High-Quality, Custom Spring Wire
With Bekaert as your manufacturing partner, you can create springs that align with your project specs and deliver greater performance and durability than conventional spring products. Our wire products are purpose-built to offer the reliability your steering system needs. When performance is a priority, Bekaert is the spring wire manufacturer and supplier you can trust.
Bekaert hard drawn shaped wire consists of unalloyed, patented high-carbon wire that supports the production of highly dynamic springs. Thanks to a high level of process control, the wires feature very consistent edge radii, which prevent cracking at surface stress point and contribute to a longer fatigue-life. The smooth corner edges and stable dimensions of the wire enable a smooth coiling process.
More Design Flexibility
Due to different geometrical force distribution, shaped wire obtains higher stiffness values than round wire. As a result, these wires accommodate greater design flexibility to operate in compact spaces and enable the production of springs with optimal fill factors.
Bekaert can apply a wide range of steel wire sizes, tensile strengths and tempers to create the ideal fatigue properties for your spring design. Our standard corner radii start at 0.15 mm, though we can manufacture smaller sizes upon request. Shapes include squares, rectangles and trapezoids. We can collaborate with your team to develop a special shape if needed.
Once we manufacture your spring wire according to project specs, we'll ship the supplies in your preferred packaging. For hard drawn spring wire, we offer Z-unit coils, metal spools and spider/stem packaging based on your specifications.
