"Improving the technical performance of springs through scientific understanding of dynamic stress profiles using advances in software design and measurement technologies."

The European Commission has funded a project to support the community of over 600 European SME spring manufacturers with a toolkit for innovation in spring design.

The consortium of partners believes that this programme has improved the spring design process, and has provided answers to many of the questions about spring performance. The spring community at large has acquired the knowledge and know-how to individualise their strategy and approach to product development, with an increase in performance and durability.
