Visit to IBM, October 23, 1953
Vinal, Francis E.
The Tube Laboratory at IBM under Mr. John Little has received the assignment of investigating ferrite memory core production. During the past summer, the study was initiated and although the project is not as yet fully staffed certain phases, primarily of a mechanical and materials handling nature, have already gotten under way. The work with binders for the powder compacts is well done and shows rapid progress. Ingenious ways of evaluating binder properties have enabled numbers to be used in evaluating the experimental work. Many phases are as yet untouched and no uniform core production can be anticipated in the immediate future.
