Wire form machines are designed to mass-produce wire forms for all types of applications. From electronics to automotive applications, however, it is not uncommon for specific applications to require a custom wire form to meet specifications. It is important to find a wire form supplier that can accommodate those types of custom wire forming needs.
What to Look for in a Supplier
When looking for a supplier there are a couple of things that you should look for so you can be assured they will meet your wire forming needs. First, any supplier you consider should meet applicable industry standards. Common standards include those from ISO, ANSI, ASME, MIL-SPEC, SAE, and other organizations.
Any supplier you consider should also be able to meet your production volume specifications. This is especially important if you need a short production run or have large (or very small) volume requirements.
Often the best way to make sure a supplier meets your needs is to compare them to the supplier’s past projects. Good suppliers should be able to provide you with a portfolio of their work or examples of past projects that are similar in scope to your project.
Finding a Partner in Design
A supplier with experience is also ideal for custom wire forming because they will have the experience to help walk you through the design process.
Working with experienced engineers can help you avoid common mistakes, anticipate problems before they occur, and can even help you design a part that may work in more than one application or use.
Designing a part for manufacturability, in fact, can help make the custom wire forming process more cost-effective and productive.
