Slugs are precision, cold-formed, semi-finished parts that enable customers to reduce costs through material savings, shorter manufacturing times, prolonged tool life and less logistical costs.   The slug configurations are carefully designed for optimal shape, then annealed and coated ready for the next manufacturing process.  


For especially critical parts a PAQ (Perfect Assurance Quality) eddy current system is applied to guarantee that no parts have a surface defect deeper than 0.07mm (0.003”) or length longer than 5mm (0.197”)
