Comprehensive supplier through wide range of products

The images of products on this website give a general survey of the kinds of springs we offer.  In accordance with their applications, a great variety of spring forms are possible.  By processing many different qualities of materials, from patented spring steel wires and high-strength chrome silicon alloy spring wires to acid-, corrosion- and heat-resistant spring materials, we can meet the most varied requirements.  Numerous surface treatment methods are at our disposal, coatings with epoxy, polyester, KTL, Dacromet and Delta, as well as galvanic treatments.

Project-related mounting

When components are mounted in the spring manufacturer’s plant, cost benefits can be achieved in many cases.  Make use of our experience with the installation of, for instance, screw-in elements, ropes, chains, spring connections and plastic collars.  What is more, we can, if you so require, take on the logistics of the complete assembly.
