Springs & Things is known for its expertise in the design and manufacture of springs. But just as the company's name suggests, it offers much more. The capabilities of this Mississauga, Ont.-based manufacturer extend to making a wide range of products. It also manufactures wire forms, assemblies and many other components with spring-like qualities.
Springs & Things makes wire forms in many types, sizes and shapes. These wire forms can be made using round or shaped wire ranging from basic tempers to full spring materials, including stainless steel wire. The company uses the best CNC equipment available to ensure uniform results.
Springs & Things can also handle requests for assemblies, whether simple or complex in design. This value-added service is one way the company sets itself apart from competitors. Springs & Things often designs and produces assemblies from scratch, as well as mating existing parts to wire forms.
According to the company, the term “spring-like” can be applied to practically any part that is made from materials that are traditionally used in spring construction.
“For example, you may need an S-hook or a formed metal part that needs a little spring tension,” the company explains on its website.
Springs & Things often works with customers to design prototypes and replacement parts that offer improved performance and cost savings. The company works with spring materials ranging from hard drawn MB to Inconel. Some non-spring materials are also available, such as low carbon, stainless steel and tungsten filament wire.
Diverse industries and applications
Products from Springs & Things are used in everything from HVAC filters to high-end microcomputers. As a result of their versatile capabilities, the company has experience working with a variety of sectors such as industrial, automotive, electronic and medical.
