Looking for High Quality Wire Forms?
Wire forms are pieces of wire that are given a certain shape in order to fit a particular industrial need. These shapes can include everything from simple rings to springs, beams and cantilever designs. You also have wire form manufacturers who specialise in creating custom designs using 3D technology. This technology comes into play when creating very complex shapes. Wire forms manufacturers generally create several 2D shapes and then weld them together in order to achieve the desired result. With 3D technology, this operation is streamlined, and more accurate.
Basically, wire forms can be either stock made or custom made. Stock wireforms are your run of the mill, commonly used components built to a certain standard of quality. When buying these stock parts, companies know what to expect. For example, if you own a facility that uses heat treatment equipment, you can rest assured that any stock wire form you buy for the machines will be made from heat resistant materials. This is the main advantage of buying stock wire. You will always know the specifications of the particular wire that you’re purchasing. Stock wire is also less expensive.
Custom wire forms on the other hand are built to fit your instructions. This means that you will have to take into account all of the necessary details relating to the wire’s uses before placing an order. Stock wire is usually paired with a piece of equipment, making it match the exact specifications of that equipment, while custom wire uses specialised inserts, design features and extra wires in order to protect your equipment and provide that extra layer of durability.
