How to Measure Springs
Featured Product from Gardner Spring, Inc.
These are the most common types of springs, and the measurements/speciifations needed to match a customer’s part with a stock item. These dimensions are also necessary for us to make a custom part if a stock size is not available.
- Carbon Steel
- Stainless Steel
- MBHD (“plain” carbon)
- 300 Series (301/302/304/313)
- Music Wire (for precision parts)
- 17-7 PH
- 1074/1075 (for disc springs)
Note that we can make a part from a physical sample, but sometimes the customer may not be willing to send it, or it may be broken. While we like to have the sample for a custom order, we can accurately manufacture the spring if we have as much dimensional data as possible.
