Which one is correct?
If both are correct, which one is preferable in a scientific dialect?


A. The electrode was pressurized at 1000 psi and punched into 10 mm diameter disks.

B. The electrode was pressurized at 1000 psi and punched into disks of 10 mm in diameter.

    This is a self-made sentence that I want to include it in a paper.
    I am describing the assembly process of a battery in several steps. During one of these steps, electrodes are pressed into disks.

    B. The electrode was pressurized at to 1000 psi and then punched into disks of 10 mm in diameter.

    That would be my suggestion. You don't need both "of" and "in". You could take out either but I think taking out "of" gives a better-sounding result.

    I added "then" because you are talking about an assembly process with different steps and "then" makes the time sequence clearer. (You could leave it out though.)
