Spring wire industries & applications
Global Leader in Spring Wire
Central Wire UK manufactures spring wire for a variety of industries and applications. Stainless steel, nickel, and specialty alloy spring wire is found in virtually every industry, ranging from architecture and construction to mining and agriculture. Each finished wire possesses unique physical qualities that contribute to the performance of a your finished products. From general usage alloys such as 304 and 316 Stainless Steel, and extreme environment products made from Alloy x750 or other nickel alloys, your application will benefit from the range of properties offered.
See below for an overview of Industries and applications, include how Central Wire UK spring wire is meant to perform in each.

Spring Wire Applications
Springs are a ubiquitous solution in many modern products, from the high strength performance requirements of heavy equipment and transportation, to the rapid flexing and space constraints in electronics, firearms, and other small objects. This creates engineering challenges for manufacturers, and Central Wire UK has the products to solve those problems. High performance spring wire will perform with enough strength, resilience, and environmental resistance in all sizes, applications, and end products.
Central Wire UK has the capability to produce spring wire for any application, as the process is controlled from rod breakdown to finished packaging under one roof. This means we can manufacture a specialty solution to meet the needs of your specific application or industry. Whether you are replacing an existing system or crafting a new product, we can customize a solution to exceed your requirements.
Spring Wire Industries
The strength and consistency of spring wire plays a pivotal role in the agriculture and food processing industries. Out in the field, wire is used for livestock fencing, gates, and inside harvesting equipment. Inside processing facilities, wire is used for conveyor belts that sort and prepare products, for trays and grates in sterilized locations, and to build the processing equipment itself.
Stainless steel wire adds both aesthetic and functional value to architecture. Stainless steel is a durable material able to withstand temperature changes and moisture, making it an affective choice for interior and exterior applications. Its “stainless” finish also stays vibrant with age, which keeps structures looking new and modern.
Marine industries and applications demand corrosion resistant products that withstand salt and moisture exposure. That is why 300 series stainless steel is one of the most common materials used to produce spring wire for shoreline and open sea products.
The mining industry relies on products and materials that are engineered to withstand crushing forces, intense vibration, and heavy weight. That is why modern mining, mineral processing, and sorting products are typically manufactured using stainless steel or nickel alloy spring wire. The complex equipment needed to extract and sort minerals are highly customizable to meet the needs of specific applications, and the environment in which that equipment will be expected to perform.
We manufacture high quality spring wire for use in critical nuclear applications. For components experiencing exposure to high heat or corrosives, we recommend using Inconel® or Nitronic series nickel alloys. These materials are engineered to withstand harsh conditions without failure, and selecting them for your wire ensures durability and longevity.
Oil and Gas
The oil and gas industry demands products that can withstand the rigors of challenging work conditions. That is why Central Wire UK offers spring wire in a broad range of materials including traditional 300 series stainless steel, in addition to other high-strength alloys.
We have the capability to accurately, consistently, and precisely manufacture spring wire. These products are often used for petrochemical equipment because they can be customized to exacting customer specifications. Whether working in small spaces to capture contaminants and particles, or large spaces to handle large volumes of liquid, we can produce wire to satisfy the performance needs in those environments.
