Strip Forming

Large Strip Forms

Strip forming is a very similar process to wire forming and typically involves bending, welding and cutting. The bending process in strip forming tends to be rather complex, requiring the need for sophisticated equipment. At James Spring & Wire we manufacture precision strip form parts from a range of materials, using high-volume four-slide machines. Precision strip forms are available in thicknesses from 0.015″ to 0.125” and widths from 0.375″ to 1.875″.

Cost-Effective Precision Stamping & Forming

Our four-slide machines handle both stamping and forming operations, allowing us to reduce additional tooling costs as well as lead time to ensure the highest of quality in all metal stampings. Our four-slide strip forming machines are capable of manufacturing intricate strip forms with multiple bends. We also specialize in building complex tooling.
