Shaped wire (usually spring steel) is used to create wire forms, which have various uses and are often seen in products that we use every day. Some examples include lightbulb filaments, musical instruments, clocks, medical trays, pins, pegs, and rivets.
Shaped wire is finished and then bent or formed using external pressure generally by using four slide technology or a punch press. Possible configuration opportunities are endless, allowing for multiple customization options, which allows this product to be quite diverse in its use cases.
Custom wire forms are manufactured in a variety of shapes to perform specific functions. There are a variety of customizations that can be performed with wire forms, so we will work with you to determine the best material, sizing, and manufacturing process to suit your needs.
