From the history of CNIITMASH in 1941-1945
In the Institute’s forging laboratory transformed into a blacksmith shop, the technological process was successfully applied in the first months of the War, and 25,000 knife bayonets were made on forging rolls. The Moscow Proletarian Division was armed with these bayonets. In addition, the rolling of pick-up hammers was performed for miners of the Moscow coal basin and a new prospective process for rolling of coal conveyor chains was developed. This process was successfully carried out then at the “Svet Shakhtera” plant.
