.040 300 series wire form used in the firearms industry

Wire forms come in endless varieties of shapes, sizes, and materials. Several materials used to manufacture wire forms include; high carbon spring steel, phosphor-bronze, brass, beryllium-copper, stainless steel, nickel-silver, high-nickel specialty alloys, and non-tempered wire. Wire forming companies such as Katy Spring can bend wire into fabricated shapes such as clips, pins, springs, rings, hooks, and wire racks to name a few.

Several methods to manufacture wire forms are used depending on the size of the part and quantity run. Secondary operations, bending, drilling, tapping, machining, welding, heat treating, grinding are used for short-run quantities. Fourslide, multislide, stamping, and progressive die operations are used for long-runs (usually 20,000 + pcs.), and require special tooling. Many times wire forms are fabricated and welded into assemblies such as baskets or other material handling components.

Katy Spring can assist customers with the sometimes complicated designs and suggest cost-saving measures pertaining to the manufacturing of wire forms.
