Springs come in a huge range of different shapes and sizes, each used for their own specific purpose. Within numerous industries, springs are a huge part of how a product functions, playing a huge role in some of the things we use every day.
What Are Wire Forms?
Wire forms are one of those essential component types that rarely ever gets acknowledged for their utility, but which has a profound impact on the world. Commonly used in headsets, computer brace devices or sometimes even in the manner of a simple pin, no two examples of a wire form need ever look alike.
Wire forms can be manipulated into certain shapes and sizes and configured to fit the need of any design a seller wants. They can be made in simple beams or a cantilever design and can be made in coils or springs using various thicknesses or small rings in differing diameters.A common wire form is a spring, though any shape that a wire takes is technically a wire form. Other often seen wire forms include hooks and certain clips.
The wire used in wire forms can be made of any suitable metal; however, the type of metal used can vary based on specific needs. A wire form could be made from the following metals:
- Stainless steel
What Industries Use Wire Forms?
Wire forms can be found in almost every industry, including:
- Heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC)
- Medical devices
Within the construction industry, wire forms are most commonly used for the equipment. They are created and designed for power tools and hand tools that can withstand the tight tolerances this type of equipment experiences.
Within the lighting industry, CNC wire forms are commonly used. This is due to their durability and meeting tight tolerances. Light fixture wires are common; these simple wire forms are designed to safely hold a lighting fixture in a ceiling.
The Value of Custom Wire Forms
At European Springs Ireland, we use 14 of the very latest CNC automated spring coilers and equipment, meaning we can create these forms according to almost any design that you can think of.
Our advanced machinery has had a great effect on the production of wire forms, as we are now able to manufacture them in huge quantities, although we still hand fashion wire pins when an order is only relatively small in size.
We also make use of manual processes to offer specialist hand cooling treatments, and it is this wealth of experience, combined with our knowledge of spring wire properties, that enables us to make wire pins of exceptional precision and quality. Customising your wire forms means we can create the perfect fit for your needs.
As spring manufacturers, we deliver a professional service designing and supplying springs. If you would like to find out more information about our wire forms, or any of our other springs, do not hesitate to get in touch with a member of our expert team today.
