His career began in the late 1940s as a research physicist at International Harvester in Chicago where he took pictures of the internal structure of metals with an electron microscope. In the early 1950s, he took a position as chief engineer at the Illium Corporation, a foundry specializing in casting technology. Here, he invented a casting machine to make nozzles used in the meatpacking industry (it made sausages). Iverson soon moved on to become sales manager and chief metallurgist at Cannon Muskegon Corporation in Michigan, a producer of specialized nickel, iron, and cobalt alloys.

Liquid steel is first poured into the funnel. Its up and down motion keeps the metal from sticking to its sides and coaxes a rectangular piece of steel “as thick and wide as a queen-sized mattress” to slide down to the bottom of the apparatus where it is withdrawn and sent through a massive, half mile-long hot rolling mill that pounds the slab into sheet steel between 3 and 20 mm thick. These sheets eventually become the steel used in such products as automotive bodies, appliances, and industrial machinery.
