JB Springs has received certification to the ISO 9001:2015 quality management system, having successfully completed the transition from our existing ISO 9001:2008 certification. The ISO 9001:2015 standard is an assurance to customers that a company is committed to maintaining a consistent level of quality. The standard is based on a number of principles, including customer focus, the commitment of [...]
The latest video in our Springtelligence video series shows you what the difference is between active & dead (inactive) coils are on a compression spring.
British physicist Robert Hooke stated that there is a proportional relationship between the force required to extend or compress a spring, and the distance that the spring is extended or compressed. Here are 11 lesser known facts about the British physicist: He was born in Freshwater on the Isle of Wight. When he was a child he took an [...]
Robert Hooke was a British physicist who stated that there is a proportional relationship between the force required to extend or compress a spring, and the distance that the spring is extended or compressed. Hooke was a founding member and curator of experiments at the Royal Society – a society traditionally at the cutting edge of scientific discovery in [...]
Last month we welcomed the Year 10 pupils of Skipton Girls' High School to the factory, who were visiting a number of local companies to broaden their awareness of different engineering organisations. In any engineering industry there are physics involved, raw materials and processes, which all align with the curriculum content within the GCSE Engineering Specification. During their visit [...]
Internet inventor Colin Furze is renowned for his ‘mad inventions’. From his life-size Avengers-inspired Hulkbuster to the world’s fastest mobility scooter, Colin’s inventions range from the ingenious to the insane, and his latest project certainly caught our attention. Colin recently decided to replace a bicycle's traditional frame with three heavy-duty springs, which he creatively dubbed the ‘Bicycle of Springs’. [...]
The latest video in our Springtelligence video series will show you the winding direction of a spring. If two compression springs have to operate together (one inside the other) it is important for them to be wound in opposite directions, this will prevent the coils from getting entangled.
We were delighted to welcome members of the Keighley Association of Engineers to our factory last month. They were treated to a behind-the-scenes look into the complete spring manufacturing process which also included a question-and-answer session. With a history dating back over a hundred years, the Keighley Association of Engineers is as active today as when it first formed [...]
