How to avoid the rust problem of wire forming springs?

Wire forming springs are easily affected by oxidation and corrosion during use, resulting in rust on the surface of the spring, which seriously affects the service life and performance of the spring. To avoid this problem, the following measures can be taken:

Choose high-quality materials to ensure the corrosion resistance of the spring.

During the production process, the wire needs to be subjected to a strict surface treatment to prevent oxidation and corrosion.

Before using springs, they need to be treated with anti-corrosion, such as a layer of anti-rust oil or paint.

In the process of using the spring, it is necessary to regularly maintain and care for the spring, and clean and apply rust inhibitor in time.

Formed and Stamped Wire Forms

Formed and stamped wire forms may require welding, stamping, threading or other processes in their production. At Elgin, we have the presses and automation necessary to produce the formed and stamped wire forms to meet your needs.

Wire Forming Applications

Linear spring manufacturing process

Wire springs are manufactured using wire forming machines. These machines gradually shape the wire and form the desired design by bending the wire around a mechanical tool. Wire forming operations can be controlled manually or by computer numerical control (CNC) equipment, depending on the precision and accuracy required. In addition to forming, other manufacturing processes such as cold heading, 3D bending, spot welding, stamping and finishing can be used in the production of springs and wires to ensure that the final part is compliant.

Frequently Asked Question

Do you have any question?

Spring wire is a product with very specific technology. It has a strong structure and a good balance of flexibility and tensile strength. According to different surface treatments, spring wire can be divided into: Hot-dipped galvanized wire, electro-galvanized spring wire and PVC coated spring wire.

Wire forming is the process of taking wire, either from a spooled coil or blank length, and bending it into specific forms. Wire forms are extremely flexible, allowing them to be modified into a wide variety of shapes and specific configurations.

A wire forming CNC machine utilizes a system of uncoiling the raw material from a spool and running it through a series of opposing wheels that are used to straighten the wire prior to the shaping and forming process.

A wire forming spring is a spring used to store mechanical energy, usually made of steel wire or other metal wire. These wires are processed by forming machines to form springs of various shapes, such as spiral, lock, cone, etc. Wire forming springs are characterized by high forming accuracy, low manufacturing costs, and a wide range of applications, which can meet a variety of different mechanical and industrial needs.

Wire forming springs are widely used in various mechanical and industrial equipment, such as automobiles, power tools, home appliances, toys, clocks and watches, medical equipment, etc.
