The new Lee Spring catalogue lists over 19,000 different types of spring, including die springs, plastic springs, extension springs, REDUX™ wave springs, compression springs and torsion springs. When specifying a spring or fastener the first step is to consider the application it will be used for, in order to determine what type of spring or fastener is required.
Firstly, it will either be a ‘push application’
The conditions of the application will heavily impact the spring selection. For example, if the spring is required in a harsh environment such as underwater, in extremely high or low temperatures, or out in the open air it should be manufactured using a high performance ‘superalloy’

The Lee Spring Catalogue
The latest Lee Spring catalogue demonstrates the complete range of over 19,000 springs and spring fasteners available from Lee Spring, including metric and imperial (inches) products. Each type of spring has its own section which ends with a guide to the spring type and a clear guide to the tables containing technical data. If you are not sure what type of spring is required, the glossary in the catalogue will also help with specifying, according to application requirements. Specification forms are included at the back of the catalogue, along with a guide to using microns and a table of geometric solutions and conversion data.
If you still can’t find exactly what you are looking for to meet your application specific requirements Lee Spring also offers a custom spring design and manufacture service (http://www.leespring.co.uk/
