Abstract:

Fabrication of a second sample lot of 100 type 6080WB electron tube mounts was successfully completed. Of 175 tube mounts started, 118 were completed up to the bulbing and basing operations. The final connection in the assembly sequence snubbers to snubber support rods was made by resistance welding, in order to utilize the more fragile alumina spacer now used in the 6080WB electron tube. The incidence of short circuits between the grid laterals and the cathode sleeve was eliminated by insertion of a steel mandrel in the cathode sleeve prior to welding.
