Types of Compression Springs

Compression springs are coil springs that hold mechanical energy in their compressed states. When these springs experience a compression load, they compress and become shorter, capturing and storing significant potential force. Once the load is diminished or removed, the stored energy forces the springs back to their original shapes and lengths. The following page provides […]

What is the Powder Coating Process?

powder coating process

Powder coating is an extremely popular finishing method across industrial and commercial applications. This common finishing technique provides metal or plastic components with an attractive, durable coating. The finish looks similar to paint, but uses a dry powder that adheres to the substrate through electrostatic charging. While typically applied to metal, powder coating can be […]

Comparing Metal Welding Techniques: MIG Welding vs. TIG Welding

mig vs tig welding

Welding is the process of joining two metals (e.g., steel, iron, aluminum, copper) or thermoplastics together. There are many ways to weld materials, and each process uses unique tools and techniques. For instance, hyperbaric (or underwater) welders use arc welding to join materials on boats and oil pipelines, while NASA uses advanced techniques like friction […]

What is the Compression Spring Manufacturing Process?

Compression Spring Manufacturing

Spring manufacturing requires an artistic touch. Manufacturers use many different techniques to create symmetrical springs that retain their ability to absorb shocks and store energy while keeping their shape over long periods of time. At Southern Spring and Stamping, we use coiling, winding, or bending processes to create high-quality springs through both manual and automated […]
