Power transmission methods originate in Dodge shops Every spring, several of the more important En gineering Universities of America send the graduation class of mechanical engineers to the Dodge plant. The purpose of their visit is two-fold; they see under construc tion, everything for the mechanical transmission of power; and they see those same products in operation in the Dodge plant. Each of these graduate engineers is soon to carry his theory into actual practice. Problems of power distribution will confront him in every branch of industry. And so in the Dodge plant exhibits are arranged covering the prin ciples of shaft friction and bearing construction; Exhibits demonstrating the centrifugal effect of speed on pulley rims; Exhibits showing the result of balance and true running of fly wheels and line shaft equipments. Year after year the universities include the trip to Dodge shops in their courses-because in Dodge shops, deeply imbedded in Dodge products they see the physical demonstration of those very principles of correct engineering practice that they have learned in the textbooks of Kent, Cambria and Suplee. No matter under which of the 20 industrial classifications your busi ness may be listed, Dodge has the experience and the ability to advise with you on new additions or regarding the change of manufacture from one product to another. There is no charge for this service. And you will find a Dodge Engineer in each of our 13 Branches, whose knowledge of your power transmission problems may mean not only a vast saving to you but increased production on a more profitable basis than you now enjoy. Put your transmission troubles up to Dodge. Make us responsible for the installation, the efficient operation and the continued satisfaction of your roadbed for power.
