Customer Success Story

Our OEM customer supplies heat sinks to the electronics industry to cool circuit boards. The heat sinks are held to the circuit boards with wire form spring clips. There are a variety of heat sinks, so our customer needs a variety of spring clips. Since our customer’s end customer is the one assembling the heat sink to the circuit board, the clips need to work every time. We custom manufacture every variation of clip our customer needs to precise specifications and provide individually bagged and labeled clips for direct shipment to the end customer.



Together We Achieved

  • Exact specifications
  • Precise tolerances
  • Custom packaging for direct shipment

Customer Wire Form Challenge

The spring clips are an integral part to the heat sink’s functionality. The spring clip has multiple bends, and the two sides must be mirror images of each other for the product to work correctly. Each spring clip is bagged and labeled so it can be packed unassembled with the OEM’s product. The OEM’s customers assemble the spring clip to the heat sink and to their printed circuit board. If a spring clip were out of tolerance, the OEM’s customer would find out first as opposed to on the OEM’s assembly line. Therefore, the OEM requires precise wire forming and packaging with near zero defects.


Master Spring Solution

Master Spring’s CNC wire forming machines with laser sensors monitor the multiple bends of these clips to ensure the two sides of the clip meet precise tolerances. Once formed, each spring clip is individually packed in a pre-labeled, heat-sealed bag that is ready to include in direct shipments.


Results

Because of Master Spring’s precise wire forming and packaging solution, our OEM customer can easily include a labeled and bagged wire form spring clip with every heat sink they ship. They know their wire form will work every time the end user opens the bag and assembles the clip to the heat sink.

Customer Success Story

A gaming and pinball manufacturer used a drop-target extension spring in its machines to release the game’s targets. Their extension spring had side loops on both ends to attach the spring to the target assembly. When engaged, the extension spring’s movement was distorted on one side, which eventually caused the spring to crack and shortened its life cycle.



Together We Achieved

  • A redesigned extension spring to increase the life cycle of the spring
  • Error-free assembly that leverages red dye for special loops

Customer Extension Spring Challenge

Our customer, a gaming and pinball manufacturer, used drop-target extension springs with side loops for their pinball machines. Although this spring design worked, it had a short life cycle. Our customer needed assistance designing a quality spring that would last.


Master Spring Solution

This extension spring showcases Master Spring’s design expertise and finishing capabilities. Upon seeing how one side loop experienced excess stress, our engineer recommended making one single side loop into a double loop at a 45-degree angle. This angle stopped the distorted movement and stress, and the double loop increased the spring’s strength. Additionally, to achieve an error-free assembly, Master Spring applied red dye to the 45-degree double looped end. The assembly operators could easily identify the angled loop and assemble it correctly.


Results

By redesigning the loop on one side of the extension spring, Master Spring manufactured an extension spring with less distortion, less cracking and a longer life cycle. We achieved error-free assembly by dyeing one end of the spring red to help the assembler easily identify which looped end to install to the target assembly.
