Springs and pressings


Compression springs

Calculating spring design

Let’s get really technical. Here are different types of helical compression springs. Height is sometimes critical, in aerospace designs for example, and the importance of calculating the spring correct is sooo important. This article shows these calculations.

Happy Easter!

Time to wish you all a Happy Easter! Did you know that it’s actually possible to get color treatment for your springs, for example compression springs? Well, it’s true. Everything to make them fit in right?

Great manufacturing exhibition last week

Have you ever been to the Southern Manufacturing & Electronics fair in Farnborough? This year’s event was held last week and of course the spring industry had representatives in place. And they showed up some great examples of compression springs. It makes such a difference when you get to see the real deal instead of just pictures all the time.

Molding with springs

If the components are too expensive – mold your own. At least that’s what two american engineers did which ended up in a new desktop injection molding machines. The new desktop machine is a competitor to 3D printers and has a compression spring, among other features.

Cleaning systems also need springs

A few years ago I read about this project with compression springs used in cleaning system for crankcase gases. The design project was very long to really make the perfect spring solutions for the separators. In the end three different types of compression springs were sent to the customer. Both sides happy of the technological development.


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.


Springs are hot! At least if you are to believe the fair Valve World where lots of visitors showed great interest in heavy compression springs. Even before the fair was over the first deal was done!


More pressure for sprind during winter season

Compression springs used in the shipping industry. Thanks to their unique qualities make them perfect for “difficult” environment. Especially now during winter time I can image another factor – the cold – adding even more pressure to the springs.

High energy spring

A few weeks ago I read an article about a new more flexible release valve for parachutes containing a high energy compression spring.


Here’s also a preview of the whole mechanism including the parachute.
