Medical Stainless Steel Wire Baskets
Stainless steel custom wire baskets for the medical and pharmaceutical industry have special requirements. The first step is making sure that you are using the right materials. Usually, we recommend using 304 stainless steel or 316 stainless steel for custom wire basket fabrication. Also, wire mesh will often be used depending on the end use and customer specifications.
304 Stainless Steel
Type 304 stainless steel is often used for wire baskets because of its corrosion resistance, toughness, and formability.
316 Stainless Steel
Type 316 stainless steel is used when additional corrosion resistance is required. 316 is an alloy that contains molybdenum which adds to its corrosion resistance properties.
Custom Wire Baskets
Pronto is the leading manufacturer of custom wire baskets. Our process starts with the design of the basket. This includes choosing from the different finishes available. For stainless steel wire baskets, the usual choice is electropolishing. However, we make many steel wire baskets that require different coatings. Talisman, PTFE (commonly called Teflon), LDPE, nylon, and powder coating are all available options. Our experienced engineers can help you choose the right metal finish for your application.
For steel wire baskets used in the medical and pharmaceutical industries, tolerances are often very tight. We have developed additional processes and fixtures when dealing with tight tolerances. This allows us to manufacture your custom wire baskets quickly and efficiently.
Many custom stainless steel wire baskets require fine wire mesh. We have a variety of stainless steel wire mesh that we keep in stock, reducing lead times. Our production engineers have many years of experience cutting, bending, forming, and welding wire mesh for a wide range of products.
Medical wire baskets and racks often have cosmetic requirements. This means that weld appearance and finishing is important. We have developed a variety of custom wire basket fabrication techniques to ensure that our wire baskets and racks are cosmetically appealing.
Pronto uses CAD software for our parts, fixtures, and design work. We also use CAD simulations to test fit, tolerances, and function for stainless steel wire baskets and other wire products.
Start right by selecting materials that are well suited for your application. We use a variety of different materials to make sure that your wire form or sheet metal part will work as intended.
Selecting the correct finish for wire forms and metal products is critical. We can help you select the custom wire basket finish that will withstand the temperature, stress, or other relevant considerations for your metal products.
