  1. Memorial Day Commemoration

    It is easy to say: Happy Memorial Day, without giving much thought to what that date actually stands for. Yet, there is so much more to this day than sales, picnics and the day off. Sure, there is nothing wrong with getting to celebrate all that with your loved ones, but it is also important to remember the reason behind each holiday. Once we truly stop and ponder what that day actually means, we realize it isn’t such a happy day, but it is a very important one. It is a date to think, to reflect, and to honor those who have served. It is a day for families that have lost their loved ones to the war, and for their nation, to feel proud and commemorate. It is a day to realize how lucky we are that many are willing to give up their lives for ours.

    Memorial Day is a day to honor and remember all those who have served the U.S. and to acknowledge their efforts, their bravery and the lives that

  3. The Importance of Initial Tension in Extension Springs

    Initial tension is an important term related to extension springs. It refers to the tension that is store between an extension spring coils, which is what keep them together. The initial tension is released once the spring is extended to the point where you can barely see some light pass through the coils. This value directly affects the load required to pull an extension spring, that is why it is so important to keep it in mind when designing or buying a tension spring.

    Rate is the constant force that a spring exerts per one unit (1 inch or 1 millimeter) of distance traveled. Therefore, it is expressed in pounds per inch or newtons per millimeter. Because the spring already has initial tension before deflection, this value is additional to the load determined by the spring rate. To further explain this, let's illustrate it differently.

    Let’s say

  4. The Art of Spring Making

    The Art of Spring Making: What many don't understand about the complexity of springs

    Making springs is truly an art. There is so much that goes into each spring that it can be hard to perceive it all by just looking at one. That is why many people still think that a spring is just coiled wire, but springs are so much more than that. Making a spring requires precision, calculation, design trials, in depth planning, material purchasing, set ups, specific testing, heat treating, post manufacturing verification, constant quality control, much dedication, skill, and experienced work. Still, it is not uncommon for people to complain about a custom spring needing a 4 week lead time or a batch of 25 springs costing over $300 USD. We hope the following information will provide new insight regarding the value and dedicated work it requires to manufacture quality precision springs

  8. Martin Luther King Jr. Day at Acxess Spring

    Most Americans know who Martin Luther King Jr. was and that somewhere in January we celebrate his birthdate as a Federal holiday. We know he had a dream, and that dream helped many to find the courage to stand up for freedom and equality. What many do not know is exactly what he stood for, and how long it really took to make this holiday a truly commemorated day by all states.

    Martin Luther King Jr. led a non-violent activism movement to protest against racial discrimination laws. In 1984, his birthday was signed into law as a holiday but it was not observed until 3 years later. Even then, many states resisted its observance. It was not until 2000 that all 50 states started to observe it for the first time.

    At Acxess Spring, we want to commemorate this day by reminding our staff and customers what Martin Luther King really stood for. He stood for courage. The courage to speak

  10. Coil Springs and Other Spring Types

    The main function of a spring, is to store energy and release it when necessary and function under the right load. The most common types of springs are coil springs. These are made of round wire and include compression, extension, and torsion springs (along with other variations of these). However, there are also other types of less popular springs such as wire form springs and die springs. In this article we will discuss a bit more about them and why, at Acxess Spring, we focus on manufacturing and commercializing only coil springs.
