The new Series 20 Lee Spring UK catalogue has a fresh look as well as featuring new products including High Pressure springs, Metric Bantam Mini compression springs and the latest Heavy Duty die springs. Available now, the new Series 20 Lee Spring catalogue contains almost 20,000 spring products.
Chris Petts, the Managing Director of Lee Spring UK, comments: "We have added some exciting new products to our range of stock springs, offering customers an even greater variety of springs to meet their specific needs."
Previously when customers required high spring rates, they could only have been found in the largest stock compression spring sizes or in custom spring designs. However, the new LHP High Pressure compression springs offer very high spring rates in a more slender spring design. The Lee Spring engineering team has designed an offering of 144 slender parts packed with high load capacities, rated to pressures of 300, 400 and 500psi (2.1, 2.8 and 3.4N/mm2). High Pressure series compression springs in 17-7PH stainless steel are passivated, shotpeened and preset to provide a balance of corrosion resistance, high strength and toughness.
This new line of High Pressure compression springs is suitable for applications with small spaces requiring firm, slender springs. They are used in a variety of applications including switches, ball plungers, safety relief valves, quick-change tools and vice clamps.
The latest Lee Spring Heavy Duty die springs also feature in the new catalogue. Die springs are manufactured from round wire specifically for use in dies or as heavy-duty coil springs in any high-stress, high-load application such as clutches, brakes, farm machinery and aircraft mechanisms. Lee Spring offers five different 'Hefty' Heavy Duty die spring configurations: Medium, Medium Plus, Medium Heavy, Heavy and Extra Heavy load.
Metric Bantam Mini compression springs from Lee Spring are powerful yet ultra-compact springs that have been designed to operate in small spaces; they are used in various applications, including medical instruments and surgical tools, firearms, communication devices and hardware, aerospace, automotive and marine equipment.
Chris Petts explains why the metric springs are advantageous: "Manufacturing springs using metric-wire helps us to offer more accurate spring measurement to customers working in metric units. It helps our customers to achieve precision and accuracy, as well as speed up the specification process."
The new metric range of Bantam compression springs starts at wire diameters of 0.010mm, which is just a little thicker than a human hair, with outside diameters from 0.81 to 1.65 mm and free lengths from 1 to 14mm. The existing imperial (inch) range of Bantam springs is offered in wire diameters from 0.004 to 0.0055inch and outside diameters of 0.025 to 0.057inch.
Manufactured from Elgiloy, a high temperature resistant, non-magnetic nickel alloy that is 10 per cent stronger than type 316 stainless steel, these miniature stock springs offer an excellent combination of strength and corrosion resistance.
To supplement its extensive range of stock springs, Lee Spring offers a custom spring design service, Custom Springs Direct, which is a streamlined service for the provision of springs designed and manufactured to customer specifications.
