June 2012 Newsletter

Airedale Springs increases its product range by over 60% after a £2million investment.

We are pleased to announce the completion of the first phase of our investment programme.

A broad range of new equipment including some of the very latest and most advanced spring making machinery available in the world has been installed in our new factory for the production of an extended range of Compression, Extension/Tension, Torsion Springs and Wire Forms.

Following the devastating loss of our manufacturing facility to fire almost 2 years ago, Airedale Springs has been in a position of purchasing a broad range of springs from other manufacturers. This has given us a greater insight into the industry and our investment programme has been developed to address some of the issues that we encountered during this time.

We have increased our CNC production wire size range manufacturing Helical Springs to 8.0mm wire diameter and Wire Forms to 4.10mm wire diameter.

Previously we were limited to 3.0mm and 2.5mm diameter wire respectively.

See our plant list of new machinery below

Some of the machines are non-standard and have been enhanced with extras to greatly improve speed and overall capability.

All our CNC machines are monitored 24/7 and can be viewed by our staff anywhere and at anytime using the latest CCTV technology. This facility enables us to be more effective in using the machinery out of normal hours, enabling our team of setters to attend when necessary to help ensure maximum utlilisation.

We have also made a substantial investment in machines for supporting operations such as Grinding, Stress relieving, Spring Testing, Finishing, Material handling, IT, Security and Customer Service.

Additional Flat Spring and Pressing Capabilities

We already had capabilities to manufacture a broad range of flat springs and pressings using equipment obtained over the last 2 years. This type of work will continue to be maintained by our skilled springmakers to enable us to offer an even wider product range to our clients.

We are in the in the process of planning visits to our new factory for our current and potential Customers, Suppliers and other interested guests such as relatives of employees and local enterprises.
