One Location For Information On The Spring and Wire Forming Industry
From obtaining raw material to quoting jobs-and everything in between-the springmaker needs all the help he can get. That’s why I built this site. I decided to put all the info I have in this one place. I hope it will become a regular stop when looking for the answer to your need.
I have been in this industry since 1970. I've seen the squeeze on the manufacturer.
It started with all those quality programs - SPC, SQC, Q1, QS, TA, ISO, etc.
Next came lean manufacturing. Remember your customer sending over their teams to “help” you decrease production cost? They showed you how to "improve" your methods. Then they requested price reductions!
Following that, there are on line auctions. You had to bid against industrial companies from all over the world just to keep the jobs you had for years. What will they think of next?
You go out and buy some new CNC wire bending machinery to help you compete. Next year it’s out of date. Worse yet, after a few years, you’ve lost the manual. How do you train the new guy on that machine? The only guy who knew it left the company. Where do you get the replacement parts? Even the guy you bought it from can’t find them.
This is your tool for help.
