MODERNIZED SHEET METAL MARKING

The Pen Tool Products Group Image

Within production processes, it's often necessary to mark sections of the metal sheet for a variety of reasons. Batch numbers, arrows, fold sequences and even instructions for secondary operations require specific markings. Makeshift solutions and half-finished ideas have prevailed as go-to methods for sheet metal marking. Introducing The Pen tool: Wilson Tool International’s solution for in-machine sheet metal marking.

Available for thick turret (A-station) and TRUMPF-style machines, The Pen tool is refillable and comes equipped with a mechanical lid, so it’s always ready to go. Unlike other sheet metal marking systems, The Pen tool is armed with an automatic airtight mechanism, eliminating the need to replace a lid after each use.

GET TO KNOW WILSON TOOL INTERNATIONAL
SEAN GOTTLIEB, ASISTANT BUL – SHIPPING/WAREHOUSE

Sean Gottlieb Headshot

In the two and a half years he’s been with Wilson Tool International, Sean Gottlieb has left quite an impression. From earning himself a promotion, to being nominated President of the Wilson Tool bowling League two years running, Sean has proven to be a natural fit.

“Right when I started, I joined…I thought it would be a good way to meet people.”

Sean quickly made a name for himself in the shipping department before moving out to the punch value stream. After a year of grinding, Sean was offered a leadership role back in shipping, the role he currently holds.

Something that Sean has found unique about working at Wilson Tool is the Star Idea Program. As part of the program, employees can submit an idea to their business unit leader, with the goal of making operations safer and more efficient. “Just little things that help operations move along better…those ideas are implemented to our current operations and at the end of the year we can see how effective those ideas were.”

Outside of work and his accomplished bowling career, Sean is an active volunteer with The Giving Circle, a group that aims to help fellow colleagues facing a time of need. “It’s an amazing program and the first thing I noticed when I started here that really blew me away about this company.” Sean and his wife Ashley are expecting their first child, a boy, in early March.
