What makes a good tension springs manufacturer? One way of working is to have your own production in combination with a wide network of manufacturers to ensure quality and safe deliveries.
Quality control is crucial for any kind of production and manufacturing tension springs is no exception. With detailed theoretical models spring properties can be measured and calculated for good accuracy and investments in measuring equipment are necessary.
Cars have door locks. I wonder if the tension springs used in this kind of mechanism are standard in size or if they have to be specially made for each car type or brand?
As the climate is getting warmer and we are entering summer the work in the garden becomes more and more frequent. But don’t forget to lock the door when you’re out back in your garden. And make sure the door locks are good enough, maybe with brand new tension springs.
One surface treatment alternative for example tension springs is teflon (PTFE). This is a very suitable surface treatment when low friction, good insulation and chemical resistance is required. The working temperature range from -190 up to +260°C.
You probably know by now that spring sockets can be used for mounting tension springs. It’s easily done to adjust the spring force just by screwing the socket in or out. The image below shows a springs where the force can be adjusted just like that.
I read an article about tension springs in transmissions. Apparently an american company have found a way to lower the costs for mechanics buying transmission replacement online. It’s good to know that not all things was better in the old days. Before the 1980s the transmissions were in use with tension springs and mechanical parts that, if you were unlucky, could break down without any warning at all.
Have you ever been to the zoo and thought how happy the animals are locked away behind high fences and huge door locks? I have. Several times actually. Hopefully the door locks consist of good quality tension springs because even though the animals are beautiful to watch I prefer watching them from a distance.
In any company it’s important to take responsibility for people, environment and ethics.When it comes to tension springs manufacturers this means making as little impact as possible on the environment during production, minimize waste products and recycle as much as possible.
