Rapid response on complete custom compression springs

Rapid response on complete custom compression springs
Despite their ex-stock availability of over 25,000 springs, Lee Spring deals with situations that require something custom on a daily basis, and a great deal of these come under the design heading of the compression type.

Eliminating production limitations with Thurne slicing equipment

Eliminating production limitations with Thurne slicing equipment
It is amazing sometimes to consider what it takes to speed up a production line – it can simply come down to the performance of a single component. Essentially this is what the team at Thurne came to understand with their bacon slicer technology – and the solution came from close co-operation with Lee Spring as a long-term strategic supplier. Lee Spring was able to create a spring set for Thurne machines that released the potential speed of their CD Mono Card Dispenser, thus rebalancing the whole packaging line.

Continuous length ex-stock extension springs aid prototyping

Continuous length ex-stock extension springs aid prototyping
It can be somewhat of an art when correctly determining extension spring length and other parameters in the development of new or revised products, but this is a process in which Lee Spring have made significantly easier by offering ex-stock continuous lengths which may be trimmed and formed to the desired length and end fitment style.

Medical and pharmaceutical springs with precision and reliability

Medical and pharmaceutical springs with precision and reliability
Manufacturing pharmaceutical and medical products is a demanding job which needs precision, perfect finish, durability and reliability, standardisation and customisation. It’s hard to imagine a field where there is such a consistent need for unerring performance. Fortunately these are parameters that Lee Spring can meet on a daily basis.

Complete torsion spring concept with engineers in mind

Complete torsion spring concept with engineers in mind
To offer the design engineer a proven, compact energy return mechanism in a wide variety of catalogue specs, torsion springs from Lee Spring are the components you need, especially if you are looking for rapid ex-stock delivery or as custom variants if required. Lee Spring Torsion springs exemplify their ‘complete spring’ concept with many options as standard, covering angular orientation and many leg types to suit common applications.

May the force of the spring be with you

May the force of the spring be with you
When faced with a recurring problem, the engineers at Jedi Racing Cars in Wellingborough had to tackle the problem head on, with some help of Lee Spring. When servicing their customer F1000 single seater racing cars – the half shaft CV pot joint they were using, derived from the original Mini, just wasn’t intended for quick removal and often resulted in breakage of the adjacent casting mounted on the differential.

Get the answers to all your spring problems at EDS 2017

Get the answers to all your spring problems at EDS 2017
At the Engineering Design Show, taking place from 18th to 19th October at Ricoh Arena, Coventry, experienced engineering and production personnel from Lee Spring will be available to engineers to discuss their design, development, replacement and production needs. This means engineers will be able to source from the Lee Spring 25,000 component catalogue which is available free on the stand (A10) or to decide design parameters if a custom item would be more suitable.

Compression battery springs are the perfect prototype

Compression battery springs are the perfect prototype
The perfect prototype and small run production is the conical formed compression battery springs from Lee Spring, which are also suited for larger runs too. These economical and reliable battery contacts are suitable for moulded cases with self-contained battery compartments. They provide nickel coated battery contacts designed to adjust to varying battery lengths with low contact resistance and dependable connections.

Bending over backwards and sideways for custom Wire Forms

Bending over backwards and sideways for custom Wire Forms
Commonly used in electronics and automotive industries, Wire Forms are used extensively as retainers or for location of components from connectors to seat coverings. By their nature, each is of custom design although Lee Spring have many ‘standard’ styles, including ‘S’ hooks, ‘U’ hooks, ‘J’ hooks and clips, but from there designs can go almost anywhere.

Spring Kits put in-demand items at your fingertips

Spring Kits put in-demand items at your fingertips
In all industries rapid response is paramount, so when an engineer or technician reaches for an item and finds a gap on the rack, that’s when frustration and delays kick in. Bearing this in mind Lee Spring have developed spring kits which meet a comprehensive range of needs for design, prototyping and development purposes.

Lee Spring appearing at FAST Exhibition 2017

Lee Spring appearing at FAST Exhibition 2017
Many companies believe you can’t beat face-to-face discussions to solve a design engineering, production engineering or supply problem. This includes the organisers at FAST and Lee Spring, as they plan to discuss with design, production, installation and maintenance engineers just how the Lee Spring range of ex-stock, same day dispatch, springs and custom capability can help to solve industrial engineering problems.

High pressure springs designed to save space

High pressure springs designed to save space
The specialist range of high pressure springs from Lee Spring are designed to save space, which enables compact product design by combining an unusual range of performance characteristics to suit small applications with high loading requirements. They match small physical size with high force capacity operating over short distance and small deflections.

Drawbar Springs has a style which creates extension functions

Drawbar Springs has a style which creates extension functions
With a design style that manages to create an extension spring function out of a compression spring, Drawbar Springs have a number of specific benefits. These apply in situations where - perhaps for safety reasons – the load must be supported even if the spring fails, for example, on a garden swing seat. Equally, the design protects against spring deformation in situations where a sequence of connections is being made when one or two springs will for a short time carry excessive forces until the installation is complete, for example, a swimming pool cover.
