Wire forming can be defined as any piece of wire to which some force has been applied to make shapes or parts, such as clips, springs, springs, pins, rings, hooks, frames and a multitude of other products.
The wire used for the manufacture of parts can be round, flat, hexagonal, square, oval, triangular, elliptical, D…
Gestión de Compras manufactures and supplies wire parts for a wide variety of industries, such as all types of springs and springs, mesh, fencing, wire cloth, pins, hooks, rings, welded wire parts, machinery and automotive parts, household parts and electronic instruments, medical equipment…
If we can highlight a process through which wire is usually shaped, it is wire drawing. In this process, a wire is reduced in section and then passed through a specific hole, in the shape of a cone. The most commonly used materials for this forming process are copper, aluminum, steel or brass.
THE CHARACTERISTICS OF WIRE FORMING
Thus, the wire is shaped by applying forces that change its contour, i.e., it can be bent, pierced, stamped, beveled, drawn and the application of many more techniques to achieve the desired shape. In addition, secondary operations such as cutting, punching, bending, stamping, stamping, coining… can be performed in the process.
Generally, the forming process starts with the wire in coil form. During the process, the wire acquires the desired shape by moving it in dies and multifunction stamping machines in multiple directions, either simultaneously or successively. Progressive die manufacturing is a very efficient production where multiple forming operations are carried out at different positions of the wire throughout the cycle stages.
Some of the most important advantages of the wire drawing process are:
- Increased dimensional accuracy
- Improved surface quality
- Substantial increase in hardness
- Substantial increase in strength
- Ability to produce sections that are very thin
Wire has many uses as it is the raw material for the manufacture of parts and materials in many important industries. Such as engineering springs, industrial mesh, spun wires, wire cloth, power conductors (aluminum, copper, nickel and steel wire), heating equipment, fencing, building material, aerospace, medical equipment, industrial machinery, furniture, etc.
