The level of workmanship we provide at Apex Wire Products Co., Inc. allows us to serve a wide variety of industries by providing premium quality wire forming services. The custom U-bolt highlighted here is used on truck trailers. The 13.25" long and 7" wide bolt is cut from 0.75" diameter A36 hot rolled steel round wire. The bolt is hand formed to within ±0.0625" using our hydraulic bending equipment and is threaded at both ends. Visual and dimensional inspections are performed during fabrication to ensure all parts meet customer specifications.

We are capable of bending a wide range of wire materials and diameters using manual and CNC forming processes. In addition, we can machine part features, such as the thread in this bolt, as well as chamfer or swage wire ends as specified. This bolt is produced in runs of 500 pieces with a typical lead time of 2 to 3 weeks. With over 70 years' of experience in the manufacturing industry, our team can meet a range of volume needs with fast turnaround at competitive prices.
