Though Newcomb Spring is one of North America's leading metal form and spring manufacturers, the company is more than that. Much more.
It offers an array of capabilities, including design assistance; standard, semi-precious and precious materials; fast turnarounds and prototypes; advanced quality controls; secondary and finishing operations; as well as specialty packaging.
Metal form and spring design: Customers often choose Newcomb for its ability to produce parts that solve problems, and its in-house spring design assistance capabilities. The company can review the metal form or spring design, application and requirements, and offer advice and insight on manufacturing considerations and part functionality.
Materials: Newcomb Spring is capable of manufacturing parts from almost any material — from stainless spring steel to titanium. Each of its facilities can review part specifications and order designs to advise on material lifespan, performance and tolerances. Often staff can recommend alternate materials to reduce costs, or better options that will improve part function.
Fast turnarounds and prototypes: Newcomb Spring plants can meet very fast turnaround deadlines for springs and forms, helping customers get the parts they need, when they need them. The company’s network of facilities provides it with a unique advantage in the market — if one plant ever goes offline or has a large work load, another plant is able to manufacture the order. Many customers also ask Newcomb to produce metal form and spring prototypes. Its metal forming and spring manufacturing prototype services include an array of in-house tooling capabilities, as well as automated processes, that allow them to produce metal component prototypes quickly and with the highest levels of precision.
Quality control: Customers rely on Newcomb Spring for quality parts and compliance to specifications, and it produces coil springs and metal forms with the strictest tolerance requirements. Its advanced quality control and inspection equipment includes highly accurate laser measurement equipment and photographic tolerance measurement tools, as well as state-of-the-art image dimension measuring systems.
Secondary and finishing operations: Newcomb offers a complete line of secondary operations to maximize product performance and prepare parts for use in various customer applications. Capabilities include assembly, heat treating, grinding, shot peening, welding and much more.
Specialty packaging: Packaging methods are designed so parts are easy for customers to use in their products. The company can customize its processes to meet specific requirements (e.g., packaging by specific quantity, weight or by part collection).
