The JT-60SA vacuum vessel (150 tons) is a double wall torus structure and the maximum major radius of 5.0 m and height of 6.6 m. The manufacturing design concept is that the vessel is split in the 10 toroidal sectors manufactured at factory, and assembled on-site; seven of the 40-degree sectors, two of the 30-degree beside final one, and the final of the 20-degree. The final sector is assembled with the VV thermal shield and toroidal field magnets into the 340-degree as prepared in one sector. Sectors are temporally fitted on-site and adjusted one over the other before the assembly. After measurement of the dimensions and the reference, these sectors are transferred onto the cryostat base. First, three 80-degree sectors are manufactured with mating each 40-degree sector by direct joint welding. The rest sectors including the final sector are jointed with splice plates. Welding manipulator and its guide rails are used for these welding. In this paper, the detail of the VV sectors assembly including the final sector is explained. Welding technologies to joint the two of 40-degree sectors are reported with the present manufacturing status and the welding trial on the vertical stub with the partial mock-up of the final sector are discussed with the assembly process.

The real vacuum vessel (VV) manufacturing of JT-60SA has started since Nov. 2009 at Toshiba. Prior to starting manufacturing, fundamental welding R&Ds had been performed by three stages. In the first stage, primary tests for screening welding method were performed. In the second stage, the trial welding for 1m-long straight and curved double shell samples were conducted. The dependences of welding quality and distortion on the welding conditions, such as arc voltage and current, setting accuracy, welding sequence, the shape of grooves, etc. were measured. In addition, welding condition with low heat input was explored. In the last stage, fabrication sequence was confirmed and established by the trial manufacturing of the 20$$^{circ}$$ upper half mock-up. This poster presents the R&D results obtained in the first and second stages.

Based on the R&Ds including trial manufacturing of 20 deg. upper half mock-up, the real product manufacturing of vacuum vessel for JT-60SA has started since November 2009 at TOSHIBA Keihin Product Operations. The cross section of the VV is D-shaped and made of low cobalt content SUS316L. The height and outer diameter of the torus are 6.6m and 9.95m respectively. The weight is about 150 ton. The present status of the manufacturing is introduced in this poster presentation. 2009 for the inboard (IB) and since August, 2010 for the outboard (OB). Completed IB and OB 20-degree upper or lower segments for VV-D02 and VV-D03 will be connected into full 40-degree IB and OB segments from December, 2010. The welding between 40-degree IB and OB segments of the first 40-degree sector (VV-D02) is to be started at JAEA Naka Fusion Institute in 2011.

In the operation of Tokamak device, such loads as electromagnetic and seismic are assumed to be imposed on the vacuum vessel (VV), and not a little thermal expansion takes place when VV is baked. The gravity support (GS) has to support the loads described above in addition to the dead weight of VV including in-vessel components and compensate deformation. The GS is equipped with leaf spring that has both stiffness and flexibility. In this study, the FEM analysis-based design and assembly procedure of the GS is reported. The manufacturing process of GS components is also reported with trial manufacturing results.
