Precision Mechanical Springs for Critical Applications

A mechanical spring is a metal wire spring functioning in a mechanism, which slides, rotates, extends, compresses, pulls, and exerts force, when equal or higher force is applied to it. A spring mechanism can exert rotational force, pressure, or pulling strength in a number of ways. These types of springs are coiled products that come in a wide range of forms and cross sections, and can be customized. SMSC manufactures these springs, which can be used for important applications in industries such as oil and gas, military, and aerospace, and many more. With the help of precision engineering, it becomes easier to manufacture cutting-edge products.
