The senior sales and production staff at Mississauga, Ont.-based Springs & Things have a total of 125 years of springs manufacturing experience. That’s why the company believes it’s the right choice to meet the industrial community’s spring and wire form needs.
Among its many capabilities, Springs & Things is a leading extension spring supplier. Extension springs — springs which absorb and store energy by offering resistance to a pulling force — are most commonly used in devices that require tensioning, such as balance and lock mechanisms. The company can custom design extension springs in almost any length and with a complete variety of end hooks or loops, and with specific design elements to prevent hook failure.
Since the company can custom design a solution to meet the customer’s requirements, the possibilities are endless. Though typically manufactured with round wire, there’s a wide selection of extension spring materials and finishes available, as well as sizes — ranging from .008 inches to .562 inches. Length or load adjustment devices can be incorporated into the spring, and special features, such as extended hooks, swivel hooks, unusual shapes, combination designs, special bends and attachment methods, are also available.
But the company can also produce springs based on the customer’s own design.
Regardless of whose design it is, Springs & Things may be able to suggest methods to reduce a customer’s costs and improve the spring’s functionality.
