Metal Alloy Selection
Wire forms have a wide range of applications. The design process starts with the selection of the right type of metal alloy. For most clients, the first decision will be to use stainless steel wire or carbon steel wire. Both stainless steel and carbon steel wires come in many alloys. Our wire forming equipment can handle many different alloys. Our experienced engineers can help you select the right alloy for your application.
304, 316, 201, and stainless steel spring wire are some of the different stainless steel wire alloys that we keep in stock to deliver short lead times. Each of these alloys has different properties. Contact us for more information.
1008, 1018, and carbon steel spring wire are some of the different carbon steel wire alloys that we keep in stock. Each alloy has different properties and goes through different processes during metal fabrication.
Wire Diameter Selection
Next, you will want to choose the right wire diameters for your custom wire forms or steel wire products. This decision will be largely based on your application. Our design engineers are experienced steel fabricators and can guide you in the selection of the right wire diameters for your products. Often, several different wire diameters will be incorporated into the same custom wire form or welded wire assembly.
Choosing the right alloys and the right wire diameters are the first two steps in making sure that your wire products are made efficiently and serve their intended purpose well.
The type of alloy and wire diameter you select will both impact the wire forming process used. Pronto has a variety of different CNC wire forming machines that are used in different circumstances.
We rely on our many years of experience as a metal fabricator and wire forming company and our team of engineers to develop a process that will optimize manufacturing your custom wire forms and steel wire products, all based on your specifications. Designing the process is a collaborative approach among our design, production, quality control, and automation engineers. These processes are influenced by many factors including the alloys used, selection of equipment, types of welding involved, fixtures used, production run size, and other factors that we have developed over many years to save you time and money.

304 Stainless Steel
304 stainless steel is the most common stainless steel alloy in the world and for good reason. Its chromium and nickel content creates superior corrosion resistance, among other benefits.
316 Stainless Steel
316 stainless steel adds molybdenum, which increases corrosion resistance. It is a great choice for marine environments or anywhere corrosion is a significant concern.
1008 Carbon Steel
1008 carbon steel is a great choice for many applications and one of the most common carbon wire alloys. Versatile and a great choice for many applications.
Stainless steel spring wire or carbon steel spring wire is used in springs or applications that require the properties of spring wire.
Choosing raw materials is the first step in ensuring a successful steel wire product. Pronto is an experienced metal fabricator, so our engineers can assist you with the design and material selection process.
Each one of the alloys that we work with has advantages. For more information on any specific alloy, please see the materials pages on this website or ask us so that our expertise becomes your advantage. Wire forming and metal fabrication is our passion!
