"Animation and actuality footage which illustrates how automation has had an impact in the auto parts industry."


"Films for Business," Canadian Business 29 (June 1956): 64.
"Here for both the technical man and general audiences, is how automatic machinery is made in Canada for industrial applications. To illustrate automation in industrial equipment this film uses a 12-station palletised type transfer machine built for one of Canada's automobile manufacturers. It shows how the machine can perform over 5500 operations per hour on die-cast aluminum torque converter housings. The film follows one part through the machine picturing each operation in detail."
