Abstract:

This report describes the process controls utilized in producing high quality M796 Impulse Cartridges. In the initial study, emphasis was placed on material controls and manufacturing techniques to arrive at the desired item functioning characteristics. This led to the evolution of production of the impulse cartridge from a labor intensive hand line through development and fabrication of an automated machine for assembly.
