Magic Rack/Production Plus can incorporate masking solutions into its racking products, designing a hook that can both hang and mask a part. This type of hook design eliminates the need for disposable caps or plugs, and enables the hook to be reused, providing a cost savings. When stainless steel material is used, hooks also can be placed in a burn-off oven.

Hooks can be designed to fit into the company’s racking systems or can be made to fit other hanging systems.
