The Many Uses of Custom Springs

Ever since the invention of modern springs in the early 15th century, engineers and manufacturers alike have discovered an uncountable amount of uses for the humble spring. In fact, there are actually dozens of different spring varieties—from cantilever springs (which are used in devices such as diving boards) to torsion springs (found in mousetraps). Indeed, the plethora of uses gave rise to an entire industry dedicated to perfecting the manufacture of spring-like devices.


Our Crucial Role in the Industry

European Springs stocks items as conventional and straightforward as springs and fasteners, all the way up to complex gas springs, ready for same-day dispatch. Whether it’s a small business or a large-scale operation, our clients trust us to stock them with high-quality spring components with every single delivery. One common use of the gas spring, for example, is its implementation in the manufacture of air guns and recoil buffers. Gas springs that operate with high pressure can store a huge amount of energy, allowing them to be used as a power pack. Another great application of the gas spring includes its ability to operate the main valve on Formula 1 race cars. It is also worth noting that gas springs come in numerous varieties, including the following: non-rotating cylinder, cable cylinder, standard cylinder, fixed-height cylinder, dual-mode cylinder, heavy-duty cylinder, and more.
