Springtech: Product Performance and Reliability

Spring design can sometimes be a low priority when developing a new valve or actuator but as Springtech explain, working with their specialist engineers early in a project can reap significant rewards in overall product performance and reliability.

It’s not an unfamiliar issue; an OEM customer calls the engineering team at Springtech to explore their spring requirements but the valve design is nearly finalised and compromises with this most critical of components, which could negatively impact valve performance and reliability, may have to be made. The solution is simple – get in contact early!

Springtech have been designing, developing and manufacturing springs, wireforms and pressings for a diverse, global customer base for over 50 years. Their aim is always to offer a tailored, full-service solution from initial concept design through to fullscale manufacture and ongoing lifetime product support. Their specialist engineering team have a wealth of experience in designing products for a wide diversity of applications, especially those where working conditions can be demanding in the extreme.

Employing the latest CAD technology Springtech engineers are able to design compression, extension or torsion springs along with wireforms and pressings which are tailored to meet exacting customer specifications. Unlike other manufacturers who only offer ‘off-the-shelf’ products; Springtech always advise customers on the best-fit product solution for their specific requirements.

Utilising a unique knowledgebase and having invested in an extensive inventory of materials suitable for a wide spectrum of applications, including super alloys and Nace-compliant materials, is critical to Springtech’s ability to deliver fast turnaround of product prototypes and compliance with customer production schedules.

Along with the in-house Design Centre, Springtech also has a fully equipped tool room, staffed by specialist technicians, which enables the design, testing and production of high performance, precision tooling to ensure exacting conformity to customer specifications.

To complete their full-service offer, Springtech has invested over many years in advanced manufacturing facilities capable of low and high volume production runs backed by a rigorous ISO9001 approved quality, testing and inspection system.

So, if you are developing valves or actuators and have spring requirements, or looking to change supplier for an existing product, talk to the specialists at Springtech.
