Flat Springs are typically stamped (but also machined & wound), and manufactured from flat stock. These springs are generally high force relative to the space occupied Flat parts like other catalog products & our engineered solutions are manufactured to the highest quality. Flat springs, in general, produce higher forces in shorter heights but have shorter deflections.
Flat Springs are designed & manufactured within proper stress levels, and are ready to ship.
Mechanical Wire Springs are coiled spring products in a variety of cross sections and forms. When comparing coil springs to flat/stamped springs, they offer increased travel, but with lower loads. Our mechanical springs are manufactured to the highest quality and are stocked and ready to ship. Each spring is designed within proper stress levels and manufacturing limits.
