Abstract:

The project objective was to incorporate a hydraulic crimping station in one VO 20mm automatic cartridge assembly machine that would crimp cartridges at the assembly rate of the machine. Design investigation revealed that a 12 unit station would be the most efficient. A 12 unit station design was installed between the projectile insertion station and the chamber gage station and coordinated with all other stations of the machine. Test runs and production runs have shown this crimping station to have exceeded the best anticipated results. This crimping station has demonstrated its superiority over all other methods of crimping by eliminating the accumulation of cartridges to be recrimped with the attendant costs. Author
