General view of technicians inspecting the creel (a rack holding bobbins or spools for spinning) on a staple drawing machine used during the early stages of synthetic fiber production and research at DuPont. During the production of nylon staple, many fibers were fed together to form tow, an untwisted bundle of continuous filaments. Subsequently, the tow was fed onto rolls running at different speeds. The individuals visible in the photograph are identified as follows: R. W. Peterson (left); G. A. Kinney (center); and D. J. Lehmicke (right).
