Introduction/Capabilities East Stroudsburg Facility East Stroudsburg Facility Introduction/Capabilities East Stroudsburg Facility Introduction/Capabilities Located in East Stroudsburg, in the heart of Pennsylvania’s Pocono Mountains, the Cooper Power Systems’ Line Construction Materials facility has earned the reputation for over 70 years of being a reliable, quality manufacturer of a wide variety of hardware products. Our facility has always had, and continues to have a long term commitment to exceptional quality and customer service. Cooper Power Systems’ “easy to do business” approach has made us the supplier of choice. Although our manufacturing specialties lie in line construction materials, our facility has the capacity and the capabilities to satisfy a wide range of metal fabrication needs, including customized hardware requirements and OEM components. The following pages include a list of just some of our capabilities and is not intended to be all encompassing. 1 January 2001 • Supersedes 11/97 • ©2001 Cooper Power Systems, Inc. East Stroudsburg Facility Introduction/Capabilities ENGINEERING/TOOLING Cooper Power Systems takes pride in delivering a reliable quality product to our customers in a short amount of time. Using the latest computer aided engineering equipment and state of the art in-house tool department capable of producing virtually all tooling necessary to meet your requirements, our engineering department will work closely with you to assure an expeditious product development. WIRE-DRAW Our wire-draw line has the capability to convert hot-rolled coiled stock to finished rod sizes up to 5/8" diameter, which includes cleaning, straightening and cutting to length, from 6" to 8' long with precision of up to + or - .0005 diameter. FORGING Hot & cold forging is available depending on economy and performance requirements. Hot forging involves heating the metal beyond its malleable point and forging the material in a press or hammer. If precise dimensional control is required, secondary machining is available. Cold forging involves shaping metal by plastic deformation of the material beyond its yield point using very high pressure. Our capabilities include eight upsetters that can upset up to 1" in diameter and up to 9" long, on steel rods up to 10' long, in round or square shapes, with deformations up to 16 times the diameter (depending on the material size). We have experience in working with ferrous materials from low carbon range through ANSI 1045 and many alloy grades. 2 January 2001 • Supersedes 11/97 • ©2001 Cooper Power Systems, Inc. East Stroudsburg Facility Introduction/Capabilities STAMPING Our facility has extensive experience in the stamping of most of the ductile materials, including steel, aluminum and brass. Our twenty-one presses with capacities from 75 ton to 400 ton are capable of handling material up to .5" thick, 17" wide and 96" long. Deep drawing up to 7" in depth is possible on some materials. THREADING Our ability to roll or cut threads allows the flexibility necessary in meeting our customer’s requirements. Our six roll thread and two cut thread machines are capable of forming any standard thread to class 1, 2 or 3 tolerances. Rolled threads can be formed on material ranging from 1/2" to 7/8" in diameter and cut threads from 1/2" to 1 1/2". External threads can be rolled or cut up to 6" long, with continuous threads up to 60". Internal threads can be cut up to a depth of 3". GALVANIZING Galvanizing protects steel from corrosive attack acting as a shield between the steel and the atmosphere. Zinc’s higher electrochemical properties allows it to act as a galvanic protector, sacrificing itself in the presence of corrosive elements and continuing to protect even when moderate size areas of bare steel have been exposed. Our facility is equipped with two hot-dip galvanizing kettles 20' long and 2.5' wide by 6' deep. These lines are complete with pre-cleaning pickling tanks for appropriate part preparation, high speed spinning equipment for zinc coating uniformity and quench tanks to assure proper hardness. A unique water purification and acid recovery system enables us to provide hot-dip galvanizing while reducing our waste and maintaining our responsibility to the environment. 3 January 2001 • Supersedes 11/97 • ©2001 Cooper Power Systems, Inc. East Stroudsburg Facility Introduction/Capabilities QUALITY ASSURANCE/TESTING An established quality assurance program has been in place and adhered to for years.
