What a shaped wire piece is

A shaped wire piece is a mechanical component obtained through the wire-forming process. The wire-forming process involves using an automatic machine to shape a metal wire into a specific form. The metal wire is bent, cut, stretched or otherwise worked to achieve a precise shape. A shaped wire piece can be used in many applications such as in the automotive, mechanical, electronic, furniture industry and many others.

Shaped wire pieces Typology

Specialised shaped wire pieces, simple or complex forms using our vast range of CNC Wafios® torsion and bending machines, and Bihler® bending machines.
We usually use round wire, and on request wire in square or rectangular sections.
On demand we also have the capability to automatically monitor the beveling at the same machine. We are able to deliver both in small (tens of pieces) and large numbers (millions of pieces).


Shaped wire pieces made of round wire thicknesses from 0.10 mm to 12.00 mm.


Currently the following materials are being used:

  • Carbon steel wire of classification: SL, SM, SH, DH according to norm EN 10270-1, also in pregalvanised and Bezinal® versions.
