Abstract:

The sample lot of 100 Type 6080WB electron tubes, fabricated as the end-product of this program, was subjected to heater-cycling, shock, fatigue, 2000-hour life, stability and survival, and electrical acceptance tests. After testing, tubes were examined physically and metallographically to determine cause of failure. Of the 35 failures, 7 rejects were attributable to weld defects. Failures due to inadequacies in this first effort with ultrasonic welding tooling can be minimized or eliminated through further optimization of the special tooling beyond that provided for under the scope of this program. These results demonstrate the potential capability of the ultrasonic welding process in electron-tube manufacture. Author
