We’ll work with you from prototype to production to finish, designing and manufacturing our parts to your desired specifications. Typical modifications include increasing or decreasing wire thickness, diameter or depth, altering end configurations and our coiled wire part production process does not require special tooling for nonstandard specifications when an existing wire size is keeping costs controlled.

If your customizations require tooling, our expert staff will analyze every detail of your specifications in order to develop the most practical and feasible product possible. That includes identifying aspects that can add to the price and complexity of the job and recommending optimal alternatives that will keep costs in line. We’ll also make sure your custom part meets the relevant quality standards and certifications for its intended application.
