Custom Wire Forms

Various Precision Wire Forms

Wire forms are essentially a wire that is manipulated into various shapes, sizes and configurations and can often involve sophisticated manufacturing methods involving the latest four-slide, multi-slide and CNC precision machinery. Many spring and precision metal component products are difficult or impossible to manufacture without the development of these complex manufacturing methods.

James Spring is one of the few diversified manufacturers of custom spring and wire forms that use highly skilled tool and die makers to design and build specialized tooling and custom machines for our customers’ products.

Custom Wire Form Manufacturing

Our custom wire forms are available in a range of materials, including exotic materials, copper, and stainless steel. Wire forms can be manufactured to specific angle and length requirements with our high-speed, four-slide machines and CNC wire formers. Our automatic machines allow precision accuracy and repeatability for any volume order.

Our secondary operation capabilities can also be used to produce small orders of wire forms, which are normally not suitable for automatic formation. Customers can also choose from a range of finishing options for wire forms, including surface treatment, plating, and cleaning.

Design assistance and verification of your designs are performed by our engineering department. We accept your designs in the following formats – .DWF, .DWG, DXF, FBX, JPG, PRT, SAT, TIF, STP, and PDF. Our staff can handcraft prototypes for your approval, prior to fabricating final tooling.

The design and creation of wire forms can be a complicated process. At James Spring we will work with you to create a high-quality product that fits your unique application requirements in an efficient and affordable fashion.
