At California Fine Wire Co., we manufacture premium quality custom wire products for customers in a wide range of industries. Our wire drawing capabilities include the ability to produce wire between 10 microns and 1 mm in diameter using precision drawing dies. The quality of the dies that are used in the wire drawing process have a direct impact on the precision and consistency that can be achieved in the final product. All of our dies are polished in-house by experienced craftsmen who take pride in the quality and precision of their work.

Everything we manufacture is custom, freeing customers to select the exact alloy, diameter, and packaging method to best suit their given application. Aluminum, copper, resistance wire, and precious metal alloys are only a few of the available material options. Contact us for the full range of alloys and wire material choices that are available. In addition to custom wire drawing, we can redraw standard products provided by the customer to improve the roundness of the wire for precision applications. Our “ultra finish” option provides the best surface finish and meets the tightest diameter tolerances in the industry. Precision diamond dies are used in the final drawing process to create an ultra finish on the wire.

Custom wire can be drawn in any quantity and packaged on spools or cut to length, depending on the application. Lead times are evaluated on a job by job basis, and kanban inventory management programs are available. For additional information about our custom precision wire drawing capabilities, see the table below or contact us directly.
