Abstract : Primary effort was devoted to the adaptation of the equipment to production techniques and schedules, the manufacture of the preproduction samples, and the evaluation and establishment of proper control parameters. A production rate of approximately two starts per day was maintained. Occasional rates of three or four plates per day were checked out to prove the maximum capability of the facility based on an eight hour working day. Process timers used for turning on equipment before working hours were added to increase this capability. Production results indicated that 57 out of the 97 processed plates were good in all respects. The major loss was due to green spots or heavy metal contamination of the luminescent coating. Most of this is attributed to the contamination of the air space within the facility. (Author)
