Wire Products

Wire products are created when wire is bent, stamped, or fabricated into various shapes and sizes to produce specific shapes and sizes. These products are used to hold the everyday, small and big things that consumers need. Our world has come to depend heavily on wire products. For example, they are found in retail businesses for wire shelving or for containers used in storage and shipping industries. Wire racks, clips, pins, springs, hooks, rings, shelves and baskets are common in a variety of industries. Meanwhile, wire guards and screens are commonly used as a way of improving workplace safety.

Usually, providers of wire products, specialties, forms, special shapes and forming services provide engineering and design direction, coil or spring making, tool making, fine blanking, wire forming, deep drawing, and four-slide or multi-slide stamping. These suppliers may also provide prototype or short-run services, progressive dies, assembly services, high-volume production, and any extra specialty packaging.

Design of Wire Products

While design or engineering help might include ideas of the trade, manufacturing, engineering costs, methods and material viewpoints, the supplier of wire products could also help in redesigning, improving, re-evaluating, or modernizing the line of prevailing products to improve performance or reduce production costs. Different tools may be used at various stages of the design and fabrication of these products. Meanwhile, special techniques such as fine blanking (the process where wire material is precisely cut) may be employed.

Manufacture of Wire Products

To make wire, stock material is forced or drawn through an array of increasingly small dies which shape the material to a pre-set diameter. These long, thin threads of metal have an oval, round, or shaped cross section as required. Roll forming (or coil making) is the next stage in the procedure where stock metal pieces are then bent, straightened, split or otherwise treated. Secondary treatments like annealing, coating, and painting increase the adaptability of wire products even further. It is imperative to be sure that wire forms are strengthened and finished in a way that will fit the environment where they will be applied.

Coiling and wire forming are two more processes available in making wire products. Coiling includes winding wires into either spirals or rings. Wire forming is a method where wire is stamped into fabricated forms such as springs, clips, hooks, snaps etc. Suppliers of wire products process several materials, including ferrous metals, non-ferrous metals, exotic alloys and metals, precious metals, and plastic. Wire-forming services may also include secondary processes, such as tapping or drilling, CNC machining, EDM cutting, grinding, water or abrasive-jet cutting, or stress relieving (heat treating), before fabricating the final product.

Materials Used in the Manufacture of Wire Products

Stainless steel, brass, steel, iron, tungsten copper, titanium, aluminum, platinum, nickel, or virtually any kind of metal can be utilized in the production of wire. Plastic wire is also used, though less common and, most times, less applicable. It is essential to consider the characteristics of any given material with regards to the use and environment it will be applied. Ductility, malleability, thermal and electrical conductivity, impact and tensile strength, dimensions, magnetism and corrosion resistance must all be examined.

The processing methods used on a wire form must also be of concern since they will impact the above-mentioned characteristics as well as the final wire product.

Application of Wire Products

Electronics, music, plumbing, lighting, parts manufacture, material handling, medical, food processing, agricultural, automotive, aerospace, and machining, are just a few industries that use wire forms in daily operations. The reputation of such parts can be credited to their light weight and excellent airflow. Lightweight and easily manufactured, these wire products also increase accessibility and air circulation. Wire parts producers and distributors usually offer these beneficial products in stock or standard fabrications.

wire bending products

Because their applications may differ, many wire-products providers offer custom-made wire machining as well. The capacity for wire product production keeps on expanding as technology enables the creation of gradually smaller and more multifaceted wire apparatus. In addition to an ever-growing number of uses, the variety of materials which may be used in the manufacture and assemblage of wire products has also been upgraded. Ferrous, non-ferrous and various precious metals are frequently used today in the manufacture of wire workings.
