Shaped Wires | RDO Springs french spring specialist
Shaped wires are round wires that have been shaped with functions that may or may not be springy.
They are used in many different fields of activity and there are several hundred different applications. Every day, a new product reference is created at RDO Springs.
MANUFACTURING PROCESS :
Small run (<250 parts), Medium run (<100,000 parts)
About ten machines are currently used to manufacture this type of products
Production is subject to an important adjustment phase in order to check the required characteristics based on the wire used.
CALCULATIONS – PLANS – TECHNICAL QUOTATION :
These products are produced to plan.
It is also important to know how these products will be used in order to take into account their context of use.
Numerous useful aspects are required to manufacture them, which implies obtaining a well-dimensioned plan that sets out your specific requirements.
Our engineering and design department will be able to answer your requests because we have considerable expertise in this area.
RDO Springs has :
Dozens of very modern manufacturing machines to produce these springs.
Several recent software programs to calculate dimensions and static and dynamic loads on springs,
All the necessary control instruments to check the required dimensions (shadowgraph, measurements taken via imaging, 2D LED, 3D LED, etc.)
FINAL TREATMENT OF THE MANUFACTURED SPRING :
Several million combinations are possible depending on the mechanical characteristics required on the dimensions or the resistances.
To ensure that a spring meets your requirements over time, heat treatments (ovens) are performed. Chemical treatments can also be performed (tribofinishing or passivation) in order to guarantee these characteristics over time.
RDO Springs has two modern production lines for these operations.
Subcontracting operations (painting, cataphoresis and chemical treatments) can be performed by a subcontractor located near our manufacturing facility.
