Class Code: 3119
Per NCCI's Scopes Code Description:
Code 3119 is applied to insureds engaged in the manufacture of needles. Steel wire, received from others, is formed into the required shapes on power presses. Swaging machines reduce the diameter at the points and final forming is done on special machines by milling, grooving, eye making and tapering. At this point the needles are heat-treated to obtain the required hardness and straightened by hand or hammers. Burrs are then removed and the needles are polished in tumblers. This classification also applies to insureds engaged in the manufacture of pen points, or pen nibs, some being the old-style separate nib for use with a penholder and others being pen nibs sold to fountain pen manufacturers.
