UNIFORMITY IS ESSENTIAL

When every electric motor conforms to the specifications, they are all exactly alike.
This necessity is further emphasized in big railway electrification projects by the requirement that every motor shall be interchangeable with every other motor of the same size and type. By mounting four large twin-motor frames on a planer, Westinghouse Electric and Manufacturing Company gets this degree of uniformity.
Slowly, powerfully the platform carrying the frames moves back and forth beneath cutting tools fastened to the cross beam. Absolute uniformity is the result.
