Wire forms come as a standard offer

Wire forms come as a standard offer
Wire forms typically are parts made from wire that is bent to have specific angles and lengths. They are well known as simple, quick to install and low cost as permanent but easily removable devices. These simple devices are found in electrical equipment, vehicles of all types, machines such as for production, unit transfer or mobile equipment or furniture.

Torsion springs and axial rotational energy systems

Torsion springs and axial rotational energy systems
Where it is necessary to apply a torque or to store rotational energy then Lee Spring torsion springs are frequently the most efficient solution. This is because of the action around a core with ends which can be formed into a wide range of leg shapes twisted and formed to suit the project needs.

Constant force, constant torque and constant load springs

Constant force, constant torque and constant load springs
The Lee Spring extension type of constant force spring represents the most basic, yet most versatile, type of constant force spring. It is a pre-stressed flat strip of spring material which is formed into a virtually constant radius coils around itself or on a drum. When the strip is extended (deflected) the inherent stress resists the loading force, the same as a common extension spring, but at a nearly constant (zero) rate.

Plastic composite compression springs offer full package

Plastic composite compression springs offer full package
Increasingly, engineers are seeing the benefits of plastic spring technology as exemplified by Lee Spring in their LeeP range. By offering non-magnetic, non-corrosive and chemically inert properties in a lightweight package, LeeP springs are often a complete solution for applications in areas of medical device manufacturing, pharmaceutical equipment, aerospace and lightweight e.g. portable instrumentation.

Washers with conical configuration to support high loads

Washers with conical configuration to support high loads
Ex-stock or custom Belleville washers in a complete package from Lee Spring are often used to solve vibration, thermal expansion, relaxation and bolt creep problems. Their conical configuration enables them to support high loads with relatively small deflections and solid heights compared to helical springs. Belleville washers may also be used as locking devices in applications with low dynamic loads.

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.

Constant force, constant load springs

Constant force, constant load springs
Constant force springs from Lee Spring ex-stock or custom, are a complete spring package offering constant force over the usable range. They are therefore suited for applications where a constant load is required.

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.
