Developing Projects

Introducing Slat Jackets!

Posted September 8, 2022

Slat Jackets are wooden slats that protect and increase the service life of the metal slats on water-based plasma tables, thereby reducing downtime and increasing productivity.  

As a major manufacturer of hardwood profiled products, we were approached a few years ago by a local company with a conceptual idea to use wood as a protectant for plasma cutting table slats. Introducing Slat Jackets! This consumable product will increase efficiency and uniformity in your cuts and eliminate product damage from scratch, scrap, or part-to-slat bonding. Water table maintenance will be easier due to less dross and slag, and cuts will be more accurate.  

Hardwood Solutions is able to produce Slat Jackets on a large scale quickly and with dimensional precision. They are currently offered in red oak and packaged in quantities of 500 pieces at 48” long for stable palletization and shipping. We understand that there are variables associated with different manufactures. Our dynamic engineering, design and processing associates can customize the product and its quantities and lengths to meet your specific equipment needs.  

Since Slat Jackets are a new product for us, we highly value your input in order to improve development and provide product testing.  

We eagerly await your feedback regarding your specific needs and any questions or concerns you may have!

Giving Back!

Assisting our community in difficult times!

Throughout our 20+ year history, Hardwood Solutions has aimed to be an active part of our community, whether it is donating a car to the demo derby at the fair, sponsoring an athletic team, or helping an employee in need.

This fall, we have begun a pilot program to donate a Glowforge laser cutting machine to the technology department at some area high schools. So far, the response has been positive and we are looking forward to many more opportunities!
