IST produces software to assist in the design of springs and the selection of spring materials, and is currently developing ‘Springboard’ – an integration platform to link together all parts of the spring industry supply chain, from material sourcing through to manufacture and testing.

Design Software

IST’s world-class design software allows design and validation work to be carried out on a range of spring types.

Spring Calculator Professional (SCP) is our Windows desktop solution.

Spring Calculator is our web-based design and validation package, available as a subscription service to any web browser.

Hosted Spring Calculator is our software-as-a-service version of SCP, allowing the software to be rented.

Spring Material Selector

Our Spring Material Selector software is an online database of materials suitable for use in spring designs. This is a subscription service that can be accessed on any modern web browser.

Further details can be found below.

Springboard

Springboard is IST’s newly developed information management system that enables the flow of data throughout your organisation. Springboard facilitates industrial integration, increasing productivity and improving efficiency.

Further details are available below.

Spring Material Selector

Spring Material Selector

The Spring Material Selector from IST is a unique online database of spring materials, allowing you to quickly identify wire or strip grades for spring applications.

Hundreds of material specifications and grades from around the world are included, giving information on physical and mechanical properties. Guidance is also given for corrosion resistance and corrosion protection, heat treatment, etc.

You can search by spring type, operating temperature, the environment in which the spring will be working, or find materials that match a specific chemical composition. When you’ve selected a specifiction, full mechanical properties are given. You are also shown a list of related specifications from other standards around the world are listed, so that you can compare them.

Conversion to PDF files allows you to save a specification, email it, and of course print it.

Because Spring Material Selector is hosted on IST’s servers, it is kept up to date automatically. We are committed to continually improving the quality of our information, and are planning to add a number of additional national standards as well as more commercial grades.

HOW CAN SPRINGBOARD HELP ME?

By connecting spring design software, coiling machines, spring load and torque testers, fatigue testers, heat treatment ovens and various sensors throughout your manufacturing process, you can help eliminate human error and duplication of work.

Springboard will help you reduce costs through increased efficiency and provide more visibility and ease of access to shop floor data.

Multi-site operations will be able to access data from any connected device, anywhere in the world thanks to Springboard’s fully documented API.

Springboard – developed for spring people by spring people.

WHAT EQUIPMENT CAN I CONNECT?

Initially we are concentrating on IST-developed software and machines, but we are in discussions with other suppliers. Our aim is to integrate as much third-party technology as we possibly can. If you make anything that you think could be useful, please get in touch!
