Ranging in size from .003 inches to .125 inches thick, Atlantic Precision Springs’ spring clip fasteners are typically made from materials such as carbon steel and stainless steel. These materials are available in all grades and tempers, allowing you to customize your product to fit any specific requirements.
The manufacturing processes at Atlantic Precision Spring are unique and what ultimately sets us apart from the competition. The use of annealed material is vital in order for the high carbon steel to undergo complex forming. The material is then heat-treated and tempered to obtain its full spring characteristics. Stainless steel is the most common choice due to its resistance to corrosion. Zinc or nickel plate finishes can be applied when the final product calls for rust prevention.
The production method is dependent on these characteristics of the part:
- Material type
- Material thickness
- Overall size
