The ESS elliptical superconducting linac consists of two types of 704.42 MHz cavities, medium and high beta, to accelerate the beam from 216 MeV (spoke cavity linac) up to the full energy at 2 GeV. The last linac optimization, called Optimus+, has been carried out taking into account the limitations of SRF cavity performance (field emission). The medium and high-beta parts of the linac are composed of 36 and 84 elliptical cavities, with geometrical beta values of 0.67 and 0.86 respectively. We

We describe here the procedures and numerical analysis leading from half-cells to a complete medium cavity assembly, which take into account not only the frequency of the fundamental accelerating mode but also the higher order modes near the machine line. The half cell selection process to form dumb bells will be described, as well as the reshaping and trimming procedure.
