Micro springs are tiny compression or coil springs that are perfect for use in many different types of devices. Our springs are designed to provide the ideal level of tension for your needs. We work with our customers to determine the spring dimensions so the fit is always perfect.
You may be surprised to learn how many different devices require the inclusion of micro spring. Many of the medical devices used in clinics, hospitals, and other health care facilities require the use of custom springs. This is especially true for miniature devices like medical cameras that are used for procedures like colonoscopies or as an alternative to exploratory surgery. Some hearing aid designs include this type of spring. Whatever the application, Custom Springs Corporation has the experience and the facilities to ensure that the springs you receive are always just right for the intended use.
Two of the most common types of springs are micro springs and clock springs, and they both have many uses that drive some of the most common machinery out there. However, a clock spring is not a type of micro spring, and it is not used inside of a clock at all.
Micro springs serve many uses, just as their full-sized counterparts, and they come in a wide variety of shapes, sizes, and materials. You can find round, square, and rectangular wire as well as wire with special sections. Micro springs may be constructed from any number of materials, including brass, cobalt alloy, gold, commercial music wire, platinum, silver, stainless alloys, nickel, titanium, and patented alloys. Finally, you can find different types of micro springs for any need, including compression, extension, torsion, and even double torsion springs. They are available in barrel, cone, and hourglass shapes to suit any application.
Micro springs are used in a number of applications, including in tiny cameras, surgical devices like pacemakers, and even inside hearing aids. These springs must be manufactured perfectly in order to serve their intended purposes, and we can work with tiny bits of wire to create springs to suit any need imaginable. Wires down to 0.1mm in diameter make up our micro springs, and we understand your unique specifications. Micro springs are also used in devices such as clocks, pocket watches, and wristwatches to help keep precise time and movement.
