From mining to agriculture, Brookfield Wire proudly serves a variety of industries with unique solutions. Our custom shaped wire is made with exact cross-sectional dimensions that are net or near-net in shape, reducing machining and scrap costs. Available in coils or cut to length, our shaped wire solutions are available in a wide range of sizes, alloys, finishes, and tempers.
Flat wire, also known as ribbon wire, is another type of shaping wire. To start, a round wire is drawn to optimal sizing. Then, we roll the wire to a flat cross-section with a series of processes, using anneals when necessary. Flat wire offers close dimensional tolerances and a variety of edges on narrow widths. Edge options include natural round, broken corner, full rounded, and square edge. Additionally, flat wire always comes in various alloys, finishes, sizes, and packaging, including continuous coils.
Brookfield Wire provides flat roll up to 1/2-inch wide. A maximum width thickness of 10:1 is possible in most cases. Square or rectangular wire up to 1/4-inch is common. Other sizes, which don’t often meet this criterion, are available on an item-by-item basis. All tempers are available, from strand annealed to spring.
