CNC Wire Forming
What is CNC Wire Forming?
Computerized numerical control (CNC) wire forming was developed in the early 1970's. Essentially, a computer is programmed to instruct wire bending machinery to execute a series of steps to produce the desired wire shape - with precision, repeatability, and minimal material waste.
Computerized wire forming has revolutionized the wire forming industry. You likely see products made this way on a daily basis. CNC wire forming has a host of benefits over traditional hand bending:
- Produces finished products with precision and accuracy every time
- Mitigates operator error
- Maximizes material efficiency for wire shapes
- Is quick, efficient, and cost-effective
