Maraging Steel Springs

Coiling Technologies is a certified custom industrial spring manufacturer. We create custom sizes for a variety of springs with applications in heavier industries, such as military or oil & gas. Our springs have proven to be effective and high-quality through years of usage in harsh conditions.

Whatever the demand, Coiling Technologies will meet it with the highest performance parts, made from the best materials, such as Maraging C300 and C350. We produce products for industrial use, so we make sure our springs are reliable and durable.

Maraging Steel Features & Benefits

Maraging steels are carbon-free iron-nickel alloys with the addition of cobalt strengthen steel (C-type), molybdenum, titanium, and aluminum. Maraging steels belong to the category of ultra-high-strength materials which have excellent toughness properties. C300 grade has tensile strength properties up to 300 Ksi and C350 is up to 350 Ksi while still retaining excellent ductility.

The main benefit of this material is that it is an easily shaped hard steel containing many other useful properties.

Uses of Maraging Steel Springs

It is resistant to crack propagation and used in aircraft or high-performance racing springs

C350 alloy is heavier and harder than C300 due to higher amounts of Cobalt. Used in high end military applications, such as, recoil springs for heavy guns.


Maraging C300 & C350 Spring Applications

Maraging steel is commonly used in military defense applications and high-performance gears and shafting. Our springs are used as valve springs in oil pumps, firearms parts, and torsion springs in aerospace equipment. Maraging steel springs are used frequently when there is a need for a high strength-to-weight ratio. Applicable standards for Maraging Steels are MIL-S-46850D,

Applications for these springs include:

  • Recoil and torsion for military tanks
  • High-Performance Vehicle suspensions
  • Oil and petroleum pumps and equipment
  • Heavy machinery
