Custom Wire Forming
A variety of components can be manufactured using our custom medical wire forming process. These types of wire forms are used as stand-alone medical device components or as parts in larger assemblies. Clips, rings, links and other wire forming parts are combined with custom wire forming to produce the customer medical device requested. Additionally, our custom wire forming can be done with an array of metals or alloys. In a custom wire forming process our team can also make fine and microfine wires in various shapes such as round, flat, square or any custom designed shape.
Custom Wire technologies is specialized in custom wire forms made out of precision wires, fine wires, round wires and flat wires. Our highly automated CNC forming equipment is optimized for wire .032″ and smaller but don’t hesitate to reach out with larger diameter wire forming projects. Our standard wire forming process works by feeding wire off a spool into a CNC wire bending machine with a cut off. This enables us to provide competitive pricing and short lead times. In addition to our high volume wire forming machinery we are able to set up fixtures, hand jigs and presses to achieve a variety of complex shapes using secondary processes. We can manufacture small prototype orders for researchers up to large production orders for OEMs.
Contract Wire Forming
Custom Wire technologies is a contract manufacturer serving OEMs and researchers, mainly in the medical device industry. We do not stock any off the shelf wire forms. We do however stock a large amount of raw wire in order to offer quick turnaround for your next project. We understand the high-quality needs of the medical industry and strive for best in class production. We have over 20 years of experience in wire forming concepts and aim to provide assistance in best-helping customers carry out complex designs. Typically we use medical grade stainless steel and nitinol materials for forming products but we have used a variety of materials in stock to create products.
Medical Quality Standards
Custom Wire technologies specializes in forming small custom wire components for the medical device industry. Because we are specialized in forming wires for medical devices we have high-quality standards (ISO 13485, ISO 9001), we are able to achieve precision tolerances, and we able to achieve a wide range of complex designs. In addition to the strict ISO standards, we have worked with a variety of OEM customers who audited our factory and process.
Custom Wire Bending
The process of forming wire typically involves some form of custom wire bending. We have multiple processes set up to bend and form wires. These processes can be as simple as manual jigs and fixtures or as complex as cnc wire bending machinery. No matter how we bend your custom designed wires, we have state of the art co-ordinate measuring systems to ensure that we adhere to your tolerance and specifications. Our highly trained operators treat each job with high quality standards in mind.
