.062 music wire form mechanical seals
Several methods to manufacture wire forms are used depending on the size of the part and quantity run. Secondary operations, bending, drilling, tapping, machining, welding, heat treating, grinding are used for short-run quantities. Fourslide, multislide, stamping, and progressive die operations are used for long-runs (usually 20,000 + pcs.), and require special tooling. Many times wire forms are fabricated and welded into assemblies such as baskets or other material handling components.
