Fort Wayne Metals are the market leader for custom-drawn precision wire for medical and surgical products in the United States.
Whether you’re looking for round wire or flat wire of any shape, strands or composites like DFT®, Titanium alloys or Nitinol, Fort Wayne Metals will custom draw the product you need.
Flatwire, also referred to as ribbon wire, exhibits a smooth, bright surface finish and can be produced to tight tolerances. Fort Wayne Metals utilizes two manufacturing techniques in order to produce two different types of radius edged flatwire: rolled and drawn. Flatwire is available in all alloys.
Shaped wire allows you to leverage the versatility of non standard profiles. From triangles to crescent shapes, or wire with a continuous helical groove, we manufacture shaped wire in a variety of alloys. To do this, we use specialized tooling and processing, creating a unique construction that decreases the overall cross-sectional area.
We make a number of standard shapes, but we’re always willing to push the boundaries. If the shapes below aren’t what you’re looking for, don’t hesitate to reach out to us to start a conversation about custom shaped wire.
Fort Wayne Metals manufactures wire products from various grades of Nickel-Titanium or Nitinol commonly used in medical applications. Nitinol combines two closely related unique characteristics: shape memory and superelasticity. more info
