Wire Forming

Modern Grinding has automated machinery to form wire for your next project. Our in depth experience with Nitinol and Stainless Steel wire forming will make us an invaluable partner in helping you succeed. Modern Grinding has the experience to be able to tell you what is possible before you go off track.

Custom Medical Wire Components

Modern Grinding can help with wire bending, wire heat treating, wire turning to create whatever type of wire form you are looking for. Some typical types of wire forms are wire straightening, wire coiling, j bends, u bends, l bends, 90 degree wire bends and full or half turn radii.

Wire Forming Dimensions

The typical wire that we work with is between .006" and .032" in diameter. The length of the wire can be infinite (or at the very least as long as a spool can hold). We can also do tube bending for certain products. Modern Grinding formed wire products are typically used in medical devices. We can form stainless steel and nitinol wires.

Wire Engineering

Do you have a small stainless steel or nitinol wire component that you need help with? Our engineering team will help you through the design and manufacturing process. We can help you determine which method of wire forming will be most appropriate for your project. We can let you know which aspects of your unique wire design are easiest to achieve and which should be tweaked for manufacturing efficiency. We have the capability to stamp or form directly from a wire spool in a highly automated, fast, repeatable process.

Industries Served

The majority of our work at Modern Grinding is focused on wire components for the medical industry. When it comes to bending we service a large variety of industries including orthodontics, automotive, aerospace, gun, tooling and many more.
