Oil Tempered (O.T.M.B.) Springs

Compression SpringsSmall and large oil tempered (O.T.M.B.) wire springs manufactured for a variety of applications.

For over 50 years, M & S Spring Company has manufactured oil tempered springs in various shapes including torsion, compression, and extension springs. Oil tempered wire is cold drawn, as well as heat treated before fabrication. Oil tempered springs have good shock and impact resistances, along with good fatigue properties and are also economical and ideal for cyclical properties.. M & S Spring’s oil tempered springs meet ASTM A229 standards
