Machinery In Action: Latour Multi-Slide

One of our oldest pieces of machinery at JB Springs is the Latour Multi-Slide.  The Latour Multi-Slide provides the adaptability needed for our in-house trained engineers to produce simple and complex wireform parts alike. The video below shows the machine producing a hook coned into a tension spring. We undoubtedly love investing in new machines and putting them to good use (like our BM6 in our previous blog post but this old-timer still runs well and is just as [...]

New BM6 Wireform Machine

As part of our continual investment in the latest spring and wireform production technology, we recently installed an additional Wafios BM6 CNC wire-bending machine to produce our wireform parts, using up to 13mm diameter wire. This machine provides us with further capacity in this area. You can see our original BM6 machine in action on our YouTube channel. This video shows the machine working with our Universal UR10e robot and our Keyence high-speed camera to tightly control dimensions. Established [...]
