NEW MAGNETIC PATH

Electric Transformers

ca. 1943

This worker at the Westinghouse Transformer Division, Sharon, Pa., has just finished winding a Hipersil core for an electric transformer and is spot-welding the last two layers together to keep it from unraveling.

Hipersil is the new Westinghouse magnetic steel that can carry one-third more magnetic flux, or "magnetism", and permits transformers to be built smaller and better.
