With over 70 years' of experience, at Apex Wire Products Co., Inc., we provide high quality forming of most any custom wire fabrication. We not only provide bending and forming services, but have the capability to machine, weld, and finish a wide range of products to exact customer specifications. This wire basket is used to hold coffee bags in a hot beverage system. To create the basket, quarter hard 304 stainless steel wire is rolled and formed using hand forming and press brake forming methods. We utilize a variety of manual and automated bending processes to achieve the high quality workmanship our customers expect.

Once cut, all wire ends are deburred to produce a high quality finished product. After the individual pieces are formed, the shapes are butt welded to create the basket shape. The basket is then electropolished for a fine surface finish suitable for the food and beverage applications. The finished basket assembly is 7.875" in diameter and 4.2165" in height. Dimensional tolerances are held to ±0.016" for bends and ±1° for angles, as required. Visual and dimensional inspections as well as weld testing are performed to verify conformance to all customer specifications. We manufacture 300 to 500 of these baskets per order with a lead time of 3 to 4 weeks. For additional details regarding this custom wire forming project for the food and beverage industry, see the table below, or contact us directly.
