Here we will see spring winders and wire bending machines in action. We have collected a lot of video over the years and plan to put our Greatest Hits
on this page. These won't be any standard videos. We want to show those one of a kind
jobs. The jobs that took a lot of ingenuity. The one that they said couldn't be done, and maybe even the ones you wish you hadn't done!
We'll get the ball rolling with our own video of but we do plan on asking you to send in your own Greatest Hits. We'll have more on that later.
COMPRESSION SPRING COILERS
This first set of videos shows smaller compression spring coilers making a variety of springs. As you will see most of them are NOT making standard compression springs, and many are using a torsion attachment. There are also some videos of the more sophisticated multi axis coilers. You can watch them here:
Then we go on to the larger spring coilers right on up to 20mm. You'll see spring winders making automotive coil springs with variable diameter and pitch, twist cutting, and a whole lot more. You can watch these here:
RADIAL TYPE SPRING AND WIRE FORMERS
We have these videos arranged starting with the 2 axis or more cam type machines showing a whole variety of unique setups. Some of these videos are quite old when the only machines available were two axis. The setups would most likely be done differently today. We want you to see the ingenuity that was used to accomplish the task with what they had.
Next, we show Camless Radial Formers. I've included some similar setups shown in the cam type radial formers, but notice the difference in how they were done. Also, notice the difference in speeds. The new technology has definitely enabled increased speeds with increased accuracy. You can watch them here:
AUTOMATION AND SPRING MAKING
What we like are those types of setups where you see all kinds of movement and action. That's what we want to show here. Spring coilers and wire formers with all kinds of additional equipment. Again, some of these videos are quite old and the setups would most likely be done differently today. It is just the pleasure of seeing the ingenuity that was used to accomplish the task with what they had.
You can watch them here:
CUSTOM MADE SPRING AND WIRE FORMERS
Here are some videos showing customized mechanical and CNC spring making machinery. Some of these are quite old but we feel it is a good record of the history of our industry. It also shows how ingenious some springmakers were.
You can watch them here:
TRAINING VIDEOS FOR SPRING MAKERS AND WIRE FORMERS
Here are some videos showing the basic techniques, methods, and thought patterns used for proper setup techniques used in spring making. We hope that you will find these useful for training new technicians in your companies.
This first video shows the basic setup techniques for two point coiling. The machine we are using happens to be a KHM 0.8mm coiler:
Here's a link to 2 point coiling training
Here's a link to the keyboard functions of a 2 axis radial former made by XinDa or EN
Keep coming back. Our team and other visitors to spring-makers-resource.net will be contributing more videos.
