Continuous improvement model a benefit to worldwide customer base
Along with its aggressive new product release schedule, Sjogren Industries has continued to survey its current product line with an eye toward innovation.
Consequently, the company has redesigned its line of HD straighteners to help its customers reduce cost and increase productivity.
Heavy Duty (HD) straighteners accommodate large diameter wire and rod, using sleeve-style grooved rolls made from hardened tool steel. Sjogren’s customizable HD line accommodates wire diameters up to 30mm / 1.18″.
Recently, Sjogren made the following refinements to its HD straighteners.
- Decreased the weight by 20%
- Re-designed the frame with a modular concept so the HD0515 and HD1020 accept wire diameters 5-20mm and the HD1525 and HD1030 can accept 15-30mm wire simply by interchanging the rolls.
- Created efficiencies in manufacturing reducing costs and market pricing.
- All units are now easily adaptable to hydraulic quick opening
The innovators at Sjogren know that having the correct tooling will eliminate costly downtime, improve life expectancy and efficiencies for its customers.
Founded in 1927 by Oscar Sjogren, the company has long been an innovator in the design and manufacturing of customized solutions for the wire tooling trades. Today Sjogren Industries delivers high quality machinery, tooling and accessories to a worldwide customer base with distributors located in Europe, South America, Asia, and Mexico.
