On the Job at Tobyhanna: Techs Perform Metal Photo Processing

(Targeted News Service Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) TOBYHANNA ARMY DEPOT, Pa., Jan. 30 -- The U.S. Army issued the following news: Brian Dooley, a metal photo processor here, begins manufacturing a silksceen by stretching fabric across a wooden frame table. Dooley works in the depot's Components Plating Branch, Systems Integration and Support Directorate.

Branch employees perform electroplating processes for all fabricated items produced at Tobyhanna Army Depot as well as items scheduled for overhaul.

Processes vary from the submerge plating of alodine and zinc phosphate for items to be painted, and anodizing helmet brackets, to state-of-the-art computerized engraving machines. Employees also make and verify individual unique identification plates and process numerous silk screens to meet customer needs.

The Components Plating Branch consists of two sections, the Plating Shop and the Photo Fabrication Shop. The Plating Shop is a large, modern facility, while the Photo Shop boasts the newest Individual Unique Identification plate-making technology and updated computerized engraving machines.

Tobyhanna Army Depot is the Defense Department's largest center for the repair, overhaul and fabrication of a wide variety of electronics systems and components, from tactical field radios to the ground terminals for the defense satellite communications network. Tobyhanna's missions support all branches of the Armed Forces.

About 5,400 personnel are employed at Tobyhanna, which is located in the Pocono Mountains of northeastern Pennsylvania.
