Capital Steel & Wire located in Lansing, MI is a leading supplier and distributor of hot rolled steel wire, cold finished long products, and steel bars. When they needed a tool to automatically chamfer one end of bar stock for an automotive supplier they turned to Manufacturing Solutions, Inc. of Beaumont, TX for the answer. Capital Steel purchased a C3A ChamferMate to automatically chamfer 0.9224" diameter 5140 grade bar stock for their automotive customer.

Capital Steel takes raw steel and draws it into a bar and the uses the ChamferMate to custom process the end of the bar.  "We needed a robust, fast, and reliable automated solution and that is what we got from MSI" says Fred Render, Purchasing Manager.  "We have been impressed with MSI and the whole process from the initial sales call to the installation and support has been wonderful.  We flew to TX for a run off and then the engineering team from MSI came to MI for two days to install and level the machine, train our team, and make sure we were running production quantities.  Their responsiveness is impressive and we can always count on them to answer any questions we have promptly and completely."
