Harness stored energy that ensures critical performance requirements with precision engineered springs for medical devices.

Custom springs for medical devices including compression, extension, and torsion springs

A demanding application requires a custom spring solution engineered for consistent performance. From critical medical instruments, pharmaceutical delivery systems, robotic platforms, orthopaedic implants or other system designs, reliability is the only option. MW Life Sciences has five decades of experience delivering precision high quality springs. We manufacture custom springs for medical devices with a wide variety of applications including:

  • Compression springs
  • Extension springs
  • Torsion springs
  • Specialty spring components

We treat every spring design request as the unique challenge it presents. We work closely with you to understand what the device performance characteristics are and the results you are trying to achieve, so that we know how to deliver the best reliability in the product. Our extensive engineering team can recommend alternative materials, design considerations that eliminate tangling, packaging solutions, etc. to achieve the required performance attributes of the device or the production line, while ensuring your budget parameters are met.
