Young man with a Future in the ATOMIC AGE
Today, this young engineer is helping us solve the complex problems inherent in the development of a nuclear aircraft engine. He is doing engineering that offers innumerable opportunities for creative thinking. Frequently, he works on problems that could lead to early professional recognition.
When cars have a life expectancy of 1,000,000 miles...
chances are that research with electron diffraction will have helped make this come true •The General Electric electron diffraction instrument is versatile and easy to operate. The unit consists of vacuum system, electron gun, power supply and complete camera assembly — all the components required to produce both reflection and transmission photographs from a wide variety of samples.
do you know this man?
do you know this man? Here’s his dossier: Graduate Engineer, in his thirties. Lost in a large engineering group. Married, has good paying job but no future. Could go far with right opportunity for creative engineering work. If you know this man, tell him to communicate with J. M. Hollyday, Dept. S-3, The Glenn L. […]
naval fire-control... AND FORD INSTRUMENT COMPANY
Firing at a target many miles away from a pitching and rolling ship, steaming at full speed, requires rapid, complicated computations. Special computers and drives must do this job. Throughout the past forty years, engineers of Ford Instrument Company have been specialists in this field — from their design of the earliest Rangekeeper in World War I to the latest great Naval electro-mechanical-electronic computers. As in their missile and aircraft instruments, their nuclear controls and weapon systems, the criteria of dependability and precision are the characteristics of Ford designed and manufactured computers and controls.
Perfecting Tomorrow's Turbines
Many complex and intricate computations are required to evaluate test cell runs ... to design turbines with ever-increasing efficiency of performance. Univac Scientific is the ideal electronic computing system for the task. It can easily accomplish these feats of mathematics — and solve the many problems encountered in data reduction, compressor off-design, turbine off-design, wheel design and analysis, and engine performance.
Automatic Lumberjack - 1958
NEW DEPARTURES OF TOMORROW Automatic Lumberjack – 1958 Even Paul Bunyan couldn’t match the pace of this “automatic lumberjack” of the future. It fells, sections and loads trees—all at the push of a button! The company that launches this wonder will probably look to New Departure for ball bearings. For New Departures have proved their […]
Bell Ad: Very Early Routing Tables
When the Bell System's latest dial equipment receives orders to connect your telephone with another in a distant city, it must find-quickly and automatically—the best route. Route information is supplied in code—as holes punched on steel cards. When a call comes in, the dial system selects the appropriate card, then reads it by means of light beams and photo-transistors. Should the preferred route be in use the system looks up an alternate route.
"Giant Brains" for Business & Industry?
Would modern electronic equipment really improve a company's operations... decrease its costs? If so-where? In production control? Payroll accounting? Customer billing? Factory automation? What make of equipment is best? What changes in company methods and procedures would be required?
