To help ensure accuracy in metric spring specification, Lee Spring has updated its catalogue to add metric extension springs to its range.
With globalisation, metric is becoming an industry standard, so in 2012 Lee Spring introduced a range of metric-wire spring products, including REDUX wave springs and torsion springs. The metric extension spring is the latest metric offering from the company.
Chris Petts, the Managing Director of Lee Spring, says: "Previously, Lee Spring customers would refer to the useful conversion charts in our catalogues when specifying springs. We still display our vast spring range in imperial and metric but, by supplying a metric wire range of springs and fasteners, we help our customers to speed up the specification process, whilst achieving precision and accuracy."
Springs and fasteners are often vital components in products, and with Lee Spring's stock range of over 19,000 springs and fasteners, customers value a faster route to precise and accurate component specification.
Extension springs can be used for various applications and are available in a great many different sizes. Tiny extension springs, for example, might be used in small medical devices, whereas very large extension springs could be used in the brakes of off-road machinery. Extension spring applications include automotive interiors and exteriors, garage door assemblies, vice-grip pliers, carburettors, trampolines, washing devices, farm machinery and toys.
