A welding industry client approached Plymouth Spring Company, Inc. to manufacture an oil tempered wire form. The wire form, which was to be used as a welding shield retainer within welding helmets, was bent, formed and cut. Throughout this process we were able to hold tightest tolerances of ±.005″. At completion the wire form measured 5.570″ long, 5.282″ wide and had a wire diameter of .060″. Each frame in the yearly order of 10,000-25,000 underwent dimensional inspection.
