Shaped Wire

Shaped Wire

It is a common fact that in the industrial market of metal wires as far as the cross-section profile of metal material is concerned, it is usually limited. However, more complicated shapes are always required in innumerable industrial applications, because the design of component parts demands accuracy, precision that needs delicate materials. These types of metal wire are produced for special industrial applications, and this wire is mostly categorized as Shaped Wire or Profiled Wire.

The primary manufacturing of Shaped Wire consists of wire drawing, spherodized annealing and rolling process. During this technical process the wires also change the characteristics. Precision Drawell manufactures shaped wire in the form of simple squares, rectangles and hexagons to highly complex and non-symmetrical shapes as per the customer's needs. Shaped Wires are predominantly used in numerous applications thus makes the Shaped Wire a versatile design component. The raw materials making Shaped Wires are drawn into multiple shapes and sizes for a variety of applications..

Circlips Wires

Circlips Wires are either Square or Rectangular cross sections commonly produced from high carbon steel generally conforming to EN-42 & EN-42J. These wires are mainly supplied in two ways, Annealed & Annealed Pinch Pass finish. The major use of these wires is the making of lock circlips used for locking shafts. For anti rust prevention rust preventive oil is appplied over the wire

Spring Washer Wires

The wire for spring washers are manufactured by Square, Rectangular or Trapezoidal cross sections, generally made from high carbon steel conforming to EN-42B/En-42C or stainless steel SS-304,SS-316. The wires are customized for the taper required and are supplied in Drawn & Annealed finish. The Wire for Spring Washer Wires are a kind of washer wire used in all kinds of spring washers, circlips, and spring for automotive seating systems, wave springs, spiral rings, wave washers, oil seals, laminar seal rings and snap rings. Rust preventive Oil is applied.

Quality Check of Shaped Wire

Our state of the art lab facility makes certain that only the best reaches our customers. Therefore, we follow a strict 3-fold quality check protocol.

  • Raw materials are inspected heat wise.
  • After annealing the intermediate samples are checked for spheroidization, ultimate tensile strength and hardness. On the approval of our quality its further cold rolled into various shapes.
  • Finished materials are tested and on approval of our quality team the material is dispatched.

Features of Shaped Wire

  • Promises fine edges - This is one of the striking features of our Shaped Wire, it is quite flexible, handy as it will never leave a burr or raised edge after cutting the material.
  • Spheroidization level above 90%.
  • Burr free ends with no welding leading to uniform properties of the wire.
  • Low tolerances up to plus minus 0.02 mm.
  • Higher number of twists and bends can be performed resulting in least number of breakages of the wire.
  • Traceability with the heat number.
