Component Manufacturing: High-Precision Hardened Steel Strip

Burton, the world’s premier manufacturer of snowboards and gear, formerly used three vendors to produce a shaped steel strip – a critical board performance component. Lead times were longer than ideal, and there were interim transports, large inventories – and high unit costs.

Profiles developed a program to produce the entire hardened steel strip in-house. Integrating several wire processing techniques into a single production line, multiple product sizes could be fabricated from a single inventory item by making small adjustments in equipment set-up. A special finishing line was developed and built which combined stamping, heat treating and cut-off operations to further reduce handling and inventory.

With improved quality, shortened lead times and reduced cost, Burton was able to respond to market demands with a level of speed and agility equal to their renowned product.
