Western Spring Manufacturing saves Super Bowl 50!...
Well, not really, but we did help make Levi's Stadium more visually appealing. Western Spring Mfg. worked closely with our customer that manufactures signage for a variety of applications. They use a series of custom extension springs to hold perforated banners tight. The springs allow the banner to have a bit of give in brisk winds. The problem with the Super Bowl project was that the banner signage being larger than normal was so large, the current spring design would not hold the banner.

Western Spring Mfg. helped assist the customer and suggested a new spring design that allowed for more load and more available deflection. The design was calculated on cutting edge spring design software that our engineers utilize to assist our clients with custom orders. These factors can be figured based on mathematical algorithms to predict available deflection/stress of the spring, estimated cycle life, material comparisons, etc ( explain etc.) . The new spring design was presented to the customer via a detailed PDF report. The customer approved the preliminary design alterations, then we provided samples to the client for evaluation. The production team at Western Spring Mfg. was able to produce sample springs within 24 hours, and shipped the parts to the customer for arrival the next day. The customer called just hours after the parts had been delivered to provide the good news that the parts worked as planned.

Our next step was to build the production order of 1000 zinc plated springs as quickly as possible. Our production team “pulled a rabbit out of a hat” and completed the 1000 custom springs within 48 hours. Once ready for zinc plating, our strategic partners in metal finishing quickly got to work to expedite the order within 24 hours.

From start to finish the evaluation, re-design and production of the custom springs took a little less than one week total time. Quality precision parts were delivered on time to meet the customer’s deadline for installation at Levi Stadium, and therefore Super Bowl 50 was saved and another Western Spring Mfg. customer was satisfied…

We love custom orders. Call Us Today! We are here to help!

Flat springs are usually made out of strip material that is formed as annealed stock then heat treated to a spring temper.  The material and size options are endless.  Pre-tempered material is also an option for simple flat springs.  Prototypes to production, quantities can be sourced at Western Spring. We can work with you to assist in designing a product that works for your application.

Springs are needed nearly everywhere. As
there is a huge variety of applications and a lot of
aspects to be considered, the requirements of all
spring applications can’t be satisfied with a few
standardized spring products. Spring manufactur-
ers can be assured of their competitiveness if they
have experience, mental flexibility, an aptitude for
technical contexts, product and production know-
how, modern production equipment, and creativity
to help their customers discover further spring
applications and new markets.

Function Principle

Regardless of the particular function of a spring,
it can be said that all springs work according to
a principle: By changing their shape, they store,
transform or set mechanical energy free. Springs are
elastic, meaning they return to their initial shape
after having been unloaded. Springs are also used
to absorb impacts or vibrations.
