Custom Wire Forms

In addition to the comprehensive range of springs we manufacture at Jackson Spring Mfg. Co. Inc., we can fabricate custom wire forms to customer prints using round or flat wire. Utilizing manual or CNC processes, depending of the form and production volume, our trained metalworkers can create custom wire forms using ASTM and SAE grade stainless steel, copper, carbon steel, and alloy steel wire.

Optical comparators, vision systems, and load testing equipment are used to verify conformance to all dimensional and performance requirements. Our documented quality management system is backed by an ISO 9001:2008 certification and over 50 years’ of industry experience. Surface treatment options include black oxide or zinc plating as well as custom color coating or stainless steel passivation.

For high volume production, we can set up automated processes that allow parts to be run in a lights out manufacturing setting, minimizing per piece costs. Lead times are quoted on a job by job basis, but typically average 3 to 4 weeks. JIT delivery and expedited production services are also available on request. For additional information about our custom wire forming capability, see the table below, or contact us directly.
