Design springs where you want, when you want with the web-based Spring Calculator from IST - the Institute of Spring Technology

IST has always been a leader in spring design software, with our current version of Spring Calculator Professional being the world leader and culmination of decades of evolution. We were also the first to launch a fully-functional online calculator containing a wide range of performance data from specifications around the world. This software has calcalated well over 100,000 springs since its launch in 2011.


However, from December 2020 we will be terminating this online calculator service and currently no longer accepting renewals.

If you are not already aware, IST offer both hosted and non-hosted versions of Spring Calculator Professional (SCP) and going forward we would like to migrate your account to one of these. The SCP software offers far more features and functionality than Spring Calculator Online with a much larger database of materials and performance data, more flexible design-based calculations plus many other advantages – Find out more about these features. If you’re unsure if this is right for you, we encourage you to download a 7 Day Free Trial.

To discuss your options further, or if you are new customer, please email Holly Greenhalgh at holly@ist.org.uk

Thank you
