HEAT-TREATING FURNACES - 2438-A

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.

This picture illustrates why this title has been awarded the Packard Motor Car
Company. Here is a Packard vee-type 8-cylinder motor, designed and built for
the United States Tank Corps by Packard for the exact purpose for which it is
best suited, ie, propelling a ponderous tank where vibration has no part in
specifications nor beauty of line and simplicity in design are discussed in the
calculation of the result.
Packard has no prejudice about motors. It has built practically all types of
water and air-cooled motors that were best suited for their individual purposes.
PACKARD CAN CLAIM WIDER EXPERIENCE IN THE BUILDING OF GASOLINE ENGINES IN ALL
CONCEIVABLE FORMS THAN CAN ANY OTHER MANUFACTURER IN THE WORLD.
Judgment comes only through experience. That's why age is usually wiser than
youth. Packard knows what is best by actual practical experience. We have built
1-cylinder, 2-cylinder, 4-cylinder, 6-cylinder, 8-cylinder, 12-cylinder,
18-cylinder and 24-cylinder engines - EACH DESIGNED AND BEST SUITED FOR ITS
SPECIAL PURPOSE.
Is it any wonder that out of all this experience - out of what we have learned
in aircraft, marine and automobile, engine designing - that we today proclaim the
8-cylinder in line automobile engine as not only the acme of perfection but the
ultimate in design and simplicity?

As far back as the history of vehicles goes, manufacturers have found it necessary
to employ high-priced workmen to stripe and finish the product. Striping
was just as good and no better than the disposition of the operator. It remained
for Packard to invent, design and patent the simple apparatus illustrated in this
picture for striping Packard bodies

This illustration shows an operator in the Packard factory using the Packard
striping machine. Much more than hard-to-control hands is saved, and again - a
better job is accomplished by this ingenious device.
Time formerly required to stripe an average body has been cut from 2 hours to 15
minutes.

This is a diagram of the controlled outlet used at the various stations requiring
frequent lubrication. Each outlet controls the flow of clean oil to exactly the
right quantity to each wearing surface. In addition to being metered accurately,
the oil is strained through a bronze screen and also through a pledget of cotton
before it is delivered to its destination. Clean oil is the only sure method of
reducing friction to the minimum. A car without centralized lubrication is not
a modern automobile.

Internal, expanding, self-energizing, three shoe brake used on all four wheels
of Packard vehicles. The cam at the top of the photograph spreads the two upper
shoes. This action on the upper left shoe which is not anchored to the backing
plate forces the lower shoe against the drum. The braking action is aided by the
rotation of the brake drum - thus a moving car creates its own braking energy.
Note the simplicity of construction and the constant pressure of each shoe against
the drum. Today's higher speeds demand better and more dependable brakes
