May 17, 2016 – SYNCFAB hosted it’s inaugural event with the San Leandro Chamber of Commerce in partnership with the City of San Leandro & San Francisco Mayor’s Office of Innovation STIR program. Bay Area manufacturing supply chain professionals along with members of the general public and even the FBI!!! enjoyed a private guided tour by the CEO of Northern California’s largest spring and metal stamping factory.
Since 1969, Scandic has been a leader in coil springs, fourslide stampings, precision progressive stampings, and CNC wireforming.
Scandic is the largest spring and stamping company in Northern California whose team includes multiple engineers, tool and die makers, and veteran technicians who understand all spring materials.
The kinds of parts Scandic makes for thier customers include battery contacts, EMI shielding, ESD contacts, spring clips, latches and retainers, and belleville washers.
They have particular expertise in working with spring materials such as beryllium copper, which are heat-treated after forming to attain their highest spring temper.
Scandic has expanded its physical plant to add a new building for presses, and has expanded its equipment:
Stamping up to 24 inches wide with a 220-ton press. Scandic has also installed a new 165 ton servo punch press, offering a new way to stamp metal. This is the first servo press available for contract stamping in Northern California. Our larger presses are all straight side, double crank with precision servo feeds and tonnage monitors. This technology allows us to use carbide tooling when needed.
Thier Cleaning Solutions include automatic conveyor cleaning line, ultrasonic cleaning, and clean room packaging.
Many Thanks to Scandic Springs, the City of San Leandro, the San Leandro Chamber of Commerce for this special arrangement and to all who were able to participate! The tour gave a whole new level of appreciation for metal stamping and springs! Photos are not typically allowed inside private facilities so if you want to see for yourself be sure to sign up for our next tour! Who knows where our next stop may take us as we delve further into the landscape of modern American manufacturing in the San Francisco STIR Program!
