    Tag Springs for Tracking Shipments and Inventory

    Are your shipping tags reliable? Do they fall off during transit or during loading and unloading? Losing track of your shipments and inventory can be costly, especially with large and heavy bundles of product.

    Mighty Hook’s new Tag Springs ensure labels stay attached to bundles throughout shipping and storing so customers receive the correct bundle. And just as importantly, Tag Springs keep track of your inventory wherever it may be stored, so you can manage your logistics and keep storage costs low.

    Tags for metal tubes

    One of the most common applications for this type of tag is bundles of metal tubes. Mighty Hook has designed its Tag Spring line with these applications in mind. Tag Springs are easy-to-use for any type of round or square tubing identification. The Hard-Drawn Spring Steel provides excellent internal retention—even through repeated uses.

    The metal processing industry is a harsh environment with extreme temperatures. That’s why the industry requires a single identification tag that can handle the temperatures and stay with a product from beginning to end. Because of the size and weight of large metal tubes, the costs of shipping and even holding inventory temporarily can be high and variable.

    Tag Spring dimensions

    Tag Springs are durable up to 750° F (400° C) to serve metal tube and pipe manufacturers, providing reliably readable barcodes for accurate inventories. We make them in three stock sizes, but custom sizes are available. Contact us with your unique requirements.

  • 4 Steps to Better Hanging Rack Systems

    4 Steps to Better Hanging Rack Systems

    Racking system planning tips for more efficient powder coating

    Custom Coating Racks    

    In the latest issue of Powder Coated Tough magazine, we outline four steps that will help you find the most efficient racking system for any product you are coating, because every product has its own unique characteristics. And even though every product hangs differently on a paint rack, the temptation is to find a one-size-fits-all solution. That instinct can actually cost you efficiencies and profits. In reality, an “all-purpose” rack is a “no-purpose” rack.


    When a customized racking system makes sense, taking the time to plan out that system for optimal results pays dividends by cutting wasted time, wasted coatings, and wasted space. Oftentimes, the most optimal solution is a balance between customization and flexibility within a single hanging racking system. You want to create an efficient system, but you don’t want to completely straitjacket your processes unnecessarily.


    Efficiency in racking is about space density on the line. The more densely you can run your products down the conveyor, the more efficiency and cost savings you can gain. There are many ways to gain throughput on the coating line without sacrificing quality. The gains you experience will come from increasing density within a custom coating rack system, increasing density on the conveyor, increasing the speed with which you can load each rack, and increasing the efficiencies of rack transfer.


    These four steps will guide you to optimal results:

    • Step 1: Racking Suitability – When should you choose racking?
    • Step 2: Dedicated vs. Modular Racking – Which will work better for you?
    • Step 3: On-line vs. Off-line Racking – Have you weighed all the factors?
    • Step 4: Optimizing Conveyor Space – Have you looked into all the options?

    Learn how to work through all four steps in the January/February issue of Powder Coated Tough magazine.

  • Spotlight's On Leigh Baird

    The Scoop at the Hook

    Spotlight's On Leigh Baird

    Leigh Baird, Customer Service Manager at Mighty Hook, the best resource for custom hanger tooling solutions

    Mighty Hook has a close-knit group of great employees. As you have recently read, several of those employees have been with the company for many years. From day-to-day, we follow our routine - good morning hello’s and fresh cups of coffee, followed by a few hours of meetings and focused productivity. Our work day is broken up by casual lunch breaks and friendly chitter chatter amongst staff, all before getting back to the grind, and ending the day with the shuffling of feet, hearty goodbye’s, and “see you tomorrow’s”. For another day, our hard work has been complimented by the good character that breathes throughout the company.

    When the rare occasion comes that a new character joins the group, we get excited for the possibility of bettering business, operation, and ourselves as a team. The introduction of this new member breathes hope into the bunch as they bring with them fresh perspective, drive, and personality.

    In March of this year, we welcomed the arrival of our new Customer Service Manager, Leigh Baird.

    Leigh has been everything we could have hoped for in a CS manager. She is thorough, organized, kind, and has a great sense of humor. She is an incredible listener and team player, and she is always willing to help find the solution to the problem. Read on below to hear Leigh’s story!

    We are so happy to have you as part of the Mighty Hook family! What drew you to Mighty Hook initially?

    One of the things that drew me to Mighty Hook was its size. For the past 10 years, I have worked for large corporations and felt more like a number than a part of a team. I have felt like a member of the team from day 1 at Mighty Hook and that’s been such a great experience.

    Have you always worked in customer service? What do you like most about role as the customer service manager?

    I have always had some type of role in customer service. I really like the interaction you get to have with your customers and building relationships with them. I have customers from my first job that still send Christmas cards every year.

    What have you enjoyed most about your time working at Mighty Hook?

    Everyone has been so welcoming and helpful in my first six months. I really enjoy coming to work each day, which is something not everyone gets to say. I feel very fortunate to have found such a good match.

    We know your many talents within the scope of your job description. What are you passionate about outside of work? What are some of your natural talents?

    Outside of work, I love both cooking and traveling. They, of course, go really well together. I love going places and experiencing them more like a local. Finding a great hole-in-the-wall restaurant or coming across a cool flea market. Getting suggestions from the people that live there has brought me to some of my favorite meals and experiences. Then it’s fun trying to replicate those meals when you get home.

    If you could offer any advice or words of wisdom to our readers – life- or work-related – what would it be?

    Don’t sweat the small stuff. In work and life, don’t let the little things that are out of your control take over.
