Wire Forming

Wire Forming with a Flexible Partner

For nearly 70 years, Wald Wire has provided strong, long-lasting components to product and equipment manufacturers throughout the country. Our processes allow for repeatable quality and highly predictable delivery, providing peace of mind that the components you need will be ready when you require them.

CNC 3D Wire Forming

For high volume 3-dimensional wire parts such as linkages or hangers, our CNC 3D wire forming machine uses computer programming to produce complex 3-dimensional wire forms at high speed with pinpoint accuracy. This means we can get your parts to you faster, whether you require a short production run or thousands of components every month.

CNC 2D Wire Forming

Similar to our 3D wire forming, our CNC 2D wire forming machinery uses computer programming to produce muti-bend, 2-dimensional wire forms at high speed. Automated butt welding allows for closed-loop products to be produced in a single step.

Rolled threads and cut threads

Whether you require threading for fasteners, fittings or attachments to other components, Wald Wire can fabricate them using rolled or cut threads depending on your application.

Rolled Threads

In the thread rolling process, an undersized metal rod is “rolled” through a set of threading dies to build up the peaks and valleys that become the threads. This very efficient process results in high strength threads achieved in fast cycle times. Due to setup time, rolled threads are best suited for large production runs with high-strength linkage or fastener requirements.

Cut Threads

In contrast to thread rolling, thread cutting is a subtractive process whereby metal is removed from a wire to create threads with a diameter equal to the body of the wire. While this is a slower process, it can be used with a wider variety of diameters and thread lengths for your custom or short-run projects. Additionally, cutting threads allows for a variety of thread length, diameter and pitch combinations.

Spot Welding

Spot welding creates a direct bond allowing for fast and efficient production when speed, volume and weld appearance are more important than strength. With simple tooling, our spot welding provides a cost efficient way to manufacture custom wire products in any volume of production runs.
