Stock Music Wire Compression Springs
Definition: Round wire coil springs which are manufactured using Music Wire ASTM A228 and kept in stock for retail sales.
Compression springs are the most popular type of wire springs. They are manufactured in several material types but the most popular and economical would be Music Wire ASTM A228 also known as Spring Steel.
Music Wire is made from various components. These include Carbon (C) and Manganese (Mn). It is able to withstand up to 250º Fahrenheit and 121º Celsius. It has a higher tensile strength than stainless steel for it is a harder material type. Music wire compression springs are to be used in neutral environments without corrosion and with a room temperature lower than the previously stated. In case you may need for them to resist some corrosion, there is the option of having them plated. Take a look at the properties of different material types by clicking here.
Find stock music wire compression springs at The Spring Store where you’re able to use our Compression Spring Finder. Spring Finder is a search engine tool within our database which allows you to search for a spring based on your dimension tolerance ranges. Your dimension inputs may be in either the english or metric units of measurement. The option to select a material type is in the advanced search where you’re also provided with more input fields to make a more specific search. The material types you’re able to pick from when it comes to stock compression springs are Music Wire ASTM A228, Hard Drawn ASTM A227, Chrome Silicon A401, Oil Tempered MB A229, Stainless Steel 302 A313, Stainless Steel 17-7 A313, Beryllium Copper B197, and Phosphor Bronze Grade A B159. Choosing the option “MW - Music Wire” will allow you to search for stock music wire compression springs only.

If you don’t have a design yet, you are also able to generate a music wire compression spring design on both acxesspring.com and thespringstore.com.
Spring Creator is an online spring calculation software which works for three different spring types: compression springs, extension springs, and torsion springs. Our compression spring calculator allows you to generate a music wire compression springs design. Several spring calculation formulas make part of Spring Creator’s software so the only values you are required to enter are its physical dimensions. If you don’t know how to measure your spring or how to identify the dimensions required, you may take a look at the “How to Measure Compression Springs” diagram to the right of the input box where you may also select a specific compression spring end type. Our spring calculator includes all of the material types included in our stock music wire compression spring finder along with a couple more specialty material types such as Stainless Steel 316 A316 and Carbon Valve A230. The tensile strength of each wire diameter for each material type is also indexed into Spring Creator’s formulas so your calculations regarding force and elasticity are accurate. The compression spring calculator will provide you with stock music wire compression spring suggestions as well as an instant quote in case you’re interested in ordering large production quantities or you weren’t able to find anything in stock. Generate a live blueprint of your design which will show an accurate drawing of what your spring will look like along with a full spring analysis and your custom quote.
