Lee Spring is promoting its capability for designing and manufacturing custom compression springs with short lead times - for customers unable to use any of the 25,000+ standard items that are available ex-stock.
This simple, reliable and well-known technology provides a complete and quick option for many energy return applications. Design and production engineers in industries from instrumentation to medical devices, and from aerospace to agricultural equipment, are constantly finding special space or leverage requirements that do not fit the standard offering - or an environment that demands more from a material than usual. Equally, it may be simply that the fixing legs need to be different.
Fortunately Lee Spring offers a complete and fast service for customers requiring a wide variety of compression spring formats - the company's Bantam Mini Springs, High Pressure designs, Lite Pressure large diameter, conical and wave concepts work within worldwide standards such as DIN and Die Spring formats.
Many custom designs can be easily achieved by an engineer with only simple guidance choices from the catalogue or website selectors, but this is commonly not the case. Consequently, Lee Spring has focused on a rapid-response custom service that handholds designers through mechanical and material considerations, including music wire, stainless steel, plastic composite, Inconel, Nimonic, Hastelloy, Elgiloy, Monel, phosphor bronze, beryllium copper, etc.
This ensures design and production engineers receive the 'complete spring' for their needs, whether it is for new production or part of a cyclic revision process.
