Wire forms is a term that incorporates many shapes, textures and dimensions. The forms are engineered in two or three dimensions and commonly generated from wire and sometimes from tube. Typically, the raw stock for wire forms is fed off a coil that can weigh as much 5,000 pounds (2,300 kg) or as little as five pounds (2.3 kg). In some cases, the raw material commences production in blank forms that are fed from a hopper. Read more about wire forming

Wire forming may be defined as any length of wire that has had some force applied to it that changes the shape of the wire. Wire can be round, flat, hexagonal, square, oval, triangular, elliptical, or D-shaped, just to name a few. Wire can be made of low-carbon steel, medium- carbon and high-carbon steel. It can also be made of stainless, aluminum, copper, brass and an assortment of alloyed materials. Read more about wire forming

Custom wire forming is a Marlin Steel Wire Products’ specialty. We design and engineer custom wire products in stainless, galvanized, and plain steel. We make thousands of custom wire forms each week.

Typically, customers submit us a part (in PDF format, by fax, or even as an actual sample) and ask us to design a wire form. Requirements like the optimal footprint of the wire form is helpful to know. Issues that impact our design include whether the wire form will be exposed to chemicals or high temperature.

With these specifications, Marlin submits a quote. Upon receipt of a purchase order, Marlin generates precise AutoCAD prints that detail the front view of the wire form, side view, top view, and an isometric view (as if you were standing over the wire form near the corner). We can also depict your wire form stacked for you to confirm that the design meets your requirements.

Upon print approval, we release travelers to our factory. For example, the Fixture Department makes precise aluminum fixtures, TIG welded together and marked with your part #, to hold your parts. These aluminum fixtures act as a "GO"/"NO GO" tool. Only precisely formed parts fit into the fixture. The Bending Department robots make two or three dimensional parts. The Welding Department mounts the aluminum fixtures on robots that weld the parts consistently (resistance or MIG, depending on the application). For example, our robotic MIG welder welds parts with a tolerance of +/-0.003" in the "x" plane, "y" plane, and "z" plane. The MIG welder is in effect the ultimate quality checker of your parts.

Once the parts are welded, we pack them securely, shrink wrap, and ship them raw, or we can provide a finish. Typical finishes include electropolish (for stainless), nickel plating, chrome plating, epoxy coating, urethane coating, polyester coating, polyolefin coating, powder coating, plastisol PVC coating, nylon coating, and galvanizing.

If you have any questions or would like to send a print, contact us or fax it to 410-644-7457.
