Alternate Production Processes for Fuze Pinions
NATIONAL MATERIALS ADVISORY BOARD (NAS-NAE) WASHINGTON DC
Pagination or Media Count:
A study was conducted of possible methods for producing small pinions that would not involve use of imported machinery or scarce skills. Four methods were identified zinc die casting, plastic molding, powder compaction, and chemical etchingdiffusion bonding. All processes are probably economically competitive, but each has some limitations, which are outlined. Additional recommendations of a more general nature are included.
