Lee Spring has added a new range of military specification springs to its catalogue, bringing its extensive stock spring offering up to over 22,000 springs. The new MIL-SPEC range consists of the Compression MS24585 and Extension MS24586, both of which can be customised to suit specific applications.
Lee Spring MIL-SPEC springs adhere to the United States Defence Standard and have been used in America to help achieve standardisation objectives set by the U.S. Department of Defence. This includes high precision designs which meet strict technical requirements to be used in a multitude of Military and Aerospace applications.
The MIL-SPEC range is available in four AS24585 and AS24586 approved materials. These include Uncoated Music Wire, Cadmium Plated Music Wire, Zinc Plated Music Wire, and Corrosion Resistant Stainless Steel 302, giving them the strong and durable yet flexible qualities needed in the industry.
Lee Spring has adapted some of its processes to adhere to the new MIL-SPEC designs. The standard for compression springs for loads below 20lbs used to be MS24585, and is now AS24585. The MIL-SPEC standard for extension springs for loads below 30lbs is AS24586; this was formerly MS24586.
The new range has brought Lee Spring’s extensive catalogue of stock springs to over 22,000 now and the company aims to continue expanding this number to include springs for every application and industry.
The new products, including the much anticipated UK MIL-SPEC range will be available from the new Lee Spring catalogue, due out soon. Please contact us for more information.
