How Does Wire Forming Work?

By in

Wire forming has completely revolutionized the manufacturing industry. The possibilities are endless. Suppliers with wire forming machinery can create 2D and 3D forms to effectively meet their customers’ needs. Manufacturers with 3D capabilities stand out from the competition by creating cost-effective, efficient and precise wire forms that are virtually unmatched in the market. Those with 2D capabilities are often limited in the services they can offer and the designs they can create.

How the 3D Machine Works

Wire forming machines are computerized and highly automated. The innovative technology used in the machines help suppliers to not only create extremely complex wire forms with precision, but also do so in less time and for a lower cost than was possible in the past with 2D traditional processes. It’s all done in one simple operation and highly trained and experienced experts set up the machine and monitor the wire forming process to ensure uniformity and accuracy. All the customer has to do is bring in a fully dimensioned sketch, sample, drawing, or idea to get the process underway.

You can feed in various sizes of wire in a multitude of different types of wire. The types can range from chrome silicon, oil-tempered wire, and hard-drawn MB to music wire, Inconel, and stainless steel—and any other material that suits your needs. Once fed into the machine, the wire can be bent in any form and at any desired angle that you need—with exact precision. With this type of 3D wire forming, you never need to settle based on your manufacturer’s capabilities. You’ll always get exactly what you need.

2D Wire Forming of the Past

In the past, complex wire forms had to be made with 2D technology. Often, the design had to be simplified in order to meet the manufacturer’s requirements and ensure that it could be created properly. Many manufacturers would turn away customers because they didn’t have the right machinery to handle the complexity of the job. And those without 3D capabilities still do.

Those suppliers who did try to make the design come to life often had to spend a lot of additional time on multiple operations like welding, heading, bending, chamfering, piercing, and punching and make the component in several pieces.

With so many extra steps, it’s easier to make errors that mess up the entire design during the wire forming manufacturing process. Not to mention, it increases lead times significantly and also costs customers more money.

No Design Is Too Complex

If you’re looking for complex wire forms or custom designs, look no further. Choose a manufacturer that has 3D capabilities and state-of-the-art wire forming machinery to get the job done right. You’ll never have to simplify your design to suit the machine. The possibilities are only limited by your imagination. A project that used to be seen as too difficult or complicated to pull off is now quick and easy to create.

3D Capabilities Set Manufacturers Apart from the Rest

Although you may think all wire form manufacturers are the same, the technology they use and the machinery they own to create wire forms can make a big difference. Those with 3D capabilities can offer superior services by effectively meeting your needs, regardless of the complexity of your custom wire form design or the size of your order. You get consistent results—accuracy and precision every time. You’ll never have to settle for less, you’ll save money, and you’ll have your shipment faster than ever before. Best of all, you can make your unique design come to life.
