Sample production - sampling of metal springs

The sampling of metal springs serves to check and release the quality before the actual series production.
The sampling and prototyping of metal springs should ensure quality, precision and the fulfillment of customer requirements in series production.

The sampling and creation of samples and prototypes is a crucial step before mass production of metal springs. This process ensures that the metal springs meet the high quality standards and specified requirements.
The sampling documents and documents such as EMPB, PPAP and IMDS are indispensable for a smooth production process during sampling.

Sampling of metal springs: An important quality assurance step

Sampling is an important and critical step to ensure metal springs meet required quality standards. Samples and prototypes are made, which are subjected to thorough testing and evaluation.

Sampling documents according to EMPB, PPAP and IMDS:

a) EMPB (Part-Feature-Process-Description):
EMPB is part of the VDA 6.3 standard and is used to document and evaluate production processes. It ensures that the metal springs are manufactured in accordance with the specified specifications.
b) PPAP (Production Part Approval Process):
PPAP is a standardized process for releasing serial products. Extensive documents are created to prove the quality and ability to manufacture metal springs.
c) IMDS (International Material Data System):
IMDS is a system for recording and managing material data. It is particularly important to ensure compliance with environmental regulations and traceability of the materials used in the manufacture of metal springs.

Precision and accuracy in prototyping

The creation of samples and prototypes requires a high level of precision and accuracy to ensure that the metal springs meet the specified requirements are equivalent to. This includes the selection of the right materials, the precise implementation of the design drawings and the use of modern manufacturing technologies.

Different types of metal springs and their specific requirements

a) Special springs:
Special springs are manufactured individually according to customer requirements and require close cooperation between manufacturer and customer in order to understand and implement the specific requirements.
b) Stamped and bent parts:
This type of metal spring is made by stamping and bending metal sheets. Sampling ensures that the springs have the desired shape, dimensions and strength.
c) Torsion springs:
Torsion springs are special springs with curved arms that offer high flexibility and resilience. The correct bending radii, distances and tolerances are checked during sampling.
d) Wire bending parts:
Wire bending parts are bent from wire materials and are available in various shapes and sizes. The sampling ensures the correct bending, dimension and strength of the springs.

Sampling and prototyping play a crucial role in the manufacture of metal springs. The quality and conformity of the springs is ensured through the use of sampling documents such as EMPB, PPAP and IMDS. When sampling different types of metal springs, specific requirements, precision and accuracy must be taken into account. This meticulous process ensures that metal springs, in small and large quantities, meet high quality standards and meet customers' requirements.

We manufacture metal springs as samples and prototypes for our customers. In the production of the springs as samples and prototypes, we offer our customers maximum support, in order to realize series-ready springs as samples or prototypes as quickly as possible.

In addition to the production of samples and prototypes, we offer our customers a wide range of sampling documents as EMPB according to VDA 6.3 or PPAP.

For our customers from the automotive industry, we can create the appropriate IMDS entries for the respective springs or bent wire parts on request.
