Complete change in heat treating practice and installation of new equipment for rapid quantity production were necessitated by the sudden great increase in orders for aero‐engines and pressure for greater ouput by the Wright Aeronautical Corporation. Old, slow methods had to be abandoned and superseded by a continuous, fast, line‐production system which required suitable new equipment for the purpose. The change‐over at the company's enlarged plant at Paterson, New Jersey, was completed last year.
