... another job Electricity is
doing to help win the wa~r
A MACHINE GUN firing 1200 shells per minue requires
mass production on a big scale to keep it supplied with
ammunition. The metal links that make a continuous
chain of machinc gun bullets are a good example. Mil-
lions of these links are turned out daily in a single local
plant, and thanks to electricity, the whole job is com-
pletely automatic from start to finish.
Starting with a steel strip, the stock feeds through mul-
tiple stamping machines to make the "green" link (not
yet heat treated). Then on a continuous conveyor belt, the
links go successively to electric furnaces for hardening,
to shot blasting machines, to draw furnaces for morejheat
treating, to a rust preventive bath, and finally to bins
where every link is tested for strength and accurate
dimensions. They then slide down a chute and are pack-
aged into waterproof cartons, which-after spot testing
by Army inspectors-are conveyed directly into box cars.
Machine gun links by the carload are only ONE of the
thousands of jobs that electricity is doing today in arsen-
als and war plants. Electric power is a weapon of war
... making its strength felt on the production lines that
