Compression, extension, torsion, double torsion, and wire forms.
A variety of questions must be asked and answered to arrive at the best spring material including: The environment in which the product operates; The frequency of cycles and the amount of deflection; The ratio of spring or wire form cost in relation to the overall project; The expected life of the product.

Mollificio Astigiano has the capacity to manufacture springs from 0.20 mm to 0.12 mm in wire diameter.
We manufacture springs for a variety of industries, including: Energy and Power Generation Railroad; Valve and Regulator Food & Beverage; Shock and Vibration Medical equipment; Agricultural...and many others!
We work with customers all the time, often making suggestions in an effort to improve their design and the fit or function of the part. We may also suggest changing the design in order to facilitate assembly or reduce the cost of production.
Hot-wound springs are made from larger diameter material. Due to the size of the wire, the spring must be heated up to a hot state, then formed using an annealed (soft) material, and heat-treated afterwards. Cold-wound springs are smaller in size and are formed in a cold state using pre-tempered material. [...]
