Abstract:

Efforts were continued on the development of facilities for high volume, low cost, production of Nuvistor tube types, with special emphasis on tube type 7587. An automatic grid lathe, exhaust machine, and lead loader will be developed and constructed. A detailed account is given of the effort expended in implementing the debugging and test phases of each task. This includes the progress made in converting the equipment into operational machinery, the problems encountered in achieving this goal, and the steps that lead to the production of engineering samples. The debugging phase of the grid lathe task, the exhaust machine task, and the lead loading unit were completed successfully. The construction of the copper washer unit was completed, and the debugging phase is nearing completion. Two lots of engineering samples were processed through the units, fully tested, and delivered.
