Die Spring Manufacturing

MW manufactures a variety of industrial die springs that are typically used in die machinery. Our die springs are ideal for applications that require high-static or shock-load stresses or when users need to maximize cycle-life. If oil-tempered springs are held to a maximum deflection of 25% of their length, you can expect a long service life.

Color Coding - Chrome Alloy

Die springs of oil-tempered material are only available as unfinished. Chrome-alloy die springs can be custom ordered with finishes such as powder coating or nickel plating. For unfinished die springs, a color-coding system is used for visual identification of the spring’s work range and to prevent errors in spring selection and installation.

Chrome Alloy Color Codes

  • Medium Duty – Red
  • Heavy Duty – Gold
  • Extra-Heavy Duty - Green

Color Coding - Chrome Silicon

Our oil-tempered die springs are unfinished. We offer a color coding system of light coating of water-based paint. A thin coating of the pain is applied to make it easy to identify your die spring's work range, helping reduce mistakes in selection and installation.
