A wide variety of tuning techniques has been developed and employed at Advanced Photon Source (APS) in the course of tuning insertion devices for use on the APS storage ring, the APS free electron laser, and in assisting with the LCLS undulator tuning. The tuning requirements for the National Synchrotron Source II (NSLS-II) damping wigglers are very demanding and include limits on the off-midplane field integrals that are new in the repertoire of undulator magnetic tuning. The goal of this study was to assess the applicability of existing tuning techniques to meeting the off-midplane requirements of NSLS-II. Tests were run using an available APS 8.5-cm-period wiggler. In addition to existing techniques, a special new shim design was tested. This report summarizes the results of these tests and shows that the wiggler can be tuned to the required specifications on the midplane over the requested ±15 mm in the horizontal direction. In the vertical direction, however, the specifications could only be met within ±0.5 mm. This falls short of the ±15 mm by ± 3 mm good-field region that is sought by NSLS-II.
