Our team of sales and engineering professionals has over 140 years of coating
industry experience. They are backed by superior in-house sales support and
responsive manufacturing using the latest equipment and technology. You can rely
on us to develop a custom hanging solution that will...
The following are recent examples of custom hanging products that we have
designed and manufactured for various companies to solve their specific needs:
As the foremost hook manufacturer in North
America, we offer custom hooks from 0.031” Ø
to 1.00” in round or square wire. Materials include, mild steel, tempered/spring steel, stainless, oil hardened and Inconel. We have the
capacity of producing up to 500,000 hooks per
day in our Chicago factory. Blanket Orders, Requirement Orders or special packaging requirements can be accommodated. Loading and
strength recommendations can be provided to
suit your particular application or requirements.
Custom hooks can be provided in a little as 5 days.
A world leader in lighting wanted to mask a heat sink area from paint after it had
been washed but before it entered the coating area. Our chief engineer designed an
extremely effective cantilever mechanical mask, that would allow the part to be
washed in the open position and then be flipped closed prior to entering the coating
area. The rack and mask was constructed durable enough to maintain tolerances
after continuous burn-off stripping. The integrated rack and mask provided significant cost savings for the customer by eliminating the material and labor cost of tape
masking the area.

3D Rack Modeling
Our 3D modeling software allows us to reduce
prototype and development time on large scale
projects by designing highly customized racks
virtually. In this model, the customer required
parts to be hung as kits. Our engineers worked
with part positioning on a virtual rack with the
customer to optimize loading and rack density.
Only after a final design was achieved, was a
prototype built, tested and approved for
360° Batch Rack
Designed to powder paint hydraulic pumps,
with various length cylinders, in a recently
installed batch operation. The custom rack
design exceeded expectations and addressed
the following customer criteria...
Simplify the hanging parts on the rack.
Integrate removable crossbar to accommodate various length hydraulic cylinder units.
Provide the ability to rotate the inner frame while the outer rack frame stays locked in position (the purpose of this feature was to have a single worker paint one side of the pumps and then rotate the inner rack frame with the flip of a latch to paint the other side, making it less time consuming and easier to rotate the parts in a confined paint space.)
Provide the ability to easily disassemble the inner rack frame from the outer frame for paint removal and storage.
Integrated hook storage and burn-off cart. The
A-Frame design is compact, but versatile and
holds a variety of hook sizes efficiently and
ergonomically without tangling. The top frame
lifts off the base and can be placed on the
burn-off oven trolley or set directly inside the
oven. Hooks are handled only twice, during
loading and unloading from the line, saving
significant and valuable labor hours by
eliminated unnecessary handling and sorting.
Heavy-duty welded construction provides
years of constant usage. Standard cart designs are available but can be easily and cost
effectively customized for your specific
The custom load bar integrated with our patented Angle-Pivot® technology shown
here was designed and manufactured for large agricultural part conveyance. With
our own 5x10 ft. CNC plasma table capable of cutting from 24 gauge to 3/4” thick
steel and an in-house machine shop, we can design and manufacture custom load
bars and cross bar attachments for enclosed track, I-beam or Power-and-Free conveyors. Prototype and production quantities can be constructed cost effectively and
shipped within days of approved designs.
