How We Create Stainless Steel Wire Baskets, Custom Wire Baskets

After the print is approved and the purchase order is accepted, the sales order is released to the engineering team and the production crew along with the client who need stainless steel wire baskets, custom wire baskets or plastic coated wire baskets. Marlin Steel Wire Products LLC Engineering Fixture Team jumps into action. Carefully reading the critical tolerances and appreciating the fit, form and function the tooling team generates precise fixtures (like molds) that holds each part as tight as +/-0.002”. The print is converted into a file that is read by our CNC Router. The CNC Router creates the fixture. The revision level, part # and date are all cut out of the check fixture so revision control is confirmed at this level of the process as well.
