Custom designed rivets and eyelets used for glass-to-metal seals, electronic, automotive, appliance, medical and fashion applications

Sussex Wire is a specialty cold formed eyelets manufacturer producing custom eyelets (also known as grommets) or cold headed sleeves with unusual features or with exotic materials. Some advantages of engaging with Sussex are that these cold headed eyelets are innately burrless as part of the process, and the process is likewise exceptionally clean; there are no byproducts such as bits and pieces, and there's no waste of expensive materials.

Working with Sussex, companies can obtain a wide variety of uncommon shapes, e.g., out-of-round, varying wall thicknesses, etc. As another example, Sussex can cold form a counterbore within a sleeve shape, providing more strength and often better dimensional accuracy than stamping, milling, machining, hobbing and/or chemical etching. Cold forming is also a better choice when parts are fabricated of exotic and high-cost alloys since there is no waste.
