But what kind of things require fine wire within these different industries?
In this post, we'll explore how our fine wire is essential in the Medical, Aerospace, and Music industry.


Equipment for the medical industry requires extremely fine and accurate internal wiring for the tool to function properly and operations to go over smoothly. Our fine wire is designed to withstand sterilization methods, is extremely flexible, versatile, and can endure long periods of heavy usage. With CWI's state-of-the-art machinery, we can make wire with unmatched precision. The wire is then tested to be 100% sure that it meets our customer's expectations.

We make fine wire to be used in implants, probes, neural prosthesis, muscle stimulation, pain control, cardiac equipment, catheters, and more. The list goes on and on as more innovative technology is being introduced to the industry day by day.

Round, flat, core, braiding, and staple wires are commonly used in medical technology. Each application is meant for different equipment and CWI can help you select the proper wire type for your operation. Visit our site for inquiries.



As pictured on the right, there are many different uses for fine wire in the aerospace industry. Some of the main ones are communication, probes, navigation, flight controls, collision avoidance, and weather systems. All require exacting fine wire to make this kind of sophisticated machinery work seamlessly. At CWI we can ensure the quality of the products you need.

We offer a wide range of alloys such as stainless, nickel, copper, zinc, and even specialty alloys that can be found here.

Music wire or wrapping wire is a fine wire that can be used for musical instruments. We can make our music wire out of high-quality material that meets your exact specifications for the instrument you need it for. They're commonly used for guitars and other bowed instruments. 
The strings play a major role in the sound that the instrument creates. The string’s base alloy, wire shape, and coating, also affect the subtle nuances of the sound produced. These desired tonal features are a critical part of the string’s design.
With over 60 years in the wire industry, our team can make sure you get your wire according to your specifications and standards in a timely fashion. Our wire can be as fine as .001mm and is tested before it leaves the facility.
As you can see, Central Wire Industries offers a variety of high-quality fine wire that can be specified to your standards and the many applications that require it. Some of the different wires we provide include weaving, knitting, braiding, cabling, locking, and spring wire. CWI can package your wire in several different forms such as spool, reel, coil, bobbin, carrier, and custom packaging provided from as low as 1lb to 200lb tapered plastics. For inquiries, you can connect with a member of our sales team to determine which fine wire best fits your specific project.
