Leading development skills for spring solutions tailored to specific requirements

Development skills

With the expertise of our skilled workers, we work together with you to develop springs that are tailored exactly to your application. 

To ensure an economic and high-quality manufacturing process, it is important to ideally coordinate the individual manufacturing steps. For each new product, we define the process steps and develop the production facilities to implement them. We use our own machines and modify standard machines according to your requirements. In addition to the central production processes, we also integrate the accompanying processes.

Our technology experts are continuously developing our processes so that we can implement sophisticated mass production solutions. Our expertise is systematically recorded in our FMEA system. Even at the risk analysis stage, we are already able to make informed statements about the feasibility of manufacture.

Working closely with the customer, MEDER provides professional support during the product development phase. We use 3D CAD software to adapt draft designs for parts to be developed to the ideal production technology. To meet requirements regarding load and life cycles, we use powerful calculation software.

In the resulting parts drawing, all tolerances are closely examined in terms of economic producibility. The drawing is optimized to ensure that as many additional operations as possible can be omitted or replaced by more cost-effective manufacturing processes.

With this approach, MEDER helps to keep costs for new developments as low as possible. And the time "from prototype to standard part" is minimized too.
The characteristics and costs are determined early, in the development phase for a product. For this reason is a production-oriented design of each individual spring of extreme importance.

We can manufacture prototypes on series production machines. Our customers can therefore already test the first close-to-production prototype samples during the development and testing phase.

A big plus here is that the technologies and expertise of the entire group of companies is available to draw on. Our experts work closely together in this area.

The technologies include

  • Wire and die sinking
  • Laser and water jet cutting
  • CNC stamping and bending
  • Embossing, stamping, fine blanking in sample frames and in production and test presses
  • CNC milling, turning and grinding
  • All common heat treatment processes and special hardening processes
  • Vibratory finishing
  • Laser welding

Wire and strip

MEDER calculates the optimum spring dimensions based on customer requirements using specially developed in-house spring calculation programs.

  • Calculation of compression, tension and torsion springs in accordance with DIN EN 13906-1 to 3 and quality specifications DIN EN 15800, DIN 2097 and DIN 2194
  • Spring optimization
  • Fatigue strength calculation, e.g. Goodman
  • Analysis of vibration behavior
  • Assistance with spring design for constantly stressed parts
The goal is to determine the optimum spring type, shape and dimensions in terms of function and cost.
