Custom Flat Springs

Spring Works Utah Inc.

Spring Works Utah Inc. is the top manufacturer of the highest quality custom flat springs, spring clips, metal stampings, electrical contacts, wave washers, bow springs, constant force springs, and spiral springs to leading manufacturers world wide.

Spring Clips

Flat Springs

Spring clips are fasteners that grip inserted components through spring tension. Generally, spring clips are u-shaped, but they are also available in other shapes; both clothes pins and binder clips are types of unusually shaped spring clips. A wide range of materials are used in the manufacture of spring clips, including steel, plastic, wood, and various alloys. The material used and its thickness, as well as design, determine the clips strength.

Fourslide Stampings

Flat Springs

Fourslide metal stamping is a metal forming process in which flat stock sheet metal, formed from metals such as steel, aluminum, zinc, nickel and titanium, etc., is shaped into predetermined parts in a stamping press. During press operation, the slide, or ram, maintains movement to and from a motionless table called a press bed. The die, a press tool consisting of a specially designed cavity, shapes metal parts from the inserted sheet metal. The upper component of the die connects to the press slide, and the lower component connects to the press bed. A die component called the punch performs the necessary shaping operation by pushing the sheet metal through the die.

Metal Clips

Flat Springs

Metal spring clips come in all shapes and sizes. It might attach the penlight to your keychain, keep your distributor cap in place or keep your glove box closed snugly. Whatever its function, odds are the best way to make it is with the Fourslide process. Nobody knows more about making your metal spring clip than Fourslide Spring and Stamping.

Metal Stampings

Flat Springs

Metal Stamping is a process that use dies to transform flat metal sheets into shapes. Odds are you have a product in your home that has parts created through metal stamping because it is a process used in everything from your household appliances to automotive industries. This process is used for producing parts for large machinery, but the metal sheets can also be molded into shapes for household items like pots and pans.

Bow Springs

Flat Springs

A bow spring is commonly manufactured from flat bar or strip. A bow spring is formed with an arc at or near the center and is supported on both ends with the force applied to the center of the arc.A Cantilever Spring is made from the same materials but is clamped on one end while the force is applied to the other. Edge style of the material can play an important role in these springs; square edge, round edge, as milled or precision machined, depending on your application.

Wave Washers

Flat Springs

Wave spring washers are commonly used as cushion springs or spacers on a shaft in many applications. They are designed with a moderate load capacity with a moderate deflection range. Wave spring washers have linear load-deflection characteristics to approximately 80% of maximum deflection.

Clock Springs

Flat Springs

In vehicle steering systems a clock spring or clockspring is a spiral-wound special rotary electrical connector which allows a vehicle's steering wheel to turn while still making an electrical connection between the steering wheel airbag and/or the vehicle's horn and other devices and the vehicle's electrical systems. Clock Springs are constructed by winding a strip of spring-tempered material on an arbor in a circular case (keeper). The spring stores rotational energy by being stressed when wound around the arbor. The spring delivers rotational energy to the arbor when it rotates, by expanding to the maximum curvature allowed by the keeper.

Belleville Washers

Flat Springs

A Belleville washer is a type of spring shaped like a washer. It has a frusto-conical shape which gives the washer a spring characteristic. Belleville washers are typically used as springs, or to apply a pre-load of flexible quality to a bolted joint or bearing. Some properties of Belleville washers include: high fatigue life, better use of space, low creep tendency, high load capacity with a small spring deflection.[4] and possibility for high hysteresis (damping) by stacking several belleville washers on top of each other in the same direction.

Variable Force Springs

Flat Springs

Variable force springs are specially designed and manufactured for use in Point-of-Purchase (POP) displays that use flat steel springsariable force springs are specially designed and manufactured for use in Point-of-Purchase (POP) displays that use flat steel springs. These positive gradient variable force springs push the product forward in horizontal POP displays or upwards in vertical displays to keep the product visible, neat and orderly, so customers will purchase more. Horizontal POP displays with variable force springs are preferable to gravity feed displays because they save valuable space - a huge consideration in retail displays.

Curved Washers

Flat Springs

The cylindrically curved washer is well suited for applications requiring flexibility and light loads (from ounces up to about a hundred pounds) and repeated cycles through a range of motion. Of the cylindrically curved, wave and Belleville types, the cylindrically curved washer exhibits the most uniform spring constant over the widest range of deflection.

Power Springs

Flat Springs

Power springs are a popular type of constant coil springs, which are also commonly known as recoil springs, motor springs, or clock springs. These springs are used to store and release a rotational energy in the form of torque. Power springs are the oldest form of flat spring and the most common type in use today. Hunter Spring has a wealth of experience in the design and manufacture of power springs. This type of spring is produced by tightly winding tempered spring material on an arbor and attaching the free end to a metal or plastic case.

Retaining Rings

Flat Springs

A retaining ring is a fastener that holds components or assemblies onto a shaft or in a housing/bore when installed in a groove. Once installed, the exposed portion acts as a shoulder which retains the specific component or assembly. Circlips are a type of retaining ring. Self-locking retaining rings may be installed in applications where there is no groove.

Spiral Springs

Flat Springs

Spiral springs are a type of springs, which are made from rectangular metal strips that have been wound into a flat spiral. These springs are designed to store and release rotational energy in the form of torque. One of the most popular types of spiral springs are constant coil springs, which are so named because they exert nearly a constant restraining force to resist uncoiling. Therefore, when the strip is extended, the inherent stress resists the loading force at nearly a constant rate.
