Heat-treating Equipment And Methods For Mass Production

The heat-treating department of the Brown-Lipe-Chapin Company,

Syracuse, N. Y., runs day and night, and besides handling all the

hardening of tools, parts of jigs, fixtures, special machines and

appliances, carburizes and heat-treats every month between 150,000

and 200,000 gears, pinions, crosses and other components entering

into the construction of differentials for automobiles.

The treatment of the steel really begins in the mill, where the

steel is made to conform to a specific formula. On the arrival

of the rough forgings at the Brown-Lipe-Chapin factory, the first

of a long series of inspections begins.
