Efforts were directed towards increased production capability to ensure that 2N560, 2N1051, 2N1072 and 2N1195 transistors and ten types of .4 watt diodes can be produced in sufficient quantity for the Nike-Zeus Missile Defense Network. As integrated transistor production line provides the high- volume production capability needed for 2N560, 2N1051 and 2N1195 transistors, TO-5 de vices. Seventeen machines were developed to pro duce these devices under this contract. Nine ma chines have been assigned to 2N559 and 2N1094 production since integrating the mechanized tran sistor production lines. Certain machines were modified so TO-5 devices as well as the TO-18 devices of that Contract can be processed. Production of 2N1072 transistors was augmented during this Production Engineering Measure by mechg two bottleneck operations of the manual production line. The high-volume production capability for the .4 watt diodes was established by providing 10 prototype machines and 2 commercial machines. High-volume production tooling was developed for one commercial machine.
