From innovative product development to reliable processes for high-volume production with a high level of vertical integration.
Winding –- coiling – bending
Use of CNC-controlled coiling machines
With rotating windings pins for optimized application of the spring ends
Reduced setup times
100% inspection of the unstressed spring length and diameter if required
Spring body coiled around a mandrel
CNC coiling machines
Laser and camera checks
CNC and stamping/bending machines
Reduced setup times
Laser and camera checks if required
3D bent parts
Hot tensioning / hot setting
Minimized relaxation of the spring in operation through higher tensions and temperatures during the process than in the actual application
Springs tensioned during hot tensioning in templates or with spacing in "press shoes". The springs are heat treated in furnaces while in this state
In the hot setting process, the springs are heated in a furnace in the free state and quenched with coolant under presses to the required length
Cold setting and 100% inspection
Use of automatic cold setting equipment
Measuring ranges: From 2 N, to 100 N, to 1000 N
100% inspection of spring lengths/forces, lengths/force deltas and spring rates
Load cells adjusted to the respective spring forces
Different machine designs for different quality requirements (tolerances)
Sorting of compression springs into separate classes
Spring end grinding
Grinding of larger wire diameters in a process in which the upper disc is moved down while the loading plate rotates continuously
Customized grinding technologies (machine and grinding disc qualities) for the grinding of patented drawn, oil-tempered and stainless steel wires and special alloys
Wire springs are manufactured for the most part from spring tempered round wires and profiles. The winding or coiling of the spring introduces high internal bending stresses that have a negative impact on the spring properties in terms of service life and usable spring force. Most of these stresses can be removed with a stress release process adapted to the material, at the same time producing an increase in the initial strength and an increase in the elastic yield strength in the material.
We set the properties of the springs to their optimum values with defined stress release regimes. We have a wide range of heat treatment systems in place, including convection, inert gas and vacuum furnaces.
For special materials, for use for example in high-temperature applications, we can offer systems with temperatures of up to 1,350° C.
Steel and ceramic shot peening
Shot-peening with steel balls of0.3 mm in diameter
Ceramic shot peening with glass beads from 150 to 250 microns in diameter
The process is used to introduce internal compressive stresses into the surface
