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.

Marlin Steel Wire Products LLC is a custom wire form manufacturer designing and engineering products ranging from stainless steel baskets, material handling containers, and racks to swaged and pierced wire forms and S, C, and eye hooks. In business since 1968, our company has extensive experience creating wire form solutions for clients in several industries.

Our Wire Form Manufacturing Capabilities

To meet the needs of virtually any industrial or production project, Marlin Steel manufactures all styles of wire forms with precision for fast delivery. We incorporate automated manufacturing equipment and wire-bending robots into our processes to quickly and reliably produce consistent, high-quality results. Our Baltimore shop is equipped with such machinery as:

  • Three-Dimensional CNC Bender–AIM that achieves over 6,000 bends each hour
  • RoboMac 310 CNC wire forming robot
  • Ultimat UMW-100 for high-speed, precise wire forming
  • Minister CX-1100 for clean and rapid piercing, swaging, and more

Each week, we design, manufacture, and ship tens or even hundreds of thousands of custom wire forms to engineers and industrial customers across the globe.

We build our custom creations to your exact specifications. Our team can machine wire with a minimum and maximum diameter of 0.05 and 1.25 inches, respectively, with options for fine and ultra-fine sizes. We'll work closely with you to understand your product needs and then suggest design improvements to optimize your wire form for a truly customized solution.


We utilize a range of materials for our custom metal forms to meet the unique performance needs of your application. We commonly work with:

  • Stainless steel: Grades 304, 316, and 330
  • Steel: Grades 1008 and 1010
  • Carbon steel: Bright basic, low, medium, and high varieties
