Pioneers in fhe Ball Bearing Motor FAIRBANKS-MORSE was frst in this country to furnish a complete line of stand ard alternating current motors fitted with ball bearings. Needless to say, these machines were Fairbanks-Morse quality throughout. This pioneer work was done many years ago. Today, full half the output of our electrical manufacturing plant is devoted to the produc tion of ball bearing motors and generators. Poler users know the advantage of this type of motor for drives where practical operation de mands the reduction of friction losses and the elimination of constant oiling. We accomplish this b9 means of grease-packed ball bearings which require but little attention. CThis pioneer work and present day service to industry are the physical expressions of the standard reflected in the Fairbanks-Morse Quality Seal which images the goal of all this com pany's activities. Our products include Fairbanks Scales- oil engines-pumps-electric motors and genera tors - railway appliances and coaling stations -farm power machinery, such as"Z"engines, lighting plants, water systems.
