- Cleans ceramics and syntactic foam with electric eraser, isopropyl alcohol and paper towels.
- Pays close attention to detail regarding condition of parts. Notifies supervisor of discrepant material.
- Prepares cut wire with use of Eraser brush-wire stripper. Pre-tins stripped wire.
- Solders appropriate size solder spots on negative side of ceramic to ensure proper fit to syntactic foam notch.
- Solders wire(s) to solder spot(s) using care to maintain original solder spot size with regard to syntactic foam notch requirements.
- Weighs and mixes epoxy for lamination use between ceramic and syntactic foam disks.
- Laminates ceramic disk to foam disk. Operates press to secure disks together. Places laminated element in appropriate fixturing using care to maintain straightness of element, secures in fixture with torque driver, as required.
- Cures elements in oven for appropriate length of time.
- Tests frequency using digital test equipment, Mode 1 program.
- Solders additional wires to element, as required.
- Places o-rings onto elements and inserts elements into airducer housings using appropriate fixtures, as required and using care to ensure proper placement.
- Weighs and mixes urethane foam. Fills airducer assemblies with foam using care to ensure foam properly covers element and o-ring.
- Cures foamed airducers in oven for appropriate length of time.
- Assembles connector to housing cap and solders wires to connector pins, as required.
- Positions housing cap in place. Obtains epoxy from pour room and back-fills airducer using care not to overfill.
- Operates propane torch to de-gas curing epoxy.
- Places completed airducers into appropriate container and forwards to tuning operation. Tunes airducers by placing into semi-automatic equipment and alternating cutting and testing operation until desired performance is achieved.
- Places unit in pin stamper for P/N and date identification.
- Assists in other assembly areas as required.
