Abstract

The present paper introduces a remote robot solution for maintenance of divertor in DEMO fusion reactor. The task of the robot is to lift and extraction the divertor cassette within the vacuum vessel (VV) of DEMO. The kinematic design of the robot has been optimized for the DEMO access, inverse kinematics of the robot solution are introduced. A preliminary concept of the robot solution is built and the uninstallation of divertor cassette is illustrated. Main components are presented in detail and FE analysis of the main component of the solution is carried out.
