The signs your springs are about to fail
Corrosion is the deterioration of a metal surface because of an electrochemical process between it and the surrounding environment. But while this is a good definition of what corrosion is, it does not explain why this is a problem for springs. Interestingly, corrosion is not usually the sole cause (more...)

TFC to offer new product solutions at the Engineering Design Show
From October 19 to 20, fastener and bespoke supply chain solutions provider TFC will be exhibiting at the Engineering Design Show in Coventry at the Building Society Arena. On stand F44, TFC will showcase two brand-new product solutions — the ARaymond VDA low-push connector and the new Smalley (more...)
Copper is an important metal in many industries, including in spring manufacturing. Its many properties make it useful for a range of applications and it can be alloyed with other metals to create materials with enhanced features. Let’s take a look at some of those properties to understand (more...)
Wave springs and round wire coil springs compared
Crest-to-Crest wave springs can offer similar loads and deflection to traditional coil springs, but at around half the height. They can reduce axial space by up to 50 per cent, leading to an overall decrease in assembly size, weight and cost. For design engineers looking to utilise these benefits (more...)
Material considerations for spring applications
There are a number of factors to take into account in a spring’s application before going ahead with the design and manufacturing process, as Airedale Springs chairman, Tim Parkinson, explains. A spring’s environment will hugely impact the materials chosen. It's crucial to consider the (more...)
Elesa announces new wire rope arrival to vibration damper family
Elesa has announced the new arrival of a wire rope series to its otherwise rubber-based vibration damper family of mounts and buffers, used throughout industry for isolation of equipment where vibration is a major issue. The new AVC series incorporates AISI 316 stainless steel wound into helical (more...)
Back to basics on extension springs
Extension springs – otherwise known as tension springs – are indispensable to many operations in vehicle applications and elsewhere, for example as returns on engine controls, also farm machinery, horse boxes, caravans, trampolines, garage doors, medical devices, toys, washing machines (more...)
How can manufacturers future proof against the pandemic?
The manufacturing industry, like all sectors, was hit hard by the Covid-19 pandemic, from supply chains to the factory floor. Tim Parkinson, Airedale Springs’ chairman, believes that something has to change now, so that manufacturers can prevent a similar situation from happening again. He (more...)
Supply chain: the pressure’s on
Keith Kentish, group commercial director at TFC shares guidance for manufacturers on supply chain management, while the industry is under the microscope. The phrase “just in time supply chain” probably meant nothing to the average consumer before the coronavirus pandemic. However, (more...)
Custom Wire Forms, a standard custom offer by Lee Spring
Wire forms typically are parts made from wire that is bent to have specific angles and lengths. They are well known as simple, quick to install and low cost, often as permanent but easily removable devices. These simple wire forms are found in electrical equipment, vehicles of all types, machines (more...)
