Fort Wayne Metals has changed in many ways since 1970. Starting as a small wire mill dedicated to the medical device industry, we’ve grown to become a manufacturer and provider of high quality material solutions for the medical device industry and demanding industrial applications. Although we have broadened our spectrum over the years, our commitment to the quality of our products and our passion for innovation have remained unchanged.
We never lose sight of the fact that in many cases, lives depend on the performance of our materials. It is how we have become a world leader in the production of precision fine medical grade wire, strands, and cables. Over the years we have accumulated a significant body of knowledge about metals from stainless steel and cobalt-chrome alloys to titanium and Nitinol. We have developed metal-to-metal composites, allowing design engineers to combine the advantages of multiple alloys in a single wire. We study and refine the alloys we work with down to a micro-level, producing cleaner materials and refined grain structure for better fatigue life. We will continue to use our knowledge to develop solutions that can help you give the world better, safer, and more effective medical devices.
So when it’s time to start developing your next application, don’t just think of Fort Wayne Metals as a mere source for wire. Sure, we’ll gladly produce all the wire, strands, and cables you need. But if you would like to take advantage of our portfolio of capabilities, let us help you design your next mechanical assembly,
provide you with metallurgical testing, or develop a custom material to solve a design problem that is beyond the limitation of conventional materials. After all, we don’t just want to be your supplier – we’d like to become your partner in providing solutions to the world.
Our company was founded and continues to grow because of our dedication to the manufacturing of medical grade wire. Our mission is to continually improve the quality of our products, the speed and efficiency with which we respond to customers’ requests, and our level of understanding of the materials we work with and recommend.
