A system was designed for University of Chicago (Advanced Photon Source – USA) that allows for the positioning of a large press that is aligned with the beam and a detector, located downstream. Since the press and detector need to move independently, two sub-systems were designed. One sub-system controls the motion of the 600lb press, while the second sub-system supports a detector assembly and provides motion in several directions. Both sub-systems share a set of guide rails which are mounted to a large base plate. This plate is designed to be grouted to the hutch floor, providing a permanent and stable base for the entire system. The sub-systems can be manually moved back and forth on the guide rails and secured using manual rail clamps.
