First, because of the versatility of wire forming, the specifications must be laid down before the project can begin. Typically wire forming is designed for the individual application, to a specific set of specifications. That being said, we typically create wire forms from wire diameters.
Second, the material for the construction must be selected. The rule of thumb for material consideration is that the softer the material the easier it is to wind around a tool, and the smaller the radius that can be achieved.
Third, the machine that is being used to create the form is set and the correct tooling is placed into it. The CNC wire forming is the latest forming tech to provide wire forming service. Determining the correct tooling is an extremely important step in the process because it is the tooling the ensures the final product is bent correctly.
Finally, the wire, fed from a coil, is fed into the machine and is bent around the tooling to create the final shape.
Multi-shaped wire forming is bent with multiple 90-degree right-angle bends, and because the raw material is made of high elastic gin wire, the material must be annealed before it can be bent and shaped. Serpentine bending products require a high degree of consistency in the size of each shape, the material needs a certain degree of strength, the overall flatness of the product needs to be guaranteed, and the product has a certain load-bearing capacity, so the product needs to be heat-treated and shaped.
