During the period of operator training and preproduction evaluation with the 600-watt ultrasonic welder at Tung-Sol Electric Incorporated, difficulties developed with some of the special tools required for fabrication of the Type 6080WB electron tube. Some trouble was also experienced with replacements fabricated at Aeroprojects to the specifications of the original tools. Remedial action for these difficulties has been initiated, and tools have been redesigned for resistance to accidental damage. The 600-watt welder has been returned to Aeroprojects laboratories for systematic checkout of the redesigned tooling and review of the assembly sequence for the Type 6080WB electron tube. Three welding tips and one anvil assembly have been fabricated and evaluated, and the remaining tooling revisions will be completed shortly. Investigations with the tungsten-rhenium wire, as well as the molybdenum frame grid welding study, have been curtailed because of the effort required with the redesign and evaluation of the tube welding tools. A 600-watt welding tip for the frame grid welding study has been fabricated, and welding investigations will be resumed during the forthcoming report interval.
