Shaped/Profile Wire is used in a wide variety of applications from high temperature aircraft engine parts to architectural screens. Choosing to use a custom engineered profile wire where appropriate can reduce the costs related to scrap and the processing time of machining operations. With complicated stampings Shaped/Profile Wires can produce features not easily achievable with typical stamping operations. This approach can be a very cost effective way to manufacture using the most exotic of alloys with a lower total cost as a net shape or near net shape. Ulbrich Shaped Wire has the ability to provide profiles to exacting dimensional tolerances and physical properties. Our team of process engineers, tooling experts, and rolling mill engineers have produced the most complex of shapes for highly critical applications.
Applications for Shaped Wire and Profile Wire Include:
