New build or replacement part: why compromise?
What happens when an internet search doesn’t find the component you want? Happily, when it comes to springs, there’s no need to compromise on a nearest best component. Do you remember what it was like before Google and the internet allowed us to search for anything we wanted to know (more...)
Wave springs and retaining rings meet the needs of medical tasks
Medical equipment manufacturers are increasingly asking the question: “Where can I find the compact components I need to support my designs?” Wave springs are produced to reliably satisfy precise operating conditions which make them ideal for accurate load, and the tight radial and (more...)
Lee Spring highlights “Global Flexibility” package at Southern Manufacturing
Every year at Farnborough, the Southern Manufacturing Show brings together a wonderful representation of the UK’s manufacturing industry – exactly the environment where Lee Spring has been at home for 40 years in the UK and 100 years overall. This dedication to customer service has led (more...)
Material developments for large engine springs
Developments in production techniques have recently resulted in high quality Silicon Chrome Vanadium becoming available in larger wire diameters. The tensile strength is approximately 10% higher than conventional silicon chrome wires, allowing for a more highly stressed springs with 10% lower mass (more...)
High performance spring meets aerospace challenge
A spring for a safety critical aerospace non-return valve presented new challenges to the design and production team at William Hughes. The application required a large spring which had to be manufactured in a specialist aerospace certified material – which has a high spring index making it (more...)
Interlocking spiral retaining rings
Rotor Clip engineers have showcased their abilities to create custom parts and tools by introducing an interlocking spiral retaining ring. Utilising a standard DCR non-interlocking spiral ring, Rotor Clip was able to engineer a custom tooling process to produce a new DCR-LS interlocking spiral (more...)
New wire forms and constant force springs
Constant Force Springs from Lee Spring offer an excellent mechanism for applications where a constant load is required. Some of the many applications of constant force springs are in counterbalances, door closers, cable retractors, hose retrievers, tool head returns, cabinet and furniture (more...)
The many uses of wire forms
Springs are widely used in applications across the many engineering and manufacturing sectors. So we might think we know all there is to know about them. But, as the experts at European Springs point out, wire forms are too often forgotten or overlooked. A wire form is a piece of spring metal wire (more...)
Industrial shock absorbers are self-compensating
A comprehensive range of industrial shock absorbers has been released, designed to help improve product handling in manufacturing applications and in automated package handling. The shock absorbers are designed to smoothly and gradually stop their movement without causing bounce-back or other (more...)
Spring formed components
The fourslide process from Lee Spring delivers stamped and formed flat springs to custom designs and for extended runs of manufacturer standards. Fourslide manufactured parts find application throughout manufacturing across industries such as electronics, aerospace, automation, white goods, (more...)
