ESBC and Hercules Drawn Steel would like to thank Mr. Warren Brooks (Secretary of the PMPA SE Michigan Chapter and from Huron Automatic Screw Company) for arranging the tour of Hercules Drawn Steel on Tuesday, March 13, 2012. The event was well attended with seventeen different companies represented.
The program consisted of an overview of the Eaton family of companies, a detailed look at Hercules Drawn Steel, the benefits of cold drawn bar products, and a guided tour of the Hercules facility.
The tour took the groups through the entire cold drawing process, from hot rolled being shot blasted to banding and tagging. Participants were able to see the various types of cold drawn benches we posses at Hercules. They viewed our bar to bar Wean line and two of our coil fed Schumag lines, the 4D and KZ80.
This was a great event and beneficial to both the ESBC/Hercules team as well as the attendees. We at ESBC and Hercules appreciate the opportunity presented to us by the PMPA to host a fantastic event like this.
