Lee Spring has launched a custom service for special springs on urgent demand.
The company’s ex-stock 25,000-plus range of catalogue springs have long been used by rolling stock manufacturers. Standards include compression springs, torsion springs and extension springs, with application on braking systems, inter-carriage connecting systems, bogie suspensions, buffers, signalling and track actuators.
Lee Spring’s custom capability includes the capacity to supply special springs in exotic alloys such as Inconel, Hastelloy and Elgiloy, which offer the extraordinary performance necessary for applications with excessive heat build-up or excessive strength requirements. In addition, rail usage often places very high demands on materials, in particular great longevity with high corrosion resistance to de-icing fluids and highly aggressive braking system waste products. Special alloys and custom designs can provide these characteristics in a Lee Spring supply chain based in the UK and Germany for Europe-wide delivery.
