Machined torsion springs offer performance that wound alternatives simply cannot match.

Machined Torsion Springs from ABSSAC offer a range of advantages to end users. Being machined from a single piece of solid material, they can provide very precise linear deflection rates because they eliminate virtually all residual stresses. In a traditional, wire-wound spring, the spring rate can change over time.

Metal Bellows - Key enabling technology for a wide range of engineering applications

The versatile metal bellows play an essential role in controlling pressure, vacuum and motion, in a broad array of machine components and assemblies across numerous industry sectors. The process begins with a piece of aluminium stock or bar. Next the internal geometry of the electroform is machined into the aluminium to produce a mandrel.
