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...)
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...)
