Torsion springs are produced on modern CNC machines with 100% control of leg position, automatic adjustment of spring characteristics and elimination of unsuitable springs.

vibam torsion springs

Production batches range from one piece to large-scale production.

We mostly produce springs based on customer drawings, but we can also advise you with development of new springs and help you come up with the best solution.

At the customer’s request we can equip each shipment with a measurement sheet containing the required data (F1, F2, cp, cpk…).

 

Wire diameter: from 0.35 to 3.5 mm

Spring shapes: cylindrical, conical, barrel and double torsion springs or special shapes

Leg shapes: straight legs (shape 1), bent outwards (shape 2), bent alongside the body of the spring (shape 3), bent towards the centre (shape 4), special shapes in line with customer requirements.

Materials: patented spring wires (EN 10270-1), oil-hardened spring wires (EN 10270-2), non-corrodible spring wires (EN10270-3), zinc-coated spring wires, conducting wires (CuSn) etc.

The list of materials can be seen here.

Additional treatment: micro-forging

Surface treatment: phosphatizing, bluing, zinc-coating, nickel-coating, passivation, powder-coating, application of special anti-corrosion or anti-slip coating etc.
