Spring Manufacturing Processes
In a previous post on our blog, we spoke about some of the different types of materials that we use to create our high performance springs. However, it’s not only the materials that make our springs the best, but also our manufacturing processes as well. Here are some of the techniques that we utilise:
Springs are manufactured from one wire, yet high powered machinery is required to refine them to truly precise specifications. Often, the correct shape is achieved only after the material in question has actually cooled, and numerical control or automation is frequently needed to ensure that every spring is totally uniform. Spring forming has also moved on substantially in recent years, not so much in terms of quality, but more in terms of the quantity of products that can be manufactured at speed. With computer assistance now available too, the field of spring manufacture has certainly been revolutionised.
