Ordering Custom Made Springs

Aug 6th 2015 at 1:40 PM

Custom made springs are made by metal fabricators that use special equipment such as CNC machines which use computer numerical control techniques. These machines can perform a variety of machining work that is very precise since they are operated by computers.

The Advantage of CNC Machines

With CNC machines, human intervention in fabricating custom torsion springs is brought to nearly zero. All cutting, shaping, bending, forming and so forth are done by this machine by itself.

What you will have after it has finished with its job is a perfect prototype of what your product concept looks like down to the last details. Thus all kinds of extension springs, such as those used as trampoline springs are completely fabricated according to what was planned – as long as the input in its brain (computer) is strictly followed.

By using these machines, the expensive cost of fabrication of prototypes is reduced to a minimum since the product is completed according to the specified shape and size.

Uses of CNC Machines in Fabricating Custom Springs

There are also CNC wire forming and wire bending machines. These machines use special technology that enables them to fabricate conventional and custom-made wire forms for a wide variety of products such as handles, hangers, mechanical fasteners, and all kinds of tension springs.

Most of us have used spring products that were fabricated using these types of machines. These include the most common bedsprings and cushion springs for sofa and other upholstered furniture.

Rapid Prototyping and Production Runs

Most spring manufacturers now use CNC machines because of their conveniences. They are now able to fabricate prototypes in a very fast and less expensive manner. Just by inputting the design of the prototype in the machine’s computer, you can be sure that the item that it will turn out will be just exactly what was drawn in the plan.

Instead of expensive tooling process, which takes too much time to finish and too many raw materials wasted, these machines can turn out exact prototypes in any number in just a short time.

Manufacturers of springs usually have their engineers and craftsmen trained in the efficient use of these machines. So as a spring manufacturer, you are sure to save a lot of money in time, effort and materials because of the perfect operation of CNC machines.

There will be no difficulty in replicating any delicate component or spare parts of equipment if these special machines are used. If they can fabricate custom springs, they can sure make any component part of any type of machine.

The defining factor is that you need to have the correct plan or drawing of the part, that specifies its size, shape, and even its texture.
