    The author introduces Philco's TV middle-of-the-road philosophy for component parts. Basic ground rules are laid down, such as: machines must be simple and specialized; parts must be uniform and easy to handle. A considerable Philco experience with component insertion is indicated. It is pointed out that "universal" insertion machines are always more costly than specialized capital equipment. Comp... View full abstract»

  • A Punch-Card-Controlled Component-Part Insertion Machine

    Publication Year: 1959, Page(s):39 - 42
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1088 KB)

    A new high-speed programmed insertion device for axial-lead component parts is described, which produces the "Y" coordinate motion by movement of the printed wiring board and the "X" and "Z" motion by movements of the insertion head. Although the basic idea is not new, it is claimed that its combination with novel mechanisms has resulted in a truly high-speed experimental programmed machine. Succe... View full abstract»

    EXAMINATIONS of the parameters effecting the reliability of thru connections indicate the following major factors: compatibility of the metal used in the hole with the surface metal, the condition of the laminate in the vicinity of the hole wall, and the relative stresses introduced by environmental cycling. Although advances have been made in all methods of side-to-side connection, most users are... View full abstract»

  • Microminiaturization Techniques

    Publication Year: 1959, Page(s): 50
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (56 KB)

    THE need of microminiaturization is discussed, and the first approach to the problem is introduced. Tiny active component assemblies, with extremely high packaging-densities are described. The method of assembly and testing is necessarily unique because the smallest available component parts which must be used are difficult to wire and trouble-shoot. Some conclusions regarding principles of constr... View full abstract»

    THE application of transistors to military electronicequipment designs has revolutionized the concepts of size, weight, power requirements, and structure. The performance of certain functions using transistors instead of tubes results in a tremendous saving in power, thereby reducing the cooling-air requirements, and allowing in many instances an order-of-magnitude reduction in size and weight.

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (2200 KB)

    It is reported that as of last year, an estimated 627,000,000 component parts have been mechanically assembled into 26,000,000 printed wiring boards. It is stated that the production equipment requirements and desires of the various assemblers of electronics equipment vary from a single bench-mounted inserting machine (for small lots), to the punched-card-controlled automatic-assembly machine, or ...

  • Automation of Single-Axis Floated-Gyro Drift Measurement

    Publication Year: 1959, Page(s):51 - 55
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (976 KB)

    This paper describes the technique and equipment developed for automating measurement of the drift rate of precision single-axis floated gyros. The basic construction principles of singleaxis floated gyros are described and illustrated. The sources and components of drift are then discussed and defined. The random component of drift is shown to be a useful measure of gyro quality and is, by reason... View full abstract»

    The growth of our microminiaturization capabilities to date is cited as having been random and uncoordinated. The Signal Corps' micro-module effort is described as a definite step toward a concept that has depth and scope. A new dimension--a ten-to-one size reduction over the best now realized, is selected as reasonably attainable in 3 to 5 years. Named as providing the background for the present ...

    IN this age of missiles, computers, and airborne instruments, the stringent demands placed on electronic engineers and component manufacturers to produce smaller and smaller components have necessitated new techniques in production. Equipment manufacturers, such as our company, have recently concluded extensive development programs to offer to the electronics industry the practical means for manuf... View full abstract»

    It is pointed out that certain basic design disciplines are prerequisite to more effective mechanized use of printed wiring. The 25-rail layout grid is described as one of these basic prerequisites. Specification SCL-6225, "Design Requirements for AutoSembled Army Signal Electronic Equipment," is presented as a basis for the present recommendations. The concept of "projected component volumes" is ... View full abstract»

    POLYSTRIP Cable is a thin, multiple-conductor, flexible cable. It consists of a number of parallel fiat copper wires sandwiched between polyester plastic layers. The cable occupies little volume, having a thickness of 0.009 inch and is flexible enough to fit into irregular spaces. It can reduce cable weight by as much as 80 percent in many applications. All conductors are prepositioned in the same... View full abstract»

    The fallacies of present methods of Research and Development are discussed, and it is explained why these methods are being used today. It is posed that research itself needs researching. Inhibited thinking is charged with the predominant responsibility for limited research productiveness. Lack of imagination, fear of ridicule, desire to invent at the exclusion of facts, schedules and resistance t... View full abstract»

    A realistic appraisal is made of present capacitordesign improvements, and of immediately-forseeable design trends. Three trends are discussed--those toward reliability, low voltage, and automation. In the area of reliability, accelerated-life and vibration test results are presented, covering 8950 "Hyrel Q" impregnated-paper capacitors. It is pointed out that as the demand for such capacitors inc... View full abstract»
