Wire Forming | What features does WireTech offer?

The wire forming process begins with large spools of steel wire that is threaded through machines ready to be shaped into 2D and 3D parts.  Not every part has the same purpose or function so different features and finishes are necessary to accomplish the parts needed functionality.
