The first electric-driven steel rolling mill in the United States was installed about four years ago by the Carnegie Steel Company at their Edgar Thomson Works. Since then a number of other electric mill drives have been installed and run with entire success, a noteworthy example being found at the steel plant at Gary, Indiana.
