SAFE, RELIABLE & EFFECTIVE SPRINGS

Springs are often critical components within equipment and controls systems and the need for consistent performance is essential.  In-service spring failures can be frustrating, leading to product recalls, business interruption and loss of revenue - impacting on reputation and consumer trust. We've been testing, researching and working with springs every day for over 70 years, giving us the edge when it comes to problem solving.  There's nothing we haven't seen before. 

IMPARTING KNOWLEDGE AND EXPERIENCE

We believe that not only is it vital to understand the mechanism of a failure and its root cause, but to ascertain what preventative measures can be implemented to reduce the risk of failure arising again.  Our lab is solely dedicated to spring testing and our highly trained staff deal with failures everyday - offering recommendations and technical in-sight that no other lab can offer.
