MACHINED SPRING VS WIRE-WOUND
SANTA MARIA, CA. June 3, 2009 — Differences in coil geometry enable machined springs to provide more precise performance, features and functions than can other, more traditional types of springs. There are big differences in performance, reliability, versatility, integrity, and cost effectiveness.
The bottom line is that machined springs offer more functions in a single spring than other more traditional springs, such as wire wound. They also add value, in terms of multi-part integration, time saved in handling, reliability, rates being linear, and dimensions being very precise. They reduce and/or control costs by raising overall productivity.
