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.

Production of flat springs

Production of flat springs from sheet metal
Flat springs are used in many branches of industry. Whether in the aerospace industry, in machine and vehicle construction or in electrical engineering, technical springs are among the most important design elements. Due to the large number of possible applications, well-founded know-how and first-class quality are required for the production of flat springs.

Durability of technical springs

Durability and fatigue strength for technical springs
Technical springs are spring steel components whose function is to deform elastically. They give way under stress and absorb force, which they release again when relaxed and allow them to return to their original shape. A look at the determinants of spring durability...

Fix and position with spring steel clips

Spring steel clip made of stainless steel
Proven a million times over, spring steel clips are used wherever components need to be positioned, fixed, combined or locked. The possible uses are therefore almost universal. In the tool industry, aviation, the automotive industry, in the electrical and electronics industry and in many other areas.

Torsion springs – widespread and highly efficient

Torsion springs with torque
Probably the best-known use of a torsion spring is the torsion bar, a torsion bar that was invented by Ferdinand Porsche and patented by him in 1931...

EMC contact springs – springs for EMC applications

EMC contact springs and circuit boards
EMC contact springs are spring elements to avoid electromagnetic interference. Designed for a specific functionality, they enable the smooth operation of machines and systems by preventing electromagnetic or electrostatic interference.

Shaped springs for special cases

Form springs Special cases are developed
Whether functional under extremely high or low temperatures, effective in corrosive environments or designed for special dynamic or static loads: form springs can also be adapted for extreme applications.

Strength of form springs

It is not just a question of cost-effectiveness, but also of sustainability when a high strength of form springs and thus a long service life in continuous operation is expected.

Production of shaped springs: a multilayered process

Form spring manufacturing, the manufacturing process
In order to produce technical springs in their almost unmanageable variety of applications in a purpose-optimized and always state-of-the-art manner, you have to be very familiar with the procurement of optimal materials and components as well as with all production processes.

From punching and lasering flat springs

Flat springs can be punched or lasered
Punching, stamping, bending, lasering or laser cutting - anyone who relies on the quality and functionality of individual form springs also trusts the manufacturer's competence in the shaping production methods.

What are technical springs?

Definition of technical springs
Holding, connecting, clamping, fastening, closing, securing, latching or contacting are the main performances required of them...
