Die springs are strong concentrated hybrid versions of compression springs, made with rectangular wire instead of its circular counterparts. They are also referred to as ‘high force compression springs’ because they are specially designed to handle a great amount of environmental stress.
As high force compression springs, a Die spring can take a higher load when required, approximately 30% more than a standard compression spring it can also handle temperatures up to 475 degrees. This extra resistance to environmental stresses gives greater strength and decreased load-loss compared to traditional compressions springs. Uses of die springs include clutches, brakes and other heavy machinery applications.
Here at European Springs we have engineered our Die springs to consistently give predetermined physical force at certain compressions, hence why they are the perfect components in punching and pressing machines. Die springs are designed to be loaded in excess to cover the requirements of perforating material, in some instances metals.
Die springs are engineered to give predetermined pressure at a given compression reliably and consistently. Our Die springs come with either closed or open ends and we also colour code according to strength and we advise you to consult our spring catalogue to ensure you choose the correct spring strength for your requirement.
At European Springs we are dedicated to providing customers with springs of the highest possible quality. Our extensive catalogue includes a wide range of standard die springs which can be delivered to you very quickly. In addition to this, we offer custom die spring manufacture, so if you cannot find the specific requirement you need then please do not hesitate to contact a member of our design team who will be happy to provide you with the information that you need.
