Sussex Wire specializes in the design and manufacture of custom, cold-formed and cold headed parts in mini- and micro-geometries to complex and precise tolerances.

Mechanical design and assembly firms turn to Sussex Wire for their most advanced near-net-shape part requirements to eliminate material scrap, increase mechanical strength and reduce costly secondary and assembly operations. Headquartered in Eastern Pennsylvania, Sussex is one of the leading cold heading manufacturers globally for precision miniature and micro metal components and cold-headed parts. We employ state-of-the-art proprietary part progression and tool design modeling techniques developed over 40+ years of company experience to produce optimal component formation and extended die life management.

Sussex Wire can produce radii, tapers, eyelets, knurls, edge break and complex geometric shapes with control tolerances to +/-.0005”. We are known for these manufacturing operations:
  • Cold Heading & Forging
  • Roll Forming
  • Coining
  • EDM
  Materials include:
  • Aluminum
  • Copper core steels and alloys
  • Stainless, Inconel & Hastelloy
  • Kovar
  • 52 & 42 alloy
  • Tantalum
  • Molybdenum
  • Platinum, palladium, silver and other exotic alloys

Sussex Wire’s manufacturing and design engineers use vertically integrated capabilities such as finite element analysis, prototyping, tooling, custom turn-key manufacturing technology and cellular work centers to produce small specialized parts. Examples include cold headed pins, glass-to-metal pins, eyelets, electrical contacts, micro valve parts and other precision metal components, all with tolerances often beyond the capabilities of traditional machining or stamping parts manufacturers. Sussex Wire's customers depend on our unique process design, LEAN manufacturing, Automated Optical Inspection (AOI) and six-sigma quality system to aid customers in keeping automated guidance systems on target, medical implants 100% reliable, automotive airbags failsafe, defense products fully compliant with mil-spec standards, and for delivering critical functionality to many other applications.

Sussex Wire applies cold-forming and roll-forming manufacturing techniques to shape metal wire and specialty alloys at room temperatures into highly engineered, precision, micro-miniature components in a more cost-effective manner than traditional machining, stamping, metal injection molding and casting methods can. Sussex serves global blue chip customers who operate in the medical, electronics, computer, automotive, appliance, semiconductor, and glass to metal seal industries.

At Sussex Wire, our people make the difference. We are passionate for our customers’ success, which we achieve through open collaboration, thoughtful and disciplined execution, a commitment to continuous improvement and a determination to win.
