Another Robot? Good Idea!

Worcester MA – September 10, 2008

Wirefab Inc. has purchased yet another robot. The Nachi SC15F is a 6-axis mig-welding robot with a 76” reach, a 360° platform, 400- amp power supply and the capacity of up to 4 workstations.

The Nachi SC15F will now keep company with three 5-axis Daihen OTC mig welding robots as well as Clifford Versawelders, Millermatic migwelders and Schlatter posiwelders already in operation at Wirefab’s 80,000 square foot manufacturing facility.

The Nachi SC15F will allow Wirefab more reach and flexibility in welding. It will accommodate larger and more complex wire fabrication, faster and easier than was previously possible.

Wirefab inc. is a leading, custom manufacturer of wire, tube and sheet metal fabrication. Their capabilities encompass state-of-the-art technology to straighten, mig & tig weld, bead, coin, stamp, swage, punch, thread, drill and mill. Wirefab’s wire products include; bakeries, OEMs, commercial restaurants and retail businesses as well as the science, military, medical, electronics and computer industries.

Remembrance of our Founder and CEO

Worcester, MA – September 1, 2008


It is with great sadness that Wirefab Inc of Worcester MA announces the passing of our founder and CEO, Asbed “Ozzie” Zakarian. Mr. Z, as his employees affectionately knew him, established Wirefab in 1955. With a sound conservative fiscal approach to business and unique foresight ability, Ozzie nurtured the growth of Wirefab from its meager beginning to an industry leader of wire products and manufacturing services. He led by example. There was always a sense of urgency, a demand for excellence and a healthy discontent with the way things were. His booming voice, his hearty laughter and his charming personality will be missed by all who knew him.

Thanks to Mr. Z, Wirefab is now an ESOP company rich in manufacturing technology and financially sound to confront the new challenges of the times. With recent sizable investments Wirefab has state of the art capabilities in wire forming, and automated resistance welding as well as robotic tig and mig welding. Wirefab’s produces wire products for numerous industries including bakeries, OEMs, commercial restaurants and retail businesses as well as the science, military, medical, electronics and computer industries.

Pressed Into Service

Worcester, MA – August 1, 2008

Wirefab Inc. has recently added a J&L OBI (open back inclinable) 100-ton press to their wire manipulating machinery.

The J&L OBI 100-ton press gives Wirefab the ability to bend, swage, stamp, punch and cut wire up to ½ inch or bar stock up to 1 inch. It offers the advantage of automatic feed and stamping of coiled strip steel and has a 2-foot by 3-foot bed.

The J&L OBI 100-ton press will allow Wirefab to produce larger products and produce them faster than previously done with their 40-ton press.
