Technical Information

There is a lot more to spring design and manufacture than most people think. From choosing the correct material with a suitable balance between strength and reliability to choosing the correct surface finish and corrosion protection, the options are endless.

This section of the site will hopefully give a brief overview of the problems that we encounter when we start designing a spring, and the options available to solve those problems.

Materials lists the various advantages and disadvantages of the numerous types and sub-types of wire and flat strip that we use here during manufacture.

Sizes gives a useful comparison between metric, Imperial and Standard Wire Gauge sizes of wire and flat strip.

Corrosion suggests suitable solutions for the prevention of corrosion of a spring after manufacture, from simple oils to more complex and expensive plating.

Conversion lists some useful conversion factors for metric to Imperial and back again.
