On a 400 acre site a few miles from the factory, Packard has built the most
unique proving ground in tb8 world of industry. Besides containing a 2fc mile
long, 50 foot wide, banked turn, oblong race track, this proving ground contains
a perfect airplane landing field.
-Equipment on this experimental speedway consists of everything from a towing
dynamometer to a testing laboratory. Proving Packard cars built from 29 years
of recorded experience calls for a different type of track and accessories than
|if. Packard were building cars in a wide range of price classifications.
As of today* a certain number of finished Packard cars are taken from the assembly
line each month and placed in test at our proving grounds. These tests run anywhere
from 5000 - to 50,000 miles and are compressed in as few as 20 days. By
working three shifts of men, cars record mileage in excess of a year's average
driving in a comparatively few hours.
|This proving ground permits actual measurements for wear on cylinders, pistons,
bearings, valve springs, transmission, universal joints and rear axles, scientifically
and accurately.
The Packard Proving Ground is a gigantic "crime detector." Through this investment
your prospect is assured of simplicity in design, durability in manufacture
and economy in operation of his Packard purchase.
This picture shows a special Packard Eight phaeton traveling at a speed in excess
of 100 miles an hour.

This illustration shows the instruments for recording temperatures used on continuous
heat-treating furnaces.
A line is drawn on each of the charts throughout each run and this accurately
records the temperature.
Equipment of this type is used on all heat-treating furnaces, enameling ovens,
paint drying ovens, core ovens and all places where accurate temperature
control is necessary.
This equipment, besides drawing a chart showing the temperature, also automatically
opens and closes either the gas or oil used for firing when the temperature
becomes either too high or low.
They are so accurate, that at temperatures of 1600 F. there is a variation of not
more than plus or minus 5 F.
You would not think much of a hospital where the temperature thermometers used
with the individual patient were not carefully checked by pre-established standards,
based on years of experience. In the Packard heat-treating department, they are
just as careful with the instruments used for recording temperatures as a hospital
superintendent is of the instruments used by his staff of physicians.
There is a crisis period in the heat-treating of every metal. If temperatures
are permitted to go beyond certain limitations, the molecules that m?*;e up this
metal break down, lose their efficiency and become worthless. We leave as little
as possible to human opinion and conjecture. Every batch of material has its own
chart. This accounts for the many numbers found on even the smallest parts.
These charts are filed for reference and constant study. Here, too, your Packard
product is protected to the maximum.

This illustration shows the continuous carburizing furnaces used for case-hardening
such parts as transmission gears, rear axle ring gears, etc. The work is
pushed through one of these furnaces at regular intervals and requires 12 hours
for the complete "cooking" process. After parts are removed, they are quenched
in oil or other solutions to harden them.
Heat-treating Packard parts is an exact science. Temperatures are used in the
Packard plant from 30 F. to 2800 F. and methods of measuring and accurately
checking these temperatures are most modern.
Heat-treating Packard parts should be interesting to your prospect. The linen
collar you have on would not look or wear so well if it were not first starched
and then heat-treated with modern machinery. Neither would our mother's pies be
so digestible if the dough in the crust were not heat-treated.
Given the same ingredients, three cooks make three different kinds of pies -
depending upon their experience, judgment and knowledge of the art of cooking.
Apply this same truth to steel, and here again, Packard having originated much
heat-treating machinery and many heat-treating processes does the job better.
Again, this is another pocketbook reason for your prospect.

After the cylinders are bored and reamed to size, the honing machine puts on the
final velvet-like finish, so necessary today in the use of high compression motors
which demand such.a small clearance between cylinder and piston. Cylinder grinding
so commonly used formerly, is now obsolete. This machine works to an accuracy
of one five-thousandths inch and is infallible in its operation and precision.

The usual method of finishing a crankshaft bearing is to use a hand lap while the
shaft is rotating in a lathe. In the Packard factory the idea illustrated in this
picture was originated to hone to size and to correct out-of-roundness and taper
on Packard crankshafts - again to insure and assure your customer's investment.
Packard has about $60,000 invested in a sufficient quantity of these machines to
keep up with present-day production. Time saved by machine over old hand method
approximately 40 minutes per unit.

This machine is used for testing the form or curve of t'he teeth of transmission
and other gears after they have been ground.
To have the tooth contour correct in transmission and other spur gears is as
important as the unit itself, for long gear life cannot be obtained without a
very careful study and check of these important points.
Every gear blank and every tooth on the finished gear are not only carefully
made, but are manufactured completely in the Packard factory. This one responsibility
in addition to the advantage gained from harmony in design of the whole,
produces perfection in the finished product.
Packard transmission gears are forged from 5% nickel steel, and after machining
are carburized and hardened. There are no finer transmission gears made. In
fact, many other companies are using an oil-hardened steel gear which, of course,
is considerably less in cost than the carburized nickel steel. Each gear receives
an individual test and again - one of the reasons why Packard.gears do last longer
and are worth more from a first cost angle.
