Helical Springs

Helical springs usually produce higher loads over a smaller deflection range. Our standard helical spring products are produced using Stainless Steel or Elgiloy. MW offers helical spring lengths up to 10' and stocks seven standard thicknesses of Elgiloy to minimize lead times and expensive minimum order quantities. We also supply one lb. coils of raw material for you to roll your own helical springs, if you so desire.

Looking for pre-cut and welding springs? Provide the desired center-line diameter, and we are happy to coil, cut, and weld the helical spring(s) you need using our state-of-the-art Laser Weld Technology.

Looking for Pre-Cut and Welded Radial Springs?

MW produces cut and welded springs for all standard industrial and metric dash sizes for 000 - 400 series spring energizers, including V-spring, Helical, and slant coil springs. Simply provide the dash number you need and we'll cut and weld the spring to the necessary dimensions.

Even if the product you need doesn't fall into the standard dash number range, we still have you covered. Provide the centerline of the spring groove in the seal and we will cut and weld a spring energizer to exactly match the dimensions. Our engineering and manufacturing experts are here to make fabrication and assembly as seamless as possible.
