Custom Hooks

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.

Integrated Rack/Mask

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 production.

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...

  1. Simplify the hanging parts on the rack.
  2. Integrate removable crossbar to accommodate various length hydraulic cylinder units.
  3. 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.)
  4. Provide the ability to easily disassemble the inner rack frame from the outer frame for paint removal and storage.

Storage/Burn-off Cart

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 requirements.

Load Bars

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.
