Oil Tempered Wire Forming

Oil-tempered wire springs are made of a strong yet flexible carbon steel wire that’s often called upon to support heavy loads. This carbon steel wire type is heat-treated using oil. 

Enhance your application with oil-tempered wire forming from Stalder Spring Works. We’re ISO 9001:2015-certified spring manufacturer dedicated to supplying custom oil-tempered springs quickly and affordably. 

Benefits of oil-tempered wire

Oil-tempered wire is manufactured using a precision oil tempering process. In this activity, the wire is heated to extreme temperatures before being cooled with oil. The result is a finished product that exhibits high strength without being too brittle. 

This wire type is widely used for springs that require resistance to fatigue, heat, and permanent set-in fatigue. Here are common characteristics of oil-tempered wire: 

  • High strength
  • Strong impact resistance
  • Durable
  • Malleable
  • Good shock absorption
  • Inexpensive
  • Easy to work with

Custom oil-tempered springs are easy to bend without losing strength or durability. They’re also a cost-effective, high-value solution for a range of applications that incorporate springs. Uses for oil-tempered wire include:

  • Garage doors
  • Card wire
  • Clutch springs
  • Automotive parts
  • Wire forms
  • Textile equipment
  • Valve springs
  • Brush wire
  • Loom springs
