2 Electro-polishing (EP) process EP is thought to be the best final surface-polishing process of ILC 9-cell cavity to achieve high-gradient specification of ILC.EP is also most complicated/costy surface-preparation process in the cavity mass-production of ILC.The current standard EP method is called “horizontal EP process”, where a cavity is set up in a horizontal posture and the cavity is rotated during the EP process.In order to achieve simpler and more cost-effective EP process, ”vertical EP process” is studied in many laboratories in the world, where a cavity is set up in a vertical and fixed posture.
3 Horizontal EP (HEP) / Vertical EP (VEP) Rotation of cavity in HEP process.(HEP setup at KEK-STF)EP electrolyte is fully filled.EP electrolyte is half filled.Turning the EP-bed for drainingNo rotation of cavity in VEP process.(VEP setup at Saclay)

8 Development of retractable wing-shape cathode in collaboration with Marui Co. Ltd. The hydrogen gas generated during EP process is the most difficult problem.Lower side: smooth.Upper side: stripe by bubbles.Flaws observed after VEP with inadequate parameters (voltage, temp, flow rate, etc...):Stripe on surface (due to bubbles)Rough surfaceThese problems should be overcome.

20 SummaryKEK started the R&D of Vertical EP (VEP) process in collaboration with Marui Galvanizing Co. Ltd.Special cathode “Ninja” is developed by Marui Galvanizing Co. Ltd. for VEP process. The “Ninja” cathode has retractable-wings which realize uniform flow of electrolyte and uniform distribution of electric current.VEP experiments are performed with single-cell cavities, single-cell coupon cavity, and 9-cell cavities to optimize the parameters.Single-cell cavity “1AC3” provided by CEA Saclay will be VEP’ed with “Ninja” cathode and the cavity will be VT’ed at CEA Saclay.New COI building will be equipped with VEP/HEP compatible setup by MHI, which was already delivered to KEK. The setup will be installed into the new COI building in 2015.
