Spring calculator now covers non-standard springs
ack in August 2019 the Institute of Spring Technology (IST) released the completely re-written Spring Calculator Professional (SCP). Since the launch of SCP Version 2 the software team has been working hard to add all the spring types you know and love from the original version. And now, the biggest (more...)

Springs for devices needing a light touch
The Lee Spring engineering team is aware there are many devices and equipment mechanisms that require a light touch – delicacy rather than power is the main requirement – coupled of course to consistent reliability and longevity in service with pressures in the single digit psi range. (more...)
Unusual applications for wave springs
It may come as a surprise that top artists such as Noel Gallagher, Stevie Wonder and Madonna have performed on stage and in the studio with wave springs. When examining potential uses for wave springs, aerospace, automotive and medical applications are usually the first that come to mind – not (more...)

Key spring considerations
Selecting the right spring for your project can be a challenge, as there are many factors to consider, from the dimensions of the spring to the environment in which it’s installed. After all, a spring has to improve the performance of a product in a cost-effective way and needs to have a long (more...)
Alloy choices for springs
When choosing a spring for your industrial application, one of the major considerations is the material, as this will determine the spring’s suitability for the environment it is working in. Choose the wrong one and you could be facing a costly redesign or repair job down the line. Justin (more...)

Living in the plastic age
The when and why of plastic springs is rarely a simple matter, made as they are from highly engineered composites and technically advanced new generation materials. Typical properties include operation at elevated temperatures, neutral magnetic characteristics, light weight, low thermal (more...)
Shock absorber key in modified rowing machine
An adjustable industrial shock absorber is helping a young woman regain strength and mobility following a major operation to remove a tumour. The shock absorber is built into a modified rowing machine in a project coordinated by nationwide charity Remap. Remap helps disabled people achieve (more...)
Heavy duty die springs open up new application possibilities
Lee Spring says its heavy duty die springs are not like an average spring; they’re made from different shaped wire from traditional die springs for starters, and they work in slightly different ways. But different is a good thing and as a result these springs offer a number of benefits for (more...)
The life-saving spring in airbag bicycle helmets
A novel airbag bicycle helmet, that is worn like a collar, deploys in 0.1 seconds, providing superior protection against head injuries. Key to its operation is wire detail and a leaf spring from Lesjöfors. Concussion is one of the major causes of brain injury. Hence the need importance of a (more...)
Machined springs and wire springs compared
Wire springs date back to before the Industrial Revolution. They established their value immediately, and have not wavered from that most useful course. Certainly, enhancements in materials and manufacturing have been forthcoming, but the basic concept has not changed much. Spring wire coiled hot or (more...)
