Flatwire, also referred to as ribbon wire, exhibits a smooth, bright surface finish and can be produced to tight tolerances. Fort Wayne Metals utilizes two manufacturing techniques in order to produce two different types of radius edged flatwire: rolled and drawn. Flatwire is available in all alloys. Let us help you with your wire needs. Please contact us.
The typical width/thickness ratio is 3:1 minimum to a 10:1 maximum: minimum thickness of 0.0127 mm [0.0005 in]. Please note that these values vary by alloy.
Rolled wire is available in three surface finishes:
It is recommended that drawn flatwire be stress relieved after the initial drawing to help better improve its cast and camber. We have the ability to draw this wire down to sizes as thin as 0.0381 mm [0.0015 in].
