Technical metal springs
Technical metal springs are springs that are made from metallic materials and are used for technical purposes in technical applications.
Technical metal springs are frequently used special or standardized machine elements that are used in many technical machines, devices, devices and everyday objects.
Metal springs are made with special, very different metallic spring materials made of wire or strip material in different shapes and sizes.
An essential property of technical metal springs is the elastic deformation when a force or torque is applied.
By using special elastic spring materials, the size of the elastic deformation can be greatly increased when a force or moment is applied.
The metal spring can store energy, whereby a restoring force, restoring torque, holding force, holding torque, closing force or closing moment acts.
Use and designs:
The use and design of technical metal springs are very diverse and varied.
Metal springs are used in numerous everyday products and household items such as office files, paper punches, door handles, doors, keyboards, roller doors, mixers, mixers, bicycles, cars, planes, ships, etc.
The designs, types and properties of metal springs are very different, as these are specially tailored to the function and application.
Some designs have proven to be very useful and will be used more often.
The standardized metal springs include compression springs, tension springs, torsion springs, spiral springs, bent wire parts and shaped springs and many more.
Construction and calculation:
In order to determine the appropriate construction or shape of a metal spring, the forces or moments, the path or angle of rotation and their direction should be determined or specified.
For example, if there is a longitudinal force with low lateral transverse forces (spring damper bicycle or car) and if this longitudinal force is to be supported or cushioned over a certain distance, a compression spring should be used.
To determine the size and shape of the metal spring, the forces, distances and the available installation space are necessary.
The size of metal springs can be determined or recalculated with the RS-Helix metal spring calculation program.

Production of technical metal springs
Reiner Schmid Produktions GmbH specializes in the production of technical springs.
Here you will find technical springs in various designs and dimensions.
We rely on the highest quality and versatile use for optimal application.
Technical springs that leave our house are perfectly matched to the respective application areas.
They are robust, durable and can withstand the highest demands.
We already ensure this with the selection of materials, in which we exclusively choose high quality materials.
Here you will find thigh and torsion springs, as well as bent wire parts and double-legged springs.
In addition, we offer you as technical springs pressure, tension springs and stamped and bent parts.
Technical springs in detail
An essential part of our range of technical springs is provided by torsion springs. Also known as torsion springs, these kinematic components take over the function of energy storage. In addition, they ensure the functionality of the individual components. On request, we manufacture technical springs of this type as individual components for you. When it comes to ensuring optimal distribution of forces on both spring bodies for torsion springs, double torsion springs are the right choice. We build on a wide range of different designs. As materials we use spring brass as well as brass wire and Inconel. Other materials include Nimonic, titanium wire and iron wire.
Advanced production for best quality
Technical springs in various designs are supplemented by our range of stamped and bent parts. Stamped bent parts are mainly used in the automotive and electrical industries. Their functionality allows them to be used in many other areas. Although they are small in size, they are based on essential tasks. To ensure the fulfillment of these, we offer stamped bent parts, which are manufactured to the highest possible precision. You can rely on high quality features. Here you will find stamped and bent parts in the material thicknesses from 0.2 to 1.2 mm and from 0.4 to 45 mm. Reiner Schmid Produktions GmbH offers you technical springs for all applications.
Technical springs are subject to ongoing development
Like many other technical parts, technical springs are subject to constant further development. These developments pay off, as they have succeeded in making technical springs even better matched to their own areas of application. However, despite all the milestones, one thing remained constant: this is the basic principle of the spring. Certainly very different materials are available for the production of the springs. However, steel and copper alloys are considered favorites. You will find a correspondingly wide application.
Schmid Schenkelfedern - quality at the highest level
Already in the project planning phase, we calculate the required parameters of your torsion spring such as force, kinematics, installation space and dynamic behavior and carry out load change tests. This gives you the highest possible product safety and quality.
Your requirements are our incentive
We implement your specific wishes reliably in our product solutions. In advance, we create drawings and samples or adapt the leg spring directly to our site. Only when you see your customer-specific quality requirements fulfilled, does our production start.
Thigh springs manufactured by Schmid
Your torsion spring or torsion spring we manufacture from high quality spring steel wire in Germany. The torsion springs are manufactured on CNC machines with different axes. In the cold forming process, we bring the spring steel wire into your desired shape. This results in mechanical energy storage for a wide variety of applications and industries.
To transmit the torque, you will find our torsion spring in building services or in mechanical and plant engineering, many consumer goods and in the automotive and electrical industries. Simple application examples are clothes peg, safety pin, mousetrap with beater or luggage carrier of bicycles. Using the safety pin as an example, it is easy to demonstrate a once-wound leg spring. The clothespin, however, is wound or wound several times in exact width.
Double-legged springs for the highest demands - precise and robust
Effectively, we use CNC machines with state-of-the-art control technology to produce your double-legged spring with high precision. Our production of stainless spring steel wire 1.4310 ensures good corrosion resistance. Tailored to your needs, we also offer common spring steel, spring bronze, brass, iron and titanium wire.
Powder coating, chemical, galvanic refining, chrome plating or surface roughening are also carried out competently and reliably for you. Alloying provides a higher resistance and makes the spring steel wire more robust, but without broadening its radius. We also produce thigh and double thigh springs in the natural look of the spring wire as well as in polished, frosted and colored variants.
Double Twist and Torsion Springs
Double-legged springs, also called double torsion or torsion springs, are constructed from two spring bodies. Thus, they have a double torque and can be used in numerous technical applications. The two spring legs distribute the forces optimally on both spring body. Mostly the thighs are on the outside. Thanks to our modern production technology, we also realize their position on the inside. Torsion springs are used in mechanical watches, in Drehspulmessinstrumenten or for suspension of vehicles; just to name a few.
Fast and timely execution
We produce fast, are flexible and keep agreed delivery dates. Our deliveries are made throughout Germany and in other European countries. We guarantee this service with the modern wire bending and winch centers of the series FMU, FTU and FSE of WAFIOS.
Large variety of springs and bent wire parts - detailed by Schmid
In addition to the high-quality torsion springs, we also find the right solution for your bent wire parts; also three-dimensional (3D) bent wire parts and complex variants. This is made possible by our specialized machine park, with which we also manufacture guide wires, spring clips, spring pins, contact and clip springs for stamped and bent parts, spring washers, hooks or your individual custom-made products in 3D. We succeed in this within a short time, no matter if it is a serial or single order.
