Clock springs are not springs found inside of clocks. Rather, they are coils that expand and contract as the steering wheel turns, allowing electrical continuity for airbag components. Thus, the clock spring in a steering wheel keeps the electrical parts of the horn, cruise control, radio controls, airbags, and more intact, even as the steering wheel turns. These clock springs are very carefully designed, and they must be in order to prevent severing electrical connections. Clock springs differ based on the make of the vehicle, and there are single-stage as well as dual-stage clock springs.
Whether you are a consumer who wants to replace a clock spring after an airbag deployment or you need to design a brand new clock spring for a prototype vehicle, we can help you. In the case of a repair, you only need to replace the clock spring once the airbag has deployed. The heat exchange that occurs when the airbag triggers actually melts the connectors inside of the cylinder, and some electrical components will no longer work. Be sure to order the right type of clock spring, and if you are unsure, we can certainly help you.
Taking advantage of our custom designed micro springs is one of the best ways to continue using older equipment or appliances. While the original manufacturer may not produce the springs any longer, and you are not happy with the products offered by the third parties who took over the spring production, we are the perfect solution.
Clock springs and micro springs are just two of the components we design for household, commercial, and industrial applications. From a tiny pocket watch to the electronic components in your car, these springs play vital roles in ensuring their function. Please feel free to contact us with questions about ordering or designing new micro springs or clock springs.
