Class code 3270 is used for employees that work in an eyelet manufacturing facility. While eyelets are the primary product covered in this classification, other similar things may be produced as well. Examples include grommets, snap fasteners, hooks and eyes, staples, straight pins, safety pins, tacks, and nails. Work will likely be done using automatic clips and wire forming machines, but may also include press work for some employees. The raw materials used in this industry will usually be light gauge sheet strip or reels of drawn wire that will be received in from others and then fed into machinery, through an automatic process. Once the materials have been through this step, they will then move on to new machinery for any piercing, trimming, plating, annealing, and deburring that needs to be done.

In addition to the above mentioned products and processes, this class code also may include those that manufacture safety razors by metal stamping, plating, and finishing and the accompanying safety razor blades. In this case, rolls of ribbon steel, received from others, will be run through a self-fed punch press to be blanked out, snapped to length in a breaking machine, then heat-treated, blued, ground, cleaned, stripped, and packed. Nearly all work of this sort will be done by automatic machines.
