Finding a manufacturer that offers both the original manufacturing process and any secondary processes is a great way to improve your product while cutting down on the cost.
There are a wide range of forming processes available for wire form parts, some common processes you may be familiar with include: coil making, metal stamping, welding, and roll forming. The coil making process is commonly utilized to manufacture springs as it involves wrapping a wire around a metal blank which then forms a coil.
Roll forming on the other hand typically creates flat, shaped and round wire parts through the use of calendars and die punches that are able to shape the wire into the desired shape. One major process that you may not have thought of when it comes to wire form parts is the metal stamping process.
This process is used to manipulate wires in a precise fashion and to create different wire parts and products to customers’ exact specifications. While there are a lot of different processes and types of wire forms out there, some are more common than others.
For example, wire shelving is one of the most common wire form product made, as they are relatively simple to manufacture and offer a high value product at the end of the process.
Whatever your needs may be, seek out an experienced wire form parts manufacturer to determine what is best for your unique application. They will be able to assist you in deciding on the best materials, design, and processes to use for your wire form parts.
