ASCO Sintering Company, Commerce, CA has supplied a selection of four different fuse rotors, used in 40mm and 50 mm high explosive and training rounds, for over 50 years. These highly detailed precision components are assembled with a segment gear to house a detonator. The assembly provides the time delay necessary to move the munition projectile from an unarmed to armed state after impact. The rotors are made from a proprietary 80/20 brass material that provides the ductility, elongation and strength necessary for consistent and reliable and quality performance. The material is processed to density of 8.0 grams/cc, has an ultimate tensile strength of 35 KSI and an apparent hardness of 82 HRH. The rotors are inspected for shear and ductility to ensure successful function during the swaging assembly operation. All but the 40mm high velocity rotor, which is drilled at a compound angle and 100% verified by a 100% in-line vision system, are produced net shape.
