In the World of Custom Wire Forming, Features Matter!
Customization in the wire-forming world matters! For example, a part for the gear shift on a lawnmower might require two drilled holes and 3 bends while a gear shift for a semi-truck requires 4 drilled holes and 2 flats. Not all parts are the same even though they have a similar function. So functionality requires customization so that all parts come together to create a whole product like a lawnmower, truck, or even a chair.
Common Wire Forming Features
WireTech offers several different options for custom wire forms including:
- Free Flow Flat
- Pierced Holes
- Drilled Holes
- Heads & Collars
Most engineers or buyers in the manufacturing industry understand the differences between the different customization options. The most well-known customization option for non-engineers or buyers would be “threads” which is the spiraling groves you would see around a common household screw.
