Benefits of Flat Wire Springs

Flat Wire Springs | KB DeltaYou don’t have to look very deeply into your air compressor unit to realize that springs are the life of your device. Springs receive an enormous amount of pressure and have to function perfectly thousands or millions of times a day to execute efficient production. Springs, whether round or flat wire springs, are therefore vulnerable to wear and tear and should be inspected on a regular basis to ensure that they are working properly. Springs also need periodic replacements, and you should be able to recognize the signs that your springs are wearing out and need to be replaced. Locating a reliable company that will provide you with replacement springs made of the right materials and that fit your machinery perfectly can be a challenge. Opt for a company that has many years of experience working with air compressor parts and has positive customer reviews.

What You Should Know About Flat Wire Springs

Flat wire springs, as the name suggests, are composed of flat wire and have a rectangular cross-section. You can find them in a variety of sizes and are used in ballpoint pens, shock absorbers, switches and many more items. These springs are made from round wires that are rolled into a flat design. Popular materials for these types of springs include brass, titanium, copper and tantalum. Many people purchase brass springs to save money, but they tend to wear out more quickly than other materials. Stainless steel is an affordable material for long-lasting springs

Flat wire springs are essential for preventing failures in production. Springs made of flat wire are often regarded as superior to round wire because the flat design is more compressed and will give less stress on the wire. Round wire springs tend to wear out and break more easily while the flat design does not become misshapen readily with repeated stress. In addition, flat wire springs can store more energy which results in a greater amount of force applied. Flat wire springs contain generous spaces between loops which can mitigate force because the pressure is significantly spread out.

Flat wire springs are not as long as regular types of spring. This helps conserve space and provide more power for the spring. These items are incredibly versatile and can be used for a full range of applications. You can also order flat wire springs custom-designed for your specific compressor. These springs can withstand heavy loads and require less frequent replacements than other types of springs.

Quality Manufacturing and Design

Flat wire springs provide intrinsic advantages to round wire items. However, you don’t simply want any type of flat wire spring, but varieties that are best-suited to your compressor or other machinery. Many people opt for custom-designed flat springs for greater efficiency and resilience. Because springs are exposed to the elements and tend to decay more quickly than other compressor parts, you may feel it is worthwhile to have springs created especially for your applications and your machinery. Finding springs with precise designs can make your air compressor last longer and more efficiently. In addition, if you are working with the company you trust, you can easily order more springs as needed from the same company, because they will have your specifications on record.

When consulting with a company that creates custom flat wire springs, you will want to determine what kind of materials are right for you. Experts will design your spring according to advanced geometry and will simulate the operation of the spring through computer technology. After this phase, a prototype of the spring will be created and tested thoroughly for fatigue and stress resistance. Once your springs have been produced, you can start to enjoy more efficient operation of your machinery and a warranty that ensures proper functioning of your springs.

Choosing a Company

So much depends on the springs you use for production, so it is essential to find a company that creates all the parts you need for a properly functioning air compressor. In addition to springs, you will also make sure you have functioning sealing elements, metallic plates, and thermoplastic buttons. All of these parts require occasional placements, so it is a good idea to have a one-stop shop for your springs and other items. Look for a full service company that will not only sell you springs but custom-designed and tested components that create a perfect fit. Springs that are not designed for specific kind of air compressor tend not to function well and can wear out rapidly. A reliable company will manufacture your springs according to your specifications.

Time is of the essence for your production process and there is nothing more frustrating than waiting for new parts, including springs, to arrive while you have an urgent order to fill. Look for a supplier that not only creates the right kind of springs for your compressor with an absolutely perfect fit but can deliver springs promptly so there is no work interruption. Look for a company that has an established reputation and can go through the process of design, manufacturing, testing, and shipping quickly and efficiently. Such a company is also a go-to name when you need new parts urgently and want to make sure that you are receiving the quality that your machinery deserves. Make sure that any company you work with provides a reliable warranty in writing that spells out what is covered and what is not. Typically, parts are guaranteed for a year, unless the parts were not installed properly, were damaged accidentally and were exposed to corrosive materials.

Put a Spring in Your Step

Feel confident knowing that your machinery is equipped with the best springs you can buy. Flat wire springs are superior to the round counterparts and can work more forcefully under extensive pressure. Select the kind of material and design that is right for your machinery and will provide a reliable fit. A company that has a solid reputation and many years of experience will take you through every phase, including design, simulation, manufacturing and testing. Once you have found a reliable company to provide you with flat wire springs, build a lasting working relationship so you always have a reliable source for all of your air compressor parts.
