The science of springs is not just about coiled forms and spirals, and many springs don’t use a coil form at all. Flat springs are a prime example of this fact, and as their name suggests they are instead simply created from a piece of flat material using forming and pressing. There’s no set shape for a flat spring to conform to, as it depends upon their designated purpose, and the term flat spring (or sometimes ‘leaf spring’) can cover a multitude of extremely diverse components. These springs might look odd at first, but they are instrumental in a variety of very common mechanisms, including electrical contacts and typical systems within car suspension.
In the European Springs and Pressings Ltd stock catalogue, we have around eleven separate categories of flat springs and fasteners, and many of the more usual requirements for these springs can all be catered for using these proven forms. However, like all of our spring types, we can also provide a variant design if you require us to. Although a standard spring saves both time and money, sometimes a specific need necessitates a more particular design, and with our years of expertise we can create a genuinely bespoke design to match with your exact blueprint.
Our state of the art facilities are equipped with 24 progression power and multi-slide presses, along with nearly 40 single stroke presses, so we can produce either single components on a sample basis or meet the largest of orders with equal ease, so whether you need tens or millions of flat springs we’ll undoubtedly be able to offer you an efficient service at very competitive prices.
