore, this mechanism was developed to allow a hydraulic cylinder to move the pivoter.
