Often the spring component of an assembly is left until all the other parts have been engineered. This can result in an undesirable spring design that is unfortunately necessary in order to meet the physical parameters of space, etc. We will help you with your spring design before the assembly is completed and restrictions make it impossible to make a well designed spring that will work best for you. Talk to us first for our input into your design. We will be glad to sign a non-disclosure agreement with you and help you with your product design both for cost savings and for dependability.
Factors that influence the spring design are physical requirements, temperature, corrosive conditions, function, finish, and of course, cost. Materials for compression, extension, torsion and leaf springs run the full spectrum from music and carbon steel wire to many stainless steel types, nickel alloys, beryllium copper, phosphor bronze, and inconel.
