Machine Cut End:

Wire ends can be cut straight with miniscule burrs or be clean cut without burrs. The finished wire can be quill or angle cut with a single angle or an angle on both sides of the end.

Chamfered End:

Chamfered ends have a smooth flat slope around the end to remove sharp edges.


Winging or swaging cut is accomplished by placing the end of the wire in a die that creates a wing shape on the end of the wire.

Pierced Swaging:

With pierced swaging, the wire is cut to give it a swaging shape and a hole is cut in the center of the swaging.

Custom Shaped Hole:

With custom shaped holes, a hole is cut in the end of the wire after the wire has been trimmed by a die that punctures the wire to form the hole.

Chisel Point and Turned End:

In this process, dies form a jagged end by cutting the wire on a diagonal.

Ball end:

A lathe shapes the end of the wire into the form of a ball.


As with the process of forming a ball end, in the groove end process, a groove is cut in the end of the wire.

Cold Heading:

In cold heading, the wire is subjected to multiple blows to flatten or round the end, which can result in button, carriage, or collar headings.
