Raw Material for Spring & Stamping

Compression, extension, torsion, double torsion, draw bar and flat springs are made from a variety of materials. Shaped wire can also be utilized in the manufacturing of springs, although it is a more expensive option. Stampings such as:  brackets, bushings, clamps, collars, connectors , flat springs, friction plates, limiters, retainers, shims, shunts, spring clips, wire forms, terminals, etc. materials are also simular to spring options but are in strip form.  Please send your print so we can get a quote to you.

The materials we typically manufacture our springs, wire forms and stampings from are: 

    • Hard Drawn Spring Wire- A popular spring wire for commercial mechanical applications, it is a medium carbon, cold drawn wire.
    • Galvanized Hard Drawn Spring Wire- Hard drawn wire that has been pre-coated/galvanized; no need for plating. It is good for spring designs that will have a high propensity to tangle or are delicate as the plating process is a bulk operation. Rack plating is an alternate but will be more expensive.
    • Music Spring Wire- A tough material with a high tensile strength that can withstand higher stress under repeated loading than other materials. It has an excellent fatigue life and can be plated after forming.
    • Galvanized Music Spring Wire- Music wire that has been pre-coated/galvanized; no need for plating. It is good for spring designs that will have a high propensity to tangle or are delicate as the plating process is a bulk operation. Rack plating is an alternate, but will be more expensive.
    • Oil Tempered Spring Wire- Cold drawn and heat treated before coiling. Subject to hydrogen embrittlement if plated.
    • Stainless Steel Spring Wire- A general purpose spring wire with good tensile strength and high corrosion resistance.
    • Phos Bronze Spring Wire- The most popular copper-based wire, providing good corrosion resistance and electrical conductivity.
    • Beryllium Copper Spring Wire- Good corrosion resistance and electric conductivity. 
    • Chrome Vanadium Spring Wire- Cold drawn and heat treated before fabrication. Suited for high stresses and loads.
    • Chrome Silicon Spring Wire- Cold drawn and heat treated before fabrication. Used for applications that are exposed to considerable shock and extreme heat
