Custom Compression Springs
Custom Wire technologies manufactures custom compression springs to assist medical device OEMs, designers and researchers in a wide array of medical applications. Compression springs are the most common type of spring that we manufacture. A compression spring the most common type of spring, if you exert force on it, it will compress and push back to try and achieve its original free form. When compressed, custom compression springs store energy that is waiting to be released. With over 20 years of coiling experience, you can trust us as the right partner for your custom compression spring manufacturing needs. Depending on your unique needs, Custom Wire Technologies can help engineer and recommend wire sizes, coiling materials, droop specs and other design or process engineering details.
Compression Spring Options
As experts in compression springs, we can help recommend options for your custom compression coil that will help achieve the desired outcome for your medical device or standalone component. A compression spring is normally wound at a consistent diameter, however we can also manufacture multi-diameter springs, step springs and tapered compression springs. We can also do consistent pitch or variable pitch compression springs. You can also choose from round wire or flat wire made out of stainless steel 304V or nitinol materials. After we have manufactured your custom springs we can also offer a variety of secondary processes such as electropolishing, spring assembly, spring setting and grinding that we provide both in-house and with trusted partners. We manufacture compression springs as stand alone components or as part of larger assemblies.
The majority of our custom compression springs are used in medical applications. These types of applications include tube (catheters) reinforcement, guidewire coils and radiopaque marker coils. The medical community expects high levels of quality and tight adherence to specifications. Our high-precision CNC machinery helps us achieve the diverse needs of the medical device community.
Unifilar or Multifilar
Custom wire technologies recently fitted our precision CNC winding machinery with the ability to manufacture unifilar OR multifilar springs. We have the ability to coil up to 8 wires into a spring for complex medical devices. Having multiple wires on a single spring enables engineers to achieve alternative coil properties and the ability to wrap different types of material onto a single spring design for multi-sensor and multi-signal types of internal monitoring devices.
Contract Custom Springs
Custom wire technologies is a contract manufacturer that manufactures custom compression springs, we do not supply or stock standard compression springs for resale. We do however stock a wide variety of small diameter wire in stainless steel 304V, stainless steel 316LVM and nitinol. Due to having a large stock of compression spring wire sizes, we have the ability to turnaround expedited and fast orders when they are needed. Custom wire is a contract manufacturer who builds custom springs to customer design drawing specifications. At our core, we are spring engineers who enjoy new and challenging manufacturing projects. Please don’t hesitate to contact Custom Wire technologies for help with your next custom compression spring project!
