JB Springs was delighted to sponsor Skipton Girls’ High School (SGHS) Robotics Team, who were representing the Yorkshire and Humberside region in last month’s national robotics finals in Bristol. The SGHS Robotics Team won the right to represent Yorkshire and Humber at the UK finals after winning the regional round of the First Lego League; a global competition with over [...]
JB Springs’ David Whitfield was on hand to talk with hundreds of potential future engineers from the region’s schools at last week’s ‘Engineering Your Future’ careers event in Huddersfield. The event was organised by specialist recruitment firm maze8 Solutions at Kirklees College’s Engineering Centre on Wednesday 21st March, in association with Kirklees College, C&K Careers and Huddersfield Town [...]
This video in our Springtelligence video series will show you the gap between two adjacent coils of a compression spring and the simplest method of measuring the pitch on a compression spring.
The third video in our new Springtelligence video series will show you the Wire Diameter (d), Outside Diameter (OD), Inside Diameter (ID), and Mean Diameter (D) of a compression spring.
The most common type of spring you’ll come across (unless you’re a spring manufacturer) is a compression spring, due to its immense number of applications. So what is a compression spring and how does it work? A compression spring is a helical spring designed to resist pressure once applied. When a force is loaded onto the spring, it will [...]
The second video in our new Springtelligence video series will show you how to correctly measure the length of a compression spring. When specifying springs you must know your spring’s dimensions. There are millions of possibilities when it comes to spring design, so just knowing the working loads or the spring rate will not be enough as the spring can be any [...]
The first video in our new Springtelligence video series will show you how to correctly count the coils of a spring. If you think this sounds easy, then you might be surprised to learn that counting the coils of a spring is one of the most frequently misinterpreted concepts of spring manufacturing. Failure to count and specify coils correctly [...]
JB Springs is delighted to announce that we have today begun rolling out our ‘Springtelligence’ programme; a newly developed series of learning experiences to engage and inspire the next generation of spring engineers as well as providing them with knowledge and skills in the areas of spring engineering and manufacturing. 2018 The Year of Engineering campaign is a joint [...]
