  • Advantages of Plastic Springs

    Springs are an important part of many machines, products, and processes. Without the use of springs, many of the products that we use today could not exist. Many of the springs used in today's world are made of a variety of metals, such as steel, aluminum, brass, and nickel. However, sometimes a spring cannot be made from metal for a variety of reasons. If a customer has a product that operates around magnets, using a metal spring could be disastrous. However, the product will not function properly without a spring...

  • The Usefulness of Metal Springs

    Metal springs are springs made from strips of sheet metal. These kinds of springs are the most basic spring types. Usually, the sheet metal is cut into strips, then the strips are bent into the desired spring shape. These springs are often used to anchor buttons and other smaller mechanisms where the item needs just a bit of spring or lift to operate the item. One place that you will often find sheet metal springs are in membrane switch boards. These boards have tiny buttons created from the sheet metal....

  • 4 Springs for Countless Applications

    by Rebekah Fuller, Editor for IQS If you asked a kindergartener to describe a spring, I'm guessing he or she would give an answer along the lines of it's bouncy! . This comes from my own experience with springs when I was that age, particularly my bed springs. It was exhilarating to see how close the coiled elasticity of those metal springs could get me to my ceiling, before their resisting force eased my landing! Of course then I didn't understand how the mechanisms hidden within my mattress worked, including...

Industry Information

Metal Springs

Metal springs can be constructed of a wide range of metals, depending on the particular application of the spring. Metal springs are ideal for use in marine, petrochemical, pharmaceutical, medical and in many other contexts. Metal springs can be involved in major or minor ways in alarms, aviation, circuit breakers, electronics, furniture, hardware, instruments and gauges, office/business machines, solenoid valves and writing instruments as well as a wide variety of other industrial, commercial and consumer products.

Like all other spring varieties, metal springs are tools used for the storage and transmission of force. Force can be transmitted to a metal spring through compression, twisting and in other ways. Coil springs are among the most popular and widely produced spring variety, and they are often made of metal, though they are sometimes made out of other materials like plastic. The term “coil spring” is somewhat ambiguous; it can refer to springs with rounded coils or coiled, flat strips. Springs with coiled flat strips are usually referred to as flat springs; they are also a very common spring variety, and they are often made of metal. Torsion springs also qualify as coiled springs, but they involve the storage and transmission of rotational force. Such springs are often made of metal because of its high tensile strength compared to other materials like plastic.

Metal springs come in a wide variety of sizes and types. While springs can be made from a wide range of metals, spring steel is one of the most popular spring composition materials. Spring steel is characterized by its strength and elasticity. Stainless steel is also a very popular spring composition material because of its qualities of strength and corrosion resistance. Stainless steel springs are often employed in situations where sustained or frequent exposure to moisture or chemicals is likely. Metal springs may also be called metal struts, metal props, metal shocks, metal lifts or metal dampers, depending on the industry and application. Metal springs are commonly used to reduce the shock or impact of a load or another element. Particularly in automotive applications and in the case of some varieties of heavy industrial machinery, metal springs can be invaluable shock and impact absorbing utilities, which reduces wear on other connected components and increases the efficiency and operating life of the equipment. Throughout industry and commerce as well as in consumer products contexts, metal springs are important to the functioning of all kinds of products and processes.
