Performance, Precision, Proprietary

We specialize in delivering high performance wires with excellent surface finishing, high tolerances and superior stress relief for greater kink resistance and exceptional torque response. We excel at delivering complex wires & coils to high precision specifications and small profile solutions to 0.001” Ø. This unique combination of performance and precision is achieved through our proprietary in-house equipment.

In addition to volume manufacturing we assist our customers at every stage of the product development process from concept development to product launch including metallurgical consulting, design for manufacturing assistance and cleanroom assembly of wire based devices to packaging and labelling.

For the fastest route to high quality wire and coil short-run prototypes in the industry, our Express service features expedited quotes, pre-stocked raw material and overnight shipping.
