A class of dynamic material property (DMP) experiments on the Sandia National Laboratories 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 1-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 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 6 months. Since June 2016, this multi-press design has successfully assembled 60 planar DMP targets. The development considerations for this new device and the resulting benefits for the fabrication of targets are discussed.
