Manufacturing Process

manufacturingThe manufacturing process starts with you, the customer. A quick search through our Stock Spring Catalogue. can result in savings and speed if we can utilize one for you. Upon submitting a quote we will follow up and help you to capture any other needed details, examples being material size or finish. We may also make any design recommendations, to ensure a reliable spring, as well. Once you submit a purchase order the drawing and specs are reviewed to ensure a good design & all required tolerances are proofed for manufacture. Then your order is scheduled for production, and will go to the relevant section for production. COILING PROCESS – This is the area where the automatic CNC coiling machinery is operated for production of your order. Automatic coilers can handle wire from 0.25mm to 20.00mm. SECONDARY PROCESSING – the secondary department is where small batches will have further processing procedures done by an operator. This is where, once the spring is coiled, the ends of torsion springs are formed, where loops are put onto the ends of extension springs, and where wire forms are often tested or maybe some small processing is required. GRINDING – This is the department where the ends of compression springs are ground. Spring Grinders pass the springs between 2 large grinding wheels so that both sides of the spring can be ground at once. manufacturing1QUALITY CONTROL – is performed at all stages of the journey from one machine and section to the next - to deliver the most reliable product possible - and to keep what we manufactured to your specifications.  Spring tolerances are unique to the industry and Tolerances generally held to S.M.I commercial standards, not to a machinist block. Longevity of the spring in application is of paramont consideration.

FINISHING – There are many finishing touches that you can put on your springs. Some of these are necessary, while others may be called for by the design you have in mind.  We can paint your springs or add a colour code stripe. Powder coating, Passivating, Plating & Electro polishing are all examples of types of coatings added to springs, mostly as an environmental protection.

SHIPPING – Before your springs are shipped we package them in bags, boxes, drums or pallets all dependent upon your requirements. We can handle customer stock codes on shipping details & release schedules to include forward orders.

We can custom label each package. We will ship using which ever freight carrier the customer requests, or the most economical or fastest method at the time.
