CNC Wire Forming: Square Light Guards.

From exit signs to emergency light fixtures, wire light guards are often used as security light guards that serve as protective barriers against physical damage to your expensive equipment. 


Whether you have installed one or several sets of emergency lighting on your building, you will want to protect your investment. That’s where wire light guards come in. Here’s how we produce them.

What is Wire Forming?

Wire forming is a process required to bend metal and bring it to customized shapes for manufacturing processes. Custom wire forming is required in various industries, such as aerospace, construction, military and furniture sectors. Today we’re showcasing CNC wire forming for square light guards. By utilizing the latest equipment and technology, (OMCG CNC Wire Bending Machines and AIM CNC Wire Bending Machines) we use a combination of mandrel wire benders, press wire benders, draw wire benders, Vaill wire end formers and Tauring 3 ring wire rollers to produce our finished goods. No matter what shape of metal wire you want, whether it is round, oval, square or rectangle, we can help you meet your needs. Besides bending wires into various types of desirable shapes, we also provide them with fine finishing either with chrome plating, zinc plating or powder coating.
