Induction Coil Furnace Answer
To Huge Demands in Industry
. . . By l lhx
By Ed Hirsch.
One of the newest innovations in
industry that will make passible
the huge demands of President
Roosevelt is the induction furnace
in the opinion of W. F. Weiland.
professor of mechanical engineer
ing The induction furnace consists
merely of a coil through which
electricity is conducted. When
metal is placed inside of the coil,
the piece within a few seconds be
comes heated. Only in the last few
years has the induction furnace
been used and has been continu
ously improved since its introduc
tion. Refines Grains.
In the armament plants the in
duction heating has been used
extensively. And to accelerate the
production of engines installed in
our airplanes and tanks, the induc
tion method is used to harden the
surface of the crank shafts. Also,
to strengthen welded joints, the in
duction coil is wrapped around the
metal and heated. This refines the
"The interesting thing about his
method," Professor Weiland said,
"is that only the surface of the
steel is heated. When the metal ia
placed in the coil, it is only held
there for a few seconds. Then it is
pulled out and cooled quickly in
water oil. This process hardens
the surface and only toughens the
This method is quick and easy as
the furnace takes up only a small
space. "For one particular job a
special furnace must be built,"
Professor Weiland explained. "But

a quantity of one certain part, then

Charcoal Boxes Used.
In World war I, Professor Wei
land said that the factories used
charcoal boxes to harden a desired
surface. The piece of metal was
placed in these particular boxes
and were heated from eight to ten
hours. The metal was then taken
out and cooled slowly. Many of
the plants were lucky to complete
the hardening of one piece in one
day. Induction heating is a form
of this case hardening which will
however, not entirely replace it.

One of the amazing things about
this furnace is that you can plane
your hand on the coil and nothing

Earl Maxwell, extension for
ester at the college of agriculture
revealed last week that he had
been requested by the War Pro
duction Board to take a census of
sawmills in Nebraska, and the ap
proximate amount of lumber
sawed by each during 1941.
Maxwell pointed out that while
numerous states rank well ahead
of Nebraska and other plains
states in production of lumber,
yet the number of the mills and
their output is more than is popu
larly believed. Most of the mills
are in the eastern part of the state
and the bulk of the lumber is
used on the farm where it is pro
duced. Two counties bordering on
the Missouri river have about a
score of sawmills and one of these
produced about 100,000 board feet
of lumber in 1941.
