Abstract: The Transparent Realignment (TR) of the Diamond Storage Ring is a program of work to improve the mechanical alignment of the machine by carefully moving the magnet girders with a virtually zero impact on the associated beamlines. The girders can be moved by means of a 5-axis motion system under remote control via the EPICS toolkit from the Diamond Control Room. Currently three cells (three girders in each) have been equipped with a permanent protection system to prevent excessive deflection across each of the inter-girder vacuum bellows. The protection and motion systems are installed in the associated Control and Instrumentation Area (CIA). Full commissioning of the motion and protection systems have been completed. Results from the alignment test sessions are hereby reported.
