Class Code: 3257

Per NCCI's Scopes Code Description:

Code 3257 applies to employers that manufacture wire goods which are not otherwise classified in the Basic Manual. As indicated by Code 3257’s phraseology, a division of payroll is permitted between wire goods manufacturing and wire drawing operations.

Operations classified to Code 3257 may use soldering and welding equipment, automatic weaving or spiral machines, and punch presses as well as traditional machine shop equipment. However, the processes included in Code 3257 are substantially automatic and usually involve very few assembly operations. Various coating materials may be applied to the completed wire products.

Code 3257 includes the manufacture of products such as, but not limited to, wire springs, light gauge poultry fencing, heavier gauge cattle fencing, chain link fencing, wire conveyor belts, filter screens used in mills to process flour and grain, wire cages, trays, soap dishes and coat hangers.

Certain Code 3257 operations are designated as “not otherwise classified” (NOC). These NOC operations apply to an employer only when no other classification more specifically describes the employer’s operations. The following is a representative list of operations somewhat related in nature to Code 3257 operations that are not assigned to Code 3257.
