The first tool is usually a flat metal plate with a half round groove cut out (diameter of mandrel
+ flex thickness + a few extra mils).
Then push the mandrel
shaft and neck-turning fixture to the right until the case mouth and tip of the mandrel
are separated by about 0.
Benefits include faster set up times, ease of registration, less scrap on the front end and reduced cost, as the sleeve does not have to be the same length as the mandrel
developed a method of fabricating composites using a mold or mandrel
with a shape-memory polymer liner.
The company's mandrel
capabilities include: profiles less than 0.
A rotating mandrel
was used as the collecting surface.
Synchronization of these two movements allows a removal of the tape on the mandrel
according to geodesic lines.
The model incorporates programmable mandrel
positioning with anticipated mandrel
retraction, clamping, pressure die and boost die movements.
Use sandpaper, an electric sander, or the multitool, plus a sanding mandrel
and 60-grit 13mm sanding band.
Diverge tools also require finer programming of the differential angle between bushing and mandrel
(should be in the 2 [degrees] to 7 [degrees] range).
For formation of a cavity in an electroslag billet inside the mould an additional cooled surface, so called internal mould or a mandrel
, is introduced.
According to Mike Bair, VP and GM-787 program, the fault had been expected owing to a problem with a particular mandrel
that developed a flaw.
