Many companies have been forced to shut doors or are still unable to operate to their full capacity. We’re pleased to say that Airedale Springs, however, are working as normal.
Because we’re still in the midst of a global pandemic, Airedale Springs continue to help those in the medical industry as much as possible. As compression spring manufacturers, we’ve been fulfilling orders for many different sectors, even as we’re still operating with minimal staff, so we’re more than capable of manufacturing urgent orders if needed.
As leading experts in spring manufacturing, our knowledge of springs is second-nature to us, but we know this is not the case for everyone else. This makes it harder to differentiate between manufacturers, as it can be difficult to tell which one best one suits your needs.
Here at Airedale Springs, we are passionate about the range of springs that we stock. You will most likely be familiar with compression springs, tension springs and torsion springs, since these are some of the most popular types of springs.
Springs are not a new invention. They’ve been used for many different applications for centuries, from mechanical parts to modern technology – and, of course, springs are also a crucial element of the medical sector. They’re found in everything from hospital beds to life-saving pieces of equipment, such as ventilators.

Nowadays, these bikes are hand brazed at Brompton’s… Continue Reading …
We’ve already written about the importance of choosing the right materials for springs, but now we’re focusing specifically on the electronics sector. Not all materials are right for electronics – for example, strength, conductivity, resistance to heat and resistance to corrosion are crucial in the sector – so this needs to be taken into account.
