    Industry needs more flexible methods of programming machine cycles to achieve automatic operation of machine tools in limited-quantity production. Part of this need is met by numerical control systems which command the machine in accordance with prepared numerical instructions read from a storage medium. Such numerical instruction can be stored in binary or decimal numerical form on punched telegraph tape, punched tabulating cards, magnetic tape, and many other data storage mediums. Numerical control systems are well adapted to control of machine tools such as lathes, turret punch presses and boring, drilling, and milling machines. The numerical control system for a Wiedemann turret punch press is a typical example illustrating the problems of joining controls and machines into a smoothly working combination.

  • Electromechanically Stabilized D.C. Amplifier for Use in Transducing and Telemetering of Milli-Voltage and Micro-Ampere Signals

    This amplifier as presently designed with the available type of deflecting meter can reliably, within the specifications, amplify direct input voltages and currents as small as 5 millivolts and 20 micro-amperes, respectively. It appears that the limitation on increasing the sensitivity is basically the increased effect of meter friction which in turn causes the unit to be more vibration and position sensitive. This amplification is linear, stable and free of drift. In addition, the mechanical nature of the amplifier limits the frequency of the input to a few cycles per second. Nevertheless, in the higher ranges, this unit offers a compact and simple amplifier which is continually stabilized by the electromechanical action of a deflecting meter movement. The capacity pick-up design of position, which adds only a small constant force to the delicate meter suspension, is extremely simple and appears to have infinite resolution. The only critical components are easily obtained stable resistors which are the only components pertinent to calibration. These resistors can be so modified in value as to permit any type of input range or combination thereof by means of a selector switch. For use with thermocouples the use of a very stable and compact mercury cell for cold-end compensation makes the unit independent of cold end temperature variations. The input circuit (depending upon the type of measurement) offers either a very high or very low impedance to the source, making the unit suitable for amplifying a wide variety of electrical phenomena.

  • Industrial Applications of X-Ray Techniques

    The attempt has been made to give a general picture of the field covered by x-ray equipment for industrial applications rather than to give detailed information about specific applications. The wide assortment of such applications calls for a wide variety of equipment designs and much specialized knowledge on the designers' part, not only of x-ray physics but of electrical and electronic apparatus and circuitry and of the particular industrial field for which the equipmnent is intended to be applied.

    After a brief summary of the theory of electronically produced pulses of light, energy storage systems, and energy converting devices, a review is made of commonly used triggering and controlling elements. A series of practical devices utilizing the previously described methods are discussed, showing typical stroboscopes, high-speed single-flash photographic lights, high-speed motion-picture lights, and flash sequence equipment.

  • Survey of Today's Use of Power Rectifiers in Industry

    Publication Year: 1955 , Page(s): 69 - 77
    Save to Project icon | Request Permissions | Click to expandQuick Abstract | PDF file iconPDF (3908 KB)  

    This paper has given a thumbnail sketch of today's use of various types of power rectifiers in industry. The picture is broad because it involves so many kinds of rectifiers and types of rectifier equipment, as well as varieties of application. It will be seen that the rectifying devices used for industrial rectifier units (mercury-arc rectifier tubes and semi-conductors) are similar to many of the devices used in electronics and communication, if not in size, at least in principle of operation. Thus the industrial engineer, the user of power rectifier equipment, and the radio engineer, today have a common interest in the science of electronics and electronic circuits. Electronics has provided the vital tool for the development of radio and telecommunication. It has provided for industry a tool which is often superior in performance, simpler in operation, and generally more attractive than other alternative ways of doing the-same job. The greatest strides forward will probably be made in the field of semi-conductors. Germanium may be expected to largely replace mechanical rectifiers and compete seriously with mercury-arc rectifiers up to voltages of about 500 direct current. Silicon metallic rectifiers will very likely prove to supplement but not replace germanium as a useful commercial product. View full abstract»
