Wire Forms

Our wire form and secondary op department can produce your most complex parts in house. Our flexible tooling keeps costs down to a minimum on short and medium runs. Wire size ranges from 0.50 mm (0.020") to 10 mm (.393").

Frequently our wire forms are used as an aid to the production process in manufacturing:

Holding a window ajar whilst the whole unit is painted.

Part of tool kit to facilitate the removal of a holding pin in an engine which is in a hard to reach spot, unless you take the entire engine out of the vehicle.

Hook shapes to enable components to be spray painted, powder coated or plated.
