Music wire

Music wire makes for strong garage door and mechanical springs. Made from a cold drawn material comprised of a strong and uniform tensile strength, the result is a high-quality spring. This type of wire is often regarded as one of the toughest steel options with impressive fatigue properties, which is best for small springs. Its high strength and heavy load ability make it a reliable and desirable custom spring choice.

Music wire is extremely versatile. Made from high carbon-based steel, it’s ideal for high-stress applications. This is where the name “music wire” comes in. This type of wire is typically used for piano strings. With regards to this musical application, the wire showcases its strength by stretching under tremendous amounts of tension as hammers simultaneously strike the wired to create music. This application of music wire illustrates just how strong it is.

Custom Music Wire Benefits

Pushing past music wire’s ability to withstand high-stress tension due to its tensile strength, music wire is also surprisingly bendable. This characteristic of this kind of wire lends itself well to music wire spring manufacturers, making this material is an unmatched choice for coiled springs. Cost is yet another benefit of choosing music wire springs. They are typically less expensive, particularly when the required diameter is on the smaller side.

What Are Common Uses for Music Wire?

Due to music wire’s strong tensile properties, it’s used for a wide range of industrial, commercial and personal purposes. Such applications include spring loaded windows, surgical tools, fishing lures, cheese slicers and, of course, garage springs.
