With the myriad of wire material, coating, and sizing options available to customers in custom wire production, at California Fine Wire Co., technical support is a large part of what we do. The numerous factors at play in the design of a custom wire product can be initially daunting, but when chosen properly, these options provide several opportunities for optimizing product performance and minimizing material costs. Our team has been in the custom wire drawing, coating, and packaging business for over 50 years and has a wealth of experience that encompasses applications that span several industries. Numerous aerospace, medical, defense, and electronics customers rely on us to provide expert guidance to supply premium quality products that meet their precision fine wire needs.

We manufacture round and flat wire from aluminum, copper, precious metal, and resistance wire alloys using the highest quality raw materials that meet all applicable DFARS, REACH, and RoHS requirements. In-house quality control measures such as tensile strength testing and resistance testing as well as precision dimensional inspections ensure that all customer specifications are met. Packaging is also an important factor when selecting wire. We can advise customers whether spooled wire or cut to length pieces would better suit their application, and which type of spool or tube would best meet their specific needs.
