Springs and pressings

Tension spring manufacturing

I don’t remember if I’ve showed this video before of tension springs being manufactured. If you’ve seen it before – sorry. If you haven’t – enjoy!

Gas spring with extra safety

Did you know that it’s possible to have more than 770 gas springs in stock? And numerous end fittings to complete the spring? Well, it’s true. You can actually put your order one day and get it delivered that very same day. This gas spring with safety lock functionality is one of them.

Ride off into the sunset

Spring materials can be a jungle and the making the right choice is crucial from the beginning. Steel, stainless, super alloys, titanium etc. Add modern equipment (for e.g. compression springs), experienced production teams and experts. Make sure you can keep the highest level of quality and productivity to ride off into the sunset.

Stamped love!

I don’t think these stampings or stamped parts are common in factories but I couldn’t help myself. But I can live with that because it’s Valentine’s day. Take care of yourself and your loved ones!

Shed some light on spring torque force

New week! Let’s make it a good one and start by shedding some light on what makes torsion springs so great. In technical terms we’re talking about the torque performance, in this case . Torque is equal to force x leg length: M= F x A. Torsion springs have a linear spring characteristic, i.e. if a spring is turned 10° to provide torque of 1 Nmm, the same spring will provide a torque of 2 Nmm at 20° torsion. Interesting!

Tension springs + bikes = true

It’s strange but many times when I search the internet for “tension spring” I get a lot of hits on pages related to biking. And here’s one more example – How to adjust a Shimano Shadow Plus clutch rear derailleur.

Safety system using gas springs

Retractable barrier system. Have you heard about it before? I haven’t but now I know. It’s a modular and self-storing barrier system that can withstand up to 30,000 pounds of impact at 4 mph. It’s used as a safety system to make areas safer with durable and reinforced dividers that are extremely space efficient. Each barrier unit is gas spring-assisted and can be raised or lowered flush into the floor with an operational tool.

Not so wireless after all

Stampings are common in the telecom industry. They could be sub components for cellphones, such as decorative panels, contact clips etc.

Up and away!

Did you play with model airplanes as a child? I didn’t but my brother did. He’s airplane looked a bit like this one, but what I’ve just learned is that there are torsion springs at the wing tip end of the folding strut mechanism to provide tension in the lines. On some model airplane types , not all.
