Considerations When Manufacturing Wire Baskets

There are several factors to consider when choosing wire baskets such as below:

Manufacturing Contents

Damaging chemicals are common constituents in many parts of finishing processes. The materials used in wire baskets should be better able to withstand frequent and prolonged exposure to all types of chemicals used in finishing parts.

Size, Weight and Shape of Items

Some of the factors which come prior to buying wire baskets are weight and the physical sizes of the items which the basket will carry. The basket must be strong enough so that it can fit and hold the parts.

Surface Condition Requirements for Items

The condition or appearance of the surface for held items must be considered as well as the rigidity of the surface of the held items. Parts which require no scratches or abrasions should be held in a different manner than items where small surface scratching or abrasion might not matter greatly.

Storage Environment

This is a commonly overlooked factor. A washing basket may be ruined by continually exposing it to chemicals or air contaminants. Knowing the contents of air in the factory or storage area where the wire basket will be used may help optimize the period of use of the basket.

Processing Temperature and Exposure Time

Several specialized coats and alloys react in different ways when they are exposed to high temperatures. Many steel alloys may lose tensile strength at extreme temperatures, or become brittle in low temperatures. Several coatings may be damaged by extended exposure to extreme temperatures.

Types of Wire Baskets

There are several types of wire baskets, serving different uses. Below are some of the common types of wire baskets:

Plain Wire Basket

Plain wire baskets are usually used in kitchens because they are simple in handling and use. They are made from simple steel wires woven to form a rigid rectangular-shaped basket. They are available in a number of shapes and sizes.
