Wire forming involves applying force to a length of wire to alter its shape. Raw stock feeds into wire forming machinery either from wire coils weighing anywhere from 5 to 5,000 pounds or as blank forms in a hopper. Forming equipment will then utilize a range of possible techniques such as swaging, bending, shearing, and piercing so that the wire will take on the desired profile. Encompassing a variety of configurations, dimensions, and textures, wire forms are two- or three-dimensional parts of metal wire or tube construction.
