    Spring Training

    The proper design of extension, compression and torsion springs requires a knowledge of both the limitations and potentials of available materials, together with simple formulas. Because spring theory is usually developed on the basis of a spring rate (or gradient), the formula for spring rate is the most widely used in spring design.

    The design formula for the various types of springs are presented in their own sections. Materials and physical properties that are common to every spring configuration is shown here.


    There are four common types of materials used in spring manufacturing:

    • Music Wire is the most common and inexpensive spring material. They provide uniform tensile strength for a high quality spring. Music Wire can be used in applications up to 250° F or 121° Celsius.
    • Chrome Vanadium is cold drawn and heat treated. Used for shock loads and slightly elevated temperatures to 425° F or 219° Celsius.
    • Chrome Silicon with similar properties to Chrome Vanadium can withstand temperatures up to 475° F or 246° Celsius.
    • Stainless Steel Type 302 Provides a more durable spring ideal for harsh environmental conditions where corrosion and high temperatures are expected. These spring are not as strong as those made from Music Wire. When using this stainless, multiply rate and load by 0.833. Stainless springs are recommended for applications up to 500° F or 260° Celsius.
    • Stainless Steel Type 17-7 is a high strength and provides general purpose corrosion resistance. Precipitation hardening after fabrication provides similar strength to music wire. The design temperature for this material should not exceed 650° F or 343° Celsius
