Steel Wire Products
Materials and Quality Control
Steel wire products for the automotive, aerospace, pharmaceutical, and sporting goods industries need rigorous quality control processes because of safety considerations. Our quality control engineers are critical to our success in manufacturing these products.
304 Stainless Steel
Type 304 stainless steel is a common choice due to its superior corrosion resistance and toughness.
316 Stainless Steel
Type 316 stainless steel is another common choice for steel wire products in these industries. 316 stainless steel contains molybdenum, which improves corrosion resistance.
Steel Wire Fabrication
Pronto is an ISO certified steel wire fabrication expert. Our quality control engineering team is involved in all aspects of our manufacturing process. The process starts with the design of the product. We use CAD software to review the design of the product and each one of its components.
The next step in manufacturing steel wire products is determining the manufacturing path for a particular product. This will impact fixture design and quality control fixtures. After this, we design and create the fixtures for assembling and welding the steel wire product. A cross functional team holds NPI (New Product Introduction) meetings to review the fixtures and process.
Next, each of the wire forms and metal parts that will be used to manufacture the product are examined and the appropriate equipment is selected for wire forming or sheet metal fabrication. As part of this process, we also examine the different welds that we will use to weld together the different wire forms and sheet metal parts.
We next look at the metal finishing that will be used for the steel wire product. We have many options available for metal finishing and the right finish will often depend on the application and the customer’s requirements.
Because quality control is integral to everything that we do, our quality control engineers develop quality control checks throughout each step of the steel wire fabrication process.
Pronto uses CAD software for our parts, fixtures, and design work. We also use CAD simulations to test fit, tolerances, and function.
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 finish that will withstand the temperature, stress, or other relevant considerations for your metal products.
