Hydrographics

Jun 08, 2016

In addition to a few dozen standard colors used in our powder coat line, we also now are offering 70 different patterns for hydrographic finishes.  Hydrographic finishes include a base coat, a primer coat, the hydrographic image film, and a sealer coat.  The hydrographic and powder coat finishes give us a wide array of finish options for our fabrication customers. Our 4' x 8' tanks will accomodate most tubular and plate welded fabrications that we make in-house.  Our powder coat paint line has a 24" x 24" x 96" opening and will accomodate most welded linkages, many fabricated ladders, guard rails, steps, grab handles, tubular supports and tubular braces.

Heavy Duty Cables

Dec 14, 2014

Our push-pull cable product line continues to grow. Our new high efficiency cables are competitively priced and readily available in all volumes.  Midwest Control Products Corp builds cables for end users, the aftermarket, small OEM's and large OEM's. We also sell complete systems for building your own custom cables.


PUSH PULL CABLES

Nov 14, 2014

Midwest Control Products Corp continues to develop and expand our push-pull cable manufacturing business. Whether you are looking for 1 cable, or 1,000 cables, we have a fast and competitive system to provide you with a high quality, competitive cable.  In the near future we will also be introducing a new, high-performance series of cables to our manufacturing line up that features even tighter bend radii and a wrapped conduit. Feel free to contact us for more details.


WELDED & POWDER COATED FABRICATIONS

Aug 06, 2014

One of our great niches is welded and powder coated fabrications. If a part's primary component is bar or tubing, and that in turn is welded to plate, flat bar, other wireforms, or other tube fabrications, and then the entire assembly is powder coated, we are very competitive in the 250 to 5000 piece production run quantities.  Other added operations such as threading, drilling, swaging, press forming, cnc bending, bearing sizing (ie: pressing in bronze bushings), laser etching, all add to our competitiveness.


1,200,000 Heims

Jun 06, 2014

We've added a few new spherical rod end bearings to our product line up. One of the ones we added today is a M6 x 1.00 male bronze raced, zerk fitted, M6 DIN Metric rod end, our DBM-6Z.  Thus, as of today, we have 1,200,000 spherical rod end bearings in stock. We offer 1,734 different rod end configurations and sizes. Of those 1,734 sku's, 857 of them are in stock.


Plasma and Poly

May 27, 2014

We've added some new manufacturing capabilities recently, including a plasma cutter and a polyurethane injection molding machine.  The plasma cutter will be used to help increase our tubular door, bumper and light bar fabricating capabilities (we purchased a tube positioner for the plasma). Our goal in beginning to mold polyurethane is to support our sway bar manufacturing capabilities.  Added with our existing capabilities of cnc tube bending, robotic welding, and powder coating, we are looking forward to some fun new projects.
