What manufacturing processes are used to make springs ( as opposed to regular wires ... ) , why are springs so relatively expensive?

Springs are formed from materials with
high yield strength, and often tempered.
Once tempered the increased hardness
causes embrittlement which prevents further
Springs are normally formed from steel alloys
which are malleable while annealed then hardened
in finished form by prolonged heat treatment.
Finished springs should not be exposed to high
Both high yield strength and elastic modulus
are the defining properties of springs.

springs and wires are different things.
wires send electricity along them.
springs also need to have a very specific density, in order to maintain their nstural shape, whereas wires need to be bendable snd keep their shape.
