Custom Wire Springs

Spring Works Utah Inc.

Spring Works Utah Inc. is a leading supplier of custom wire springs to manufacturers worldwide. We specialize in compression springs, extension springs, torsion springs, double torsion springs, magazine springs, and many more to the highest quality standards.

Compression Springs

Wire Springs

A compression spring is designed to operate with a compression load, so the spring gets shorter as the load is applied to it.  A compression spring is an open-coil helical spring that offers resistance to a comprehensive force applied axially. They are usually coiled at a constant diameter, though they can be coiled in other needed forms such as conical springs, concave (barrel springs), convex (hourglass springs), or various combinations of these.

Helical Springs

Wire Springs

Helical spring, is a mechanical device which is typically used to store energy and subsequently release it, to absorb shock, or to maintain a force between contacting surfaces. In manufacturing coiled helical spring, the spring wire is wrapped around a mandrel that serves as a support; when seamless tubing is being extruded, a long mandrel forms the internal diameter.

Extension Springs

Wire Springs

Extension springs are tightly coiled springs designed to resist a tensile, or stretching, force. When pulled outward, the spring will attempt to pull back into its coil. As the spring is extended further, its resistance increases. An extension spring can both absorb and store energy, as well as create resistance to a pulling force. Extension springs often have a loop or hook at the end for mounting the spring. An extension spring is in most cases mounted on other objects that are in motion. When these objects move, the extension spring attempts to bring the objects back to their start position.

Magazine Springs

Wire Springs

A compression spring with oval or rectangular shaped coils placed inside of the magazine or charger of a firearm. A magazine spring's function is to push up the bullets or rounds to be placed into the chamber. Magazine springs are typical for most guns but certain types of firearms require different lengths, forces, and amount of coils. Magazine spring in the rifle will be longer than that of a hand gun and will probably have some other dimensional differences in design. Other differences may apply on different firearms depending on how the magazine spring will be positioned and how much rate and travel it will need.

Torsion Springs

Wire Springs

A torsion spring is a spring that works by torsion or twisting; that is, a flexible elastic object that stores mechanical energy when it is twisted. When it is twisted, it exerts a force (actually torque) in the opposite direction, proportional to the amount (angle) it is twisted. There are two types. A torsion bar is a straight bar of metal or rubber that is subjected to twisting (shear stress) about its axis by torque applied at its ends. A more delicate form used in sensitive instruments, called a torsion fiber consists of a fiber of silk, glass, or quartz under tension, that is twisted about its axis.

Coil Springs

Wire Springs

A coil spring, also known as a helical spring, is a mechanical device, which is typically used to store energy due to resilience and subsequently release it, to absorb shock, or to maintain a force between contacting surfaces. They are made of an elastic material formed into the shape of a helix which returns to its natural length when unloaded.

Double Torsion Springs

Wire Springs

Double-bodied Torsion Springs are designed using the same methods as for single-bodied Torsion Springs. The rate for a double Torsion Spring is equal to the sum of the rates for each component. For the same wire diameter, coil diameter and wire length, double Torsion Springs have rates four times those of single-bodied types. Double Torsion Springs should be designed so they are coiled out from the center rather than in from the ends.

Heavy Duty Springs

Wire Springs

Heavy duty springs are compression, extension, or torsion springs with a great amount of force. They have large wire diameters from 1/4" (inch) to 1" (inch) in thickness and are required when the spring needs to support a large amount of load in a mechanism.

Conical Springs

Wire Springs

Conical (Tapered), Hourglass and Barrel-shaped springs are used in applications requiring a low solid height, increased lateral stability or resistance to surging. Conical springs can be designed so that each coil nests wholly or partly into an adjacent coil. Solid height can be as low as one wire diameter. Rate for conical springs usually increases with deflection because the number of active coils decreases progressively as the spring approaches solid. By varying the pitch, conical springs can be designed to have a uniform rate. Rate for conical springs is calculated, as indicated previously, by considering the spring as many springs in series.

Garter Springs

Wire Springs

A garter spring is a coiled steel spring that is connected at each end to create a circular shape, and is used in oil seals, shaft seals, belt-driven motors, and electrical connectors. Compression garter springs exert outward radial forces, while extension garter springs exert inward radial forces.

Tapered Springs

Wire Springs

A Tapered Spring is a cone shaped compression spring that has a tapered body with a large outer diameter at the base and a small outer diameter a the top. These stock conical (tapered) springs are made this way to provide stability when a regular compression spring buckles or bends.Tapered springs are used in applications requiring a low solid height, increased lateral stability or resistance to surging. Hourglass springs can be designed so that each coil nests wholly or partly into an adjacent coil. Solid height can be as low as one wire diameter.

Die Springs

Wire Springs

In applications where space is limited and particularly where solid height is restricted, springs designed from rectangular or keystoned wire are often selected. These springs are commonly referred to as die springs. Springs made from rectangular wire, with the width of the rectangle perpendicular to the spring axis, store more energy in a smaller space than equivalent round wire springs.

Micro Springs

Wire Springs

A Micro Spring is an elastic object used to store mechanical energy. Micro Springs are usually made out of spring steel. There are a large number of Micro spring designs; in everyday usage the term often refers to small coil springs. Micro springs can be wound from pre-hardened stock, while larger ones are made from annealed steel and hardened after fabrication. Some non-ferrous metals are also used including phosphor bronze and titanium for parts requiring corrosion resistance and beryllium copper for springs carrying electrical current (because of its low electrical resistance).

Hourglass Springs

Wire Springs

Hourglass shaped springs are used in applications requiring a low solid height, increased lateral stability or resistance to surging. Hourglass springs can be designed so that each coil nests wholly or partly into an adjacent coil. Solid height can be as low as one wire diameter.

Mechanical Springs

Wire Springs

A heavy-duty helical spring designed for compression and tension. A spring is an elastic object used to store mechanical energy. Springs are usually made out of spring steel. There are a large number of spring designs; in everyday usage the term often refers to coil springs. A metal wire spring that functions in a spring mechanism that compresses, extends,rotates, slides, pulls and exerts force when an equal or greater force is applied. A spring mechanism can exert pressure, rotational force or pulling strength in a variety of ways. For help with mechanical spring design use our spring calculator.

Barrel Springs

Wire Springs

Barrel Springs are used in applications requiring a low solid height, increased lateral stability or resistance to surging. Hourglass springs can be designed so that each coil nests wholly or partly into an adjacent coil. Solid height can be as low as one wire diameter. Rate for barrel springs usually increases with deflection because the number of active coils decreases progressively as the spring approaches solid. By varying the pitch, barrel springs can be designed to have a uniform rate. Rate for barrel springs is calculated, as indicated previously, by considering the spring as many springs in series.
