Abstract:

The study of hand techniques for the assembly of head to tail balloons was continued. A method for joining two inflated balloons axially was examined. The cone-edged ring method discussed in the previous quarterly report was reviewed,AND EXPERIMENTS WERE CONDUCTED WITH TAILS WHICH WERE REINFORCED AS WELL AS WITH TAILS WHICH WERE NOT REINFORCED. Balloons made from modified forms were employed in experiments for joining the head to the tail balloon. The basic types of automatic dipping machines which were examined included a twin-chain conveyor, a one-cylinder turntable, a six-cylinder turntable, and a continuous-chain conveyor. A balloon assembly machine based on the cone-edged ring method of assembly was proposed. Some design considerations were examined on the basis of the evaluation of hand techniques. Author
