Information and background on technical springs

Spring technology is fascinating - in addition to the many different shapes and designs of technical springs, you will find further information on the manufacture and production of bent parts, individual spring solutions, surface treatments and articles on the requirements and fields of application of springs in our blog.

Springs in mechanical engineering

Technical springs for mechanical engineering
Technical springs can be found in almost every machine construction. Whether as connecting and storage elements or as a component element for measuring, resting and safety elements. With their different functions, the all-rounders can be used in a variety of ways.

Springs for robotic systems

Springs make robot movements possible
Robotics is playing an increasingly important role in industrial manufacturing. But what do technical springs have to do with robot systems? We report...

Clamping springs

spring for clamping
Clamping springs are used to ensure a firm hold: Movable components can be locked using a mechanical clamping device in the form of a metal spring. Thus, clamping springs are often an indispensable design element.

Spring Manufacturing Express Service

Express service for springs
Engineers, designers and project managers know the circumstances: design processes are demanding projects in which work is often carried out at high pressure. Within the development process of a product, the time for results plays a decisive role.

Special springs

Special springs as a custom-made product
Special springs require a lot of technical know-how in order to equip the end products with all the properties that are needed in use.

Stainless steel retaining clips

Retaining Clips Manufacturing
In many areas of technology, in the automotive or aviation industry, in medical technology, electrical engineering or in the tool sector, it happens again and again that certain parts have to be held or fixed.

Metal springs

metal spring
Although metal springs are not the focus of many technical applications, they are nonetheless indispensable design elements. The demands on the springs are diverse and individual. Metal springs often have to solve several tasks at the same time, which is why standard springs available from stock are often not sufficient and special solutions are required instead.

Stamped parts

Manufacture of stamped and bent parts on a Bihler machine
Stamping and bending technology is a non-cutting manufacturing process for the manufacture of complex components. With this production method, further forming process steps follow after a stamping process. This is how high-precision stamped and bent parts with special bending geometries are created in an efficient production chain.

Spring Steel & Spring steel strip

spring steel
Spring steel is used to manufacture technical springs. The material has optimal mechanical properties in terms of formability paired with high strength and toughness at the same time. Ideal for long-term use of technical springs.

Austenitic steel for spring technology

Austenitic steel in spring technology
Austenitic steels are used in many branches of industry and, in the group of stainless steels, have a total global consumption of around 70%. Austenitic steels are best known under the name chromium-nickel steels. Austenitic steel is the most common of the stainless steels.
