These special developed springs are standardized compression springs made to cope with heavy loads.

An important point of attention is the norm according to which the springs should be manufactured. The pitfall in here are the colours in which the springs will be painted. There are specific colour schemes for different goods. More information on this topic can be found under ‘Characteristics’.

We do have common die springs at stock, which means we can deliver these quick. Feel free to contact our sales team for questions about our current stock.


A very common application is, as the name already indicates, die-sets of for example stamp and bend tools. Typical for this application is the fact that the springs are built into a small place and that a high cyclical load with a relatively high frequency needs to be captured. The die springs are, next to the application of die-sets, also used as compression springs. This often happens when there are similar conditions as in a die-set, namely, great forces, high frequency and a small installation place.


The material is fixed since the die springs are normalized, to know as the Chromium -Vanadium variants 50CrV4/51CrV4.


The most important characteristic of the die springs is colour coding. This follows from the code (of the goods) according to which the spring has been produced. Two types are the most common, in conformity with European (ISO 10243:2010) or in conformity with American (mostly Raymond®) goods. The overview of the colour codes of the different kinds can be found in the table below. The kinds differ concerning the content in the geometry of the spring body and the wire. Our sales team can provide you with help in relation to finding a replacing die spring according to another code.
