Optimizations on 200 kV electrostatic accelerator have been done in order to increasing ion current on target, improving vacuum condition and reduction in x-rays emission, increasing stability of high voltage power supply and reaching much greater achievable voltage value. The accelerator tube has most important effect on beam tracing in the electrostatic accelerators. So precautions most be considered in designing and constructing of this part. In order to finding permissible tolerances in construction and assembling of 200 kV electrostatic accelerator column, first the effects of angle deviation of a part from accelerator axis on beam track in the accelerator tube was simulated with Simion 7.0 computer program. We found that in order to prevent beam lost, the tolerances of balancing and co-centering of each part should be smaller than 0.1 mm. Each part of accelerator tube constructed by tolerances lower than 0.05 mm. Ultrasonic cleaning method used in pre-assembling process of parts. Because of its excellences, in the new tube we used borosilicate glass instead of high density alumina as insulators between the metallic electrodes. After three days of working vacuum pumps the system reached to 8.0×10-7 and after months to 5.0×10-7 ultimate pressure values. Measurements showed that by these considerations the maximum of reachable ion current on target was 1.1 mA which increased 50% compared to old machine, while x-ray emission intensity was increased by 25%. Optimizations of high voltage power supply are now under studies and tests
