Abstract

For equipment containing delicate components suitable for mobile operation, such as magnetic core memories used for computers installed in rockets, missiles, satellites and space vehicles, thin plastic foils of adequate elasticity are cut to shape as required. Such foils are heat-seamed to form baglike structures which are subsequently inflated to be employed as air-filled or gas-filled cushions.

Shock Proof and Vibration Proof Packing

For equipment containing delicate components suitable for mobile operation, such as magnetic core memories used for computers installed in rockets, missiles, satellites and space vehicles, thin plastic foils of adequate elasticity are cut to shape as required. Such foils are heat-seamed to form baglike structures which are subsequently inflated to be employed as air-filled or gas-filled cushions.

For the padding of core matrices, the bags can take the form of flat rectangular pockets with at least one air inlet 1. The bags are inserted in the intermatrix spaces, filled with air to an adequate pressure, and sealed.

For cooling during normal operation, the bags include air ducts 2, which are formed by the heat-sealed seams 3, as well as two air inlets 1. The latter are arranged in such fashion that the inlets on all bags are connected in series to form a continuous air circulation path.
