Elgiloy is a specially fabricated alloy used in wire forms and spring applications. Elgiloy is a patented cobalt-base alloy compounded of cobalt, chromium, nickel, molybdenum, manganese, beryllium, carbon and iron. It can be used as-is or heat-treated.
All springs are constructed to have an initial tension, that force that keeps the coils together in a set position. As a measurement, initial tension is the load or force necessary to overcome the internal force to start coil separation. How to calculate spring tension, and its importance will help to determine how effectively a… Read more »
Springs are ubiquitous mechanical components found in a wide range of machines and devices—from consumer goods to large-scale industrial equipment. For manufacturing, custom spring design specifications are essential to meet component requirements. Size, load weight, and material are necessary to fulfill design specifications. Before any of those specifications can be met, engineers will determine which… Read more »
James Spring & Wire has extensive experience in custom designing and manufacturing compression limiters to meet any application. Compression limiters are used to protect plastic parts and components from damage due to the tightening load of a bolt or screw. Depending on the strength requirements of your specific application we can custom design a compression… Read more »
Custom spring manufacturing is designed for customized or unique spring applications for products. Determining how springs are made relates to the application. Custom springs are made to meet specific design requirements for products across multiple industrial sectors—aerospace, automotive, medical, IT and AI, trades and construction, agriculture, manufacturing, and so on. They can vary greatly with… Read more »
Titanium resists corrosion and is bio-compatible. Titanium also has the ability to join with human bone, which is one of the reasons it is used so often in the medical industry. Titanium metal is used in medical and surgical applications, such as surgical titanium instruments, orthopedic titanium rods, titanium pins, and titanium plates.
Our custom compression springs can be used to provide resistance for strength conditioning and muscle development in fitness equipment. We can manufacturing springs with light, medium or high compression to provide a range of resistance levels. Light compression springs provide up to 20lbs of resistance and are useful in sporting goods equipment for beginners or… Read more »
In order for a compression spring application to perform properly in a device, it must meet an expected force at a particular height. The importance cannot be understated—measuring compression springs are a design function necessary to meet a device’s application requirements. That device could be a retractable pen, an automobile’s suspension, a mining or oilfield… Read more »
James Spring & Wire is an ITAR and FDA registered custom spring manufacturer with experience manufacturing mil-spec springs that meet all military specification requirements for use in aerospace, military and defense applications.
A spring is an elastic device or component that is manufactured by a spring company for numerous industrial applications. Most have a helical or coil shape with many design functions, depending on the application, to maintain a force between objects or contacting surfaces, or to exert or absorb a shock. Springs store and release mechanical… Read more »
