You can see a quick checklist of the basic information required to properly specify custom wire racks.

Depending on the configuration of the part, tooling can consist of templates, go-no go gages, forming dies, punches, weld & assembly fixtures, dies, etc. Tooling is usually required to ensure consistency from part to part & to hold critical and functional dimensions. As all of the parts Acme Wire Products manufactures are custom, there will be tooling involved. Tooling is customer owned & cannot be utilized for other projects.

Set up and sample costs are usually provided as part of the tooling/development charge.

Critical dimensions can be achieved through custom fixturing. While each wire fabricator will have their own fabrication techniques and strengths, Acme Wire Products focuses on manufacturing engineered components so we have the systems in place to be able to provide the tightest tolerances in the wire fabrication industry.
