  4. History of Springs

    Springs have come a long way over the years. The function of springs has been quite necessary for the creation and development of different industries. Still, springs didn’t always look like they do now. A long time ago most springs were made of flat wire in curved form and were called leaf springs. Still, it wasn’t until 1763 that coil springs were created. Today, coil springs are very common and widely used. They are more compact and readily available, that is why most applications use coil springs. Below are a few highlights of springs and the spring industry across different decades.

    Tragedy and Triumph

    -Ana E. Gaeta

    17 years ago, tragedy struck and an entire nation bled as we all shed tears of pain, fear, hate and despair. It wasn't a building that collapsed, it was a nation that was attacked. Today we spring towards greater heights; not without caution, but with a much more diligent and strong attitude, with the drive and desire to always learn and grow.

    No one would have imagined that in the blink of an eye, every American would be paralyzed as we stood in shock, staring at a TV monitor, watching the twin towers fall, tears dripping down our eyes trying to swallow hard, unable to digest the chaos that was going on, unable to sustain the pain

    fourth of july

    Fourth of July: that time of year when we get to enjoy the sun, take the day off and spring into celebration... but there is more to it than that.

  9. Max Safe Travel in Metal Springs

    Elastic Limit = Maximum Safe Travel

    When it comes to springs, the terms “maximum safe travel”. “elastic limit” and “taking a set” can be a little confusing to understand because they are all related. These terms are all related to the importance of respecting the limits of deflection that each spring has.

    Springs can only be compressed, extended, or torqued to a certain point before it is too far. Since each spring design is different, it is very important that you know the limits of the specific spring you are using.

    The elastic limit of a spring (a.k.a maximum

  10. What is Spring Stress?

    “What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger”

    Stress can be damaging, it can break you, if not dealt with correctly it can even kill you. However, stress can also be quite useful. When managed adequately it may serve a greater purpose, such as increased productivity and improved functionality.

    What is Spring Stress?

    Spring stress is the pressure or tension placed on a spring. There are three main factors that play a role in spring stress. One is the spring index (how tight the coils are). Another is the working loads or force it undergoes. Lastly, the environment the spring is in can also create additional stress (such as high heat). These three factors make up spring stress and will directly affect its capacity and lifespan.
