  • Springs in Your Home

    There is something fascinating about a spring. Springs are flexible, yet strong, and have the ability to bounce back no matter how much pressure or pull you place on them. Of course, some weaker springs will break under too much tension, but some springs seem to resist any interference or tampering. If you look around you, it is easy to see just how prevalent springs are in our modern lives. Take a tour of your house and see how many different uses of springs you see. You may be surprised...

  • Small Springs: 5 Types of Spring Wire

    Did you know that you can turn your own springs at home? In fact, if you use the correct tools and process, you can make almost any kind of spring at home, whether it is a flat spring, compression spring, or tension spring. There are many tutorials for creating your own small springs at home online. Some of the processes outlined online can be dangerous, so always use extreme caution when trying to bend wire at home. If you do choose to create small springs at home, the following types...

Industry Information

Small Springs

Small springs are components of machines and equipment that are made of very thin, tightly wound wire. They measure between 0.0036 and 0.187 inches thick, and smaller springs are always in development. Springs are found in many different industries, and small springs are no exception, although they are most commonly found within electronic systems.

There are many kinds of small springs. Electronic springs are extremely small and must be fabricated under a microscope in a clean room facility. The smallest springs used in computers are can be difficult to see with a human eye. They can be found in cell phones, computers and electronic scales. The medical industry uses small springs in devices like hearing aides, catheters and endoscopes. Some keyboards and touchpad keys each contain a tiny spring underneath the plastic overlay to provide tactile response, which provides assurance that the button has been properly pushed. Appliances like commercial dryers, hardware, firearms, circuit breakers, lighting, pools and spas, toys, automotive components, jewelry like watches, lock mechanisms, small clocks, sport fishing equipment, batteries, marine applications and writing instruments like pens all employ the use of small springs to work properly. They are used for compression, torsion or tension/extension and are composed of either round coil wire or flat wire.

While larger springs are formed out of annealed metal and hardened after fabrication, smaller springs are wound from pre-hardened wire. The wire is made of many different materials, including all types of austenitic stainless steel (302, 304, 316), pre-plated zinc, bronze, hestelloy and music wire. They are used as precision mechanical springs and are wound by micro-coilers, a very recent technology. The wire used to make the springs is always formed by cold rolling or cold extrusion, which increases its strength when compared to hot rolling. Fabricating smaller and smaller micro springs is currently in high demand as micro chips themselves become smaller with each technological innovation and the demand for smaller electronics grows. Manufacturers who specialize in small springs handle the design, fabrication and finishing processes all in one plant. The smaller the spring, the more difficult its manufacturing technique; today, they are made with the help of CNC (computer numerical controlled) machinery, which carries out the fabrication process in an automated manner by direction of computer software.
