New build or replacement part: why compromise?

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 about or purchase? Whilst it is undoubtedly the case that a designer, or someone who wants to find a replacement part for a broken component, will stand a very high chance of success by searching the web there are a lot of times when it is impossible to find exactly the right component or part.

Take springs, for example. It is often the case that a designer will select the nearest best spring design from a catalogue and therefore must compromise on some aspect of the original specification.

But this needn’t be the case. Goss Springs is able to offer a complete design service in order to arrive at the best deign and material selection, as well as an optimised manufacturing pro-cess to ensure that the specific-ation is met. In the world of industrial spring and pressed steel part design and manufacture, Goss Springs is one of the few UK based manufacturers who can offer such a comprehensive design to manufacture service. The company is able to manufacture very small batches for the one-off purchase as well as high volume components for repeat OEM build. The company specialises in the design and manufacture of exact replicas of original components such as springs for applications on classic cars.

At the other end of the scale the company, with its highly integrated manufacturing processes, can produce highly competitive high-volume springs and components for modern industrial requirements in aerospace, automotive, defence, medical and electronics. “Customising the design and manufacture of the requirement of our customers is one of the main strengths of our company,” says director Nick Goss.

Take the most common type of spring – the simple tension spring. At one end of the application spectrum Goss produces miniature tension spring no bigger than 5mm long which are used to control the actuation of electronic microswitches over 100s of 1000s of operations. At the other end of the scale Goss has designed and manufactured many compression and tension springs for what is described as “single operation” applications in military applications. The spring may have to function just once but must be entirely dependable and reliable.
