Wisconsin Steel & Tube has been a provider of steel tubing and bar products since 1952. Over the last few years, they have made a strong effort to increase their value-added capabilities to better serve their key customers and to continue to grow their business. Along with their sister company WST Fab, they have made significant investment in fabrication equipment starting with their first tube laser and AMOB eMOB150 in 2018 and have now added additional tube laser capacity, large format laser and brake capabilities, robotic welding, and most recently their AMOB eMOB80. They serve customers in a number of industries including agricultural, lawn and garden, construction, power generation, power sports, and of course their steel distribution job shop customers.
After outsourcing a bent part for close to 10 years, they finally took the plunge and purchased the eMOB150. The part was a very challenging part and they had a number of vendors “no quote” it over time and so they knew they needed a partner that they could trust and a machine that was capable and reliable to produce this part, as it is a high volume part for one of their very key customers and they couldn’t afford to make a mistake on this investment.
