  • The History of the Trampoline

    The first trampolines did not use metal springs like the trampolines of today. The first trampolines were hand-held, and used to catch people when they fell, such as out of a burning building. The circus industry was the first place that invented a bed for bouncing and catching acrobats when they fell. These circuses use large piles of blankets and pillows to cushion the fall of acrobats in the 1800s and early 1900s. The first modern-style trampoline was invented in 1934 by George Nissen and Larry Griswold. This trampoline was...

  • Springfield Spring Corp. Honored for Open Book Management

    Boston, MA December 21st, 2012— Springfield Spring Corporation was recently honored as one of the innovative members of industrial manufacturing. The company practices open book management, which allows employees on all levels to comment on how they want the company to run in the future. Springfield Spring Corporation has used this system successfully since 2001. President Norman Rodriguez thought of using open book management because many employees and potential customers want to see the financial history of a company before they start a relationship with the company. Customers want to...

Industry Information

Industrial Springs

Industrial springs are helically shaped, strong mechanical devices used as components of machines, equipment and vehicles. While small springs are used in electronic and medical devices, industrial springs are much larger, although their functions are essentially the same. Thick pieces of round, flat or hollow wire are tightly wound with the application of heat to form a component with good elastic and return properties. When the spring's shape is changed, it exerts a resisting force and returns back to its original configuration.

Industrial applications require many different types of springs. Compression springs act as a cushion for a downward acting force, extension springs give resistance to outward acting forces and are elongated when pulled from each end, torsion springs store mechanical energy and exert torque and finally, flat springs, which are not coiled wire but rather flat strips of metal that provide shock resistance, are used in simple applications. Springs are used in the aerospace, railroad, automotive manufacturing, machinery, industrial equipment, nuclear power generation, offshore oil and gas, defense, telecommunications, actuator and valve control applications. They can come in many different shapes, they can be as long as several feet and they can be custom made to fit certain specifications. Industrial springs are also often available in pre-engineered stock sizes.

Depending on the type of spring and the desired strengths and properties, industrial springs are fabricated a couple different ways out of several types of metal. Plastic is only used for light to medium applications and is therefore not strong enough. Spring steel, an industrial grade of steel alloy specifically designed for spring fabrication, is the standard choice of material. It is elastic and exhibits good return properties that last over long periods of time. Music wire, made of high carbon steel, is also popular for heavy duty applications. It is cold drawn, strong and has a uniform tensile strength. For specialty applications within the food and beverage processing, pharmaceutical and medical industries, stainless steel springs are used for their corrosion resistant, con-contaminating and heat resistant properties. Other metals used for industrial springs include copper, nickel, titanium and tantalum. The strongest spring design uses braided and wound wire. This type can handle sudden and heavy loads. The largest industrial springs, those over six inches in diameter, must be hot rolled and coiled around special machinery. Because they are thick and hard to form, large springs are hardened post fabrication. Before use, each industrial spring is shot-peened, a process that increases fatigue life. They are also always load tested to ensure compression characteristics.
