Abstract : Effects continued to provide critical facilities for the high volume, low cast, production of nuvistor tube types, with special emphasis on tube type 7587, by the development and construction of an automatic grid lathe, exhaust machine, and lead loader. The truss grid and exhaust machines have achieved production levels of output and are in regular, scheduled factory use. The lead loader and copper washer machines were debugged, tested, and are ready for production use. The preproduction samples were fabricated in accordance with the contract provisions, and arrangements were made to test the tubes with Signal Corps personnel in attendance. (Author)
