Sko-Die, Inc., Morton Grove, IL, a manufacturer of custom steel laminations and heavy-gauge metal stampings, has acquired the fineblanking and metal-stamping business of Harig Manufacturing Corp. Harig makes precision parts for the automotive, appliance, power-tool, aerospace and controls industries.
Harig’s fineblanking and stamping operations have been incorporated into the Sko-Die Morton Grove facility, with recently installed equipment including four Feintool fineblanking presses (two 160-ton and two 250-ton). These presses can run parts from 0.060 to 0.375 in. thick, circular parts to 5 in. OD and straight parts to 8 in. long. Two deburring systems also have been moved into the facility, and two of Harig’s experienced operators have joined the Sko-Die staff.
