In this group the instruments are all accurate to millionths of an inch. They
are used in the Packard factory for checking daily the gages and tools used in
the manufacture of Packard cars.
The LIGHT WAVE MACHINE, shown in the upper left hand corner, is the most accurate
and absolute method of measurement ever discovered. By this simple device which
depends upon light waves for its accuracy, the very accuracy blocks which others
are satisfied with are frequently found v/ith minute imperfections.
Accuracies up to 25 millionths inch are measured by the OPTIMETER, shown
in the upper right hand corner.
The latest development, making use of the principles of radio amplification for
inspection purposes, is but another example of Packard's determination to produce
the finest of the fine. We are unable at this date to show a complete picture of
this device.
Track suits do not make record runners nor does the conferring of an MD degree
upon a medical student make a surgeon of note. These instruments are important,
but the 29 years' INTENT TO BUILD THE BEST is the thing your prospect should be
sold on. The Packard car of today is truly a product of a distinguished family.
Your prospect will understand this only by demonstrations. Again, only obedience
to certain mathematical laws, to which Packard takes no exceptions, and operating
under certain predetermined principles will produce a fine product.
