We have extensive experience in producing spring parts from wire or strip using various types of metal. Typical parts produced to customers’ specifications include:
- Tiny phosphor bronze spring contacts for insertion and soldering into printed circuit boards.
- Spring stainless ‘U’ core clips for holding transformer stacks together.
- Battery terminals produced from nickel silver.
- 'R' clips made from spring wire.
Some of these spring clips and contacts are produced from tooling run in standard power presses but most are manufactured on our multi-slide machines.
Spring clips, contacts and terminals are notoriously difficult to design and produce without prototyping and testing. To get accurate test data and reliable results it’s often necessary to have near production quality parts for this phase of product development. We can solve this problem by producing parts with our prototype tooling system.
