Title: Development of a Multi-Press Assembly Device for Planar Dynamic Material Property Targets

Abstract

A class of dynamic material property (DMP) experiments on the Sandia National Laboratories (SNL) pulse power Z-Machine requires planar samples to be held in a panel assembly. A custom press device to fabricate the assemblies has the ability to assemble one sample, window, or stack at a time, resulting in a one week lead time for a typical three-pocket panel assembly. Fabrication of targets with more than three pockets can take longer. In late 2015, General Atomics (GA) conceptualized a new multi-press device to enable several samples, windows, or stacks to be assembled simultaneously, and a prototype was designed, procured, and outfitted in six months. Since June 2016, this multi-press design has successfully assembled 60 planar DMP targets. Furthermore, the development considerations for this new device and the resulting benefits for the fabrication of targets are discussed.
