  1. New Technology,New Progressive Die Work With Laser Weld, And A New Year!

    Comments Off on New Technology,New Progressive Die Work With Laser Weld, And A New Year!

    As 2016 approaches, we thought we’d tell you a little bit about what’s been happening at Ohio Valley Manufacturing this past year, and what we’re planning for the New Year. Overall, 2015 has been a great year for our company, and we recently received some exciting new work involving laser weld technology. It’s highly advanced technology that joins two steel coils, welding them together. Then, the welded coils run through our machines and are stamped out. The welded coils are being used as crash absorbers in vehicle crash panels to keep drivers safe.

    A recent industry report says, “Joining coils is part of the steel industry’s day-to-day business. For machines to work continuously, coil welding machines positioned at the beginning of the rolling mill connect the tail end of one coil to the beginning of the next, creating an endless ribbon… some steel is best joined using laser welding…”

    Apparently, we’re among the first in the U.S. and overseas to do progressive die work with laser weld. (We’ve been told we are the first to do progressive die work with laser weld and coil, but this hasn’t been confirmed yet!) In Europe, they have been using similar technology, for several years now, and we’re excited to begin working with it in the U.S. The report quoted earlier in this post also states, “Laser welding has come to dominate in many areas, but resistance welding is still the most widely used…” At Ohio Valley Manufacturing, we have the capabilities to do both – and we also do so much more.

    We’re a key supplier of first operation blanking, stampings, for a variety of industries, including automotive, trucking, transportation, appliances, agricultural equipment, lawn & garden products, suspension parts, and more. Learn more about Ohio Valley Manufacturing and our capabilities by visiting our website. Or give us a call at 419-522-5818 and we’d be happy to tell you more. We hope to hear from you soon! But, in the meantime, we wish you a Happy New Year, and thank you for reading our blog.
