Patented Wire – Patented Music Wire

Patented Wire

Patented Wire is a standard grade music wire that has been conditioned for spring and wire rope applications where strength and high tensile are needed.  Patenting is a heat treatment process that improves the durability and strength of the wire.  The process involves an in-line heat treatment at 970 degrees Fahrenheit and then cooled in a variety of mediums including air and lead.  The resulting wire has a fine pearlite structure with little or no separation of the ferrite (iron).

All of Gibbs music wire under .055” diameter is patented.  Size above .056” are available upon request.

Gibbs Is LEAN

Gibbs Uses LEAN for Continuous Improvement

Lean.org describes their philosophy as:  “A lean organization understands customer value and focuses its key processes to continuously increase it. The ultimate goal is to provide perfect value to the customer through a perfect value creation process that has zero waste.

To accomplish this, lean thinking changes the focus of management from optimizing separate technologies, assets, and vertical departments to optimizing the flow of products and services through entire value streams that flow horizontally across technologies, assets, and departments to customers.

Eliminating waste along entire value streams, instead of at isolated points, creates processes that need less human effort, less space, less capital, and less time to make products and services at far less costs and with much fewer defects, compared with traditional business systems. Companies are able to respond to changing customer desires with high variety, high quality, low cost, and with very fast throughput times. Also, information management becomes much simpler and more accurate.”

Gibbs uses LEAN practices as a tool for continual improvement.  It’s our goal to provide world-class products and processes to our valued customers.  For more information visit our Quality Page
