• WIRE DRAWING : Using tensile forces we stretch the metal stock and draw it through a die to reduce the diameter and increase its length. Sometimes we use a series of dies. We are capable of making dies for every gauge of wire. Using material of high tensile strength we draw very thin wires. We offer both cold and hot worked wires.
• WIRE FORMING : A roll of gauged wire is bent and shaped into a useful product. We have the capability of forming wires from all gauges, including thin filaments as well as thick wires such as the ones used as springs under automobile chassis. Equipment we use for wire forming are manual and CNC wire formers, coiler, power presses, fourslide, multi-slide. Our processes are drawing, bending, straightening, flattening, stretching, cutting, upsetting, soldering & welding & brazing, assembly, coiling, swaging (or winging), piercing, wire threading, drilling, chamfering, grinding, coating and surface treatments. Our state-of-the-art equipment can be set-up to develop very complex designs of any shape and tight tolerances. We offer various end types like spherical, pointed or chamfered ends for your wires. Most of our wire forming projects have minimal to zero tooling costs. Sample turnaround times are generally days. Changes to design/configuration of wire forms can be made very quickly.
• SPRING FORMING : AGS-TECH manufactures a large variety of springs including:
-Torsion / Double Torsion Spring
-Tension / Compression Spring
-Constant / Variable Spring
-Coil & Helical Spring
-Flat & Leaf Spring
-Progressive Rate Coil Spring
We manufacture springs from a variety of materials and can guide you according to your application. Most common materials are stainless steel, chrome silicon, high-carbon steel, oil-tempered low-carbon, chrome vanadium, phosphor bronze, titanium, beryllium copper alloy, high-temperature ceramic.
We use various techniques in the manufacture of springs, including CNC coiling, cold winding, hot winding, hardening, finishing. Other techniques already mentioned above under wire forming are also common in our spring manufacturing operations.
• FINISHING SERVICES for WIRES & SPRINGS : We can finish your products in many ways depending on your choice and needs. Some common processes we offer are: painting, powder coating, plating, vinyl dipping, anodizing, stress relieve, heat treatment, shot peen, tumble, chromate, electroless nickel, passivation, baked enamel, plastic coat, plasma cleaning.
