  1. Ohio Valley Manufacturing Expands in the New Year

    Comments Off on Ohio Valley Manufacturing Expands in the New Year

    As we start 2015 we’re very excited to announce that our new press is operational. Over the past year we worked on expanding our manufacturing space to better accommodate our customers’ needs. Our new equipment is a 3000 ton Danly press which is equipped with a knockout system, a bed size of 120” by 96”. The press also has a special place in Ohio Valley Manufacturing’s history as this was the same press our grandfather, Mick Fanello purchased while running his own blanking and stamping company. The press helped him grow his business and we’re excited for it to help us grow Ohio Valley Manufacturing.

    The new expansion will allow us to blank and form on this press greater than .500 material and will give Ohio Valley Manufacturing two presses that have this capability under one roof. The new press also provides a back up to our 4000 ton press which we didn’t previously have a backup for. Now this will allow us to have a backup on hand for all our presses.

    In addition to our new manufacturing expansion we are also planning a new expansion to our office space to support our growing company. To learn more about our company and our new Danly press, visit our website and be sure to follow us on Twitter and LinkedIn for more company updates.

  3. Heavy Gauges and Higher Goals

    Comments Off on Heavy Gauges and Higher Goals

    In our last blog, we talked a lot about innovation and progress – well, we’re here again to tell you about a few concrete examples of our commitment to improving our systems and capabilities.  Meet the two newest improvements to our medley of manufacturing equipment: a heavy duty Hammerle roller leveler, and a new feed line setup for our 1800 ton press.

    The Hammerle is a beauty and a beast all in one.  It’s a heavy gauge roller leveler (0.020 to 0.500 gauge), and it’s capable of tighter tolerances than that of a regular press line.  This machine will allow us to achieve the higher tolerances in house, which is a benefit to our customer’s schedules as well as specifications.  And it’s already in operation.

    Our next new toy is an improved Automatic feed line setup for our 1800 ton Verson press, ¼ inch by 60 inches wide.  This feed line allows us to run heavier gauges than previously possible on our 1800 ton press, and will supplement the capabilities of our 4000 ton press.

    These improvements give us several end results: an improved capability for flatness spec needs, an ability to flatten steel of higher tensile strength than we previously had capability for, and the backup presses necessary for emergency or rush orders.  We can now do heavier orders to tighter tolerances faster than we ever could before.  We’re always improving our business here, and striving to stay at the top of our game – these additions to our arsenal are just the latest manifestations of that commitment to help lead manufacturing here in Ohio to greater heights.
