CAPABILITIES

CNC wire forming allows us to create precision wire parts of virtually any shape or size, whether muffler hangers or other exhaust hangers, strikers, ISO fix wires or other specialized fasteners for Automotive, Lawn and Garden, Medical Manufacturing, Agricultural and other OEM companies.

The capabilities of our CNC wire forming process, as well as other wire services, include:

CNC Wire Forming

  • Diameters of .236 to .551″ (6-14mm)

  • 4-6 axis machines

  • Chamfering and cold heading

Multi-slide Forming

  • .250-.500″ (6.35-12.7mm) diameter capacity

  • Multi-axis machine providing high volume efficiency

Electric Resistance Welding (ERW) refers to a group of welding processes, such as spot and seam welding, that produce coalescence of faying surfaces. Heat to form the weld is generated by the electrical resistance of material vs. the time and the forces used to hold the materials together during the welding.
Small pools of molten metal are formed at the point of most electrical resistance (the connecting surfaces) as a high current (100-100,000 A) is passed through the metal.

We are capable of performing the following welding processes:

  • Welding of Rods to Rods

  • Stamping to Rods

  • Stamping to Stamping Assembly

  • Stampings to Stampings

Robotic arc welding is an efficient, high-quality automated fusion process in which a welding power supply transmits electricity, via a welding torch from an electrode to the base metal, in an arc that generates sufficient heat to melt the metal at the joint.

The resulting fusion bond has the same strength as the original metals, duplicating their mechanical and physical properties.

Press operations include many secondary processes including bending, coining, piercing and forming of metal products. We use both mechanical and hydraulic presses, depending on part type.

  • Bending

  • Coining

  • Piercing

  • Forming

Progressive stamping is a metalworking method that encompasses punching, coining, bending and several other ways of modifying metal raw material. We then combine these processes using an automatic feeding system.

  • Progressive stamping

  • Line die stamping

  • Capability up to 200 tons

Cold Heading alters the shape or size of a metal by extruding and heading in certain sections along lengths of wire or rod stock, causing the material to flow between the dies. Hardness and tensile strength are increased with the degree of cold work.

Our hand feed and automatic cold heading machines have the capacity to handle materials of the following sizes:

  • 1/4″ to 1″ diameters (6.35 – 25.4mm)

  • 1″ to 96″ long (25.4 -2438mm)

Applications

Cold heading is most commonly used to manufacture muffler hangers, strikers, ISO fix wires and other types of specialty products.

  • Diameters up to 1.38″ (35mm)

  • Presses ranging from 10 ton to up to 1500 ton

  • Coining, Bending, Piercing and Trimming
