    For that kind of quantity, there are firms that specialise in manufacturing wire hooks for industrial coating processing. These are american, but they show the range of available stuff. You may find a snap or spring hook that would be quicker and re-usable.

    I will get some photos together tomorrow to show you what I have to do. If I canít find the loops then I will have to use hooks - less than ideal as they will leave a mark on the ring we are coating. Anyway, until tomorrow.

    The loops will be used to allow an item to be heated up to around 350C (so too hot for lead seals) and then hooked out of the oven and dipped into a bed of plastic powder which has air flowing through it (known as fluidising as the powder acts like a fluid) so covering the item. The wire loop and item are then put onto a cooling rack and when they have cooled the wire is snipped off. I donít have the luxury of time on this process as I may have 50,000 to do each month.....

    Anyway the You Tube video below shows the general principle except they are using a hook.
